It’s well documented, the Raiders are looking to enhance their wide receiving corps with the effort of finding a true WR1. Oklahoma’s CeeDee Lamb exhibits everything you look for in a pass catcher, making a strong case for the top spot among wide receivers, alongside Alabama’s Jerry Jeudy.
During the week of the NFL Combine, Lamb said he met with the Raiders and he appeared intrigued with the coach Gruden.
“Just to potentially be playing in the NFL, I’m grateful,” Lamb said at the Combine. “But playing for the Raiders and Coach Gruden, it would be a huge honor on my end. Like I said, I’m very grateful for the opportunity. I truly mean that.”
Lamb played three years at Oklahoma, hauling in 62 receptions for 1,327 yards and 14 touchdowns during his junior year. Most notably, Lamb hangs hit hat on playing physical with the opposition, while tracking the ball in flight with the ability to adjust accordingly. Ultimately, his ball skills are what separates him from other receiving prospects as Lamb is one of the more natural pass-catchers in this year’s draft class.
