Oakland Raiders Draft WR Hunter Renfrow: Twitter reacts
By Brad Weiss
The Oakland Raiders traded up to select Hunter Renfrow in the fifth round, and here is how the Twitter world reacted to the selection.
The Oakland Raiders made a quick move up the draft order in the fifth round, sending two picks to the Dallas Cowboys to move up nine spots. Originally expected to draft at 158, the Raiders moved up to 149, selecting their third Clemson star in three days.
After taking Clelin Ferrell at No. 1 overall in the first round, and then Trayvon Mullen at No. 40 in the second, the Raiders selected wide receiver Hunter Renfrow at No. 149 overall in the fifth. Renfrow had one of the biggest catches in Clemson history, beating Alabama a few years back with the game-winning touchdown catch, and the hope is he can bring some of that winning attitude to the Raiders.
Renfrow is going to be perfect in the slot, serving as another security blanket for quarterback Derek Carr. For as bad as this wideout group was to end the 2018 season, it could be one of the best in the AFC in 2019.

By trading up for Renfrow, the Raiders now hold only one more selection in the 2019 NFL Draft, the No. 230 overall pick in the seventh round. This has been a very solid first NFL Draft for general manager Mike Mayock, as the roster definitely got better over the last three days.
