Jeffrey Okudah (CB)
The chances of the Raiders getting Jeffrey Okudah is slim, as he will likely be drafted early, but weird things tend to happen with cornerbacks in the draft, so if Okudah slides to the Raiders, they should take him.
Okudah is the consensus best corner in all of college football. Okudah plays great man coverage, does a great job of putting his body on receivers and disturbing their routes, and his speed gives him room for error. Okudah matched up with Mullen could end up being one of the best cornerback duos in the NFL.
Davon Hamilton (DL)
Davon Hamilton’s workload was not noticed much because of the shine of Chase Young, but Davon Hamilton had a lot to do with the great pass rush of Ohio State this season. Teams tended to double team Hamilton often this season, giving other players chances to shine.
Hamilton could fall to the Raiders in the third round of the draft, adding not only another great interior defensive linemen to an already solid group, but adding one with pass-rushing ability, as well. Hamilton has recorded 19 sacks in his college career and would be another young talent on the defensive line for the Raiders.
Malik Harrison (LB)
If the Raiders do not go after Simmons or Murray in the first round, Harrison would be a solid pick for the Raiders. Like any linebacker the Raiders should be looking at, Harrison has the athleticism to cover receivers, as well as make tackles in any situation.
Harrison’s best attribute is his tackling, but his ability to shed blocks and make plays is something that is overlooked. Harrison will be a pro-ready player that can make an immediate impact in the NFL, especially on a team like the Raiders.
