19. Las Vegas Raiders (f/CHI): LB Kenneth Murray, Oklahoma
Kenneth Murray is the best true linebacker in this class. He can play on the inside and outside, but will most likely be a weakside linebacker, who can shift to the inside on passing downs. Although players like Troy Dye and Patrick Queen have shot up the draft board, they will likely not go in the first round. They are more likely to go on day two.
When you look at the Raiders defense, they need a linebacker with speed, who can support the run, and help in coverage. Surprisingly to some, the Raiders were pretty good against tight ends this past season, but focusing on tight ends has allowed the outside receivers to get open.
Murray had 155 total tackles in 2018, and 102 in 2019. He also had 17 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks in 2019. If the Raiders want to get Paul Guenther the type of playmaker on defense that can make a difference, Murray is his guy.
