Another reoccurring guest for the Raiders in mock drafts all over the internet is Kenneth Murray, and incredibly talented linebacker from Oklahoma, and for good reason. The Raiders have struggled at linebacker for years, and for some reason have completely ignored improving the position.
Luckily, I believe Mike Mayock will fix this in 2020.
Unless Isaiah Simmons is available, the Raiders should 100% take Kenneth Murray in the first round. Murray has the speed and athleticism to fly around the field and make tackles, as well as cover crossing routes and tight ends when needed.
Tahir Whitehead can rack up tackles, but outside of stuffing the stat sheet, what big plays has he made for the Raiders through his two seasons with the team? The Raiders badly need a playmaker in the middle of the field, and Kenneth Murray is the guy.
