Las Vegas Raiders 7-round post-combine 2020 mock draft
By Nick Ellis
The Raiders select another linebacker here to kick off their three third round picks, and unless the team hits linebackers in free agency extremely hard, they are going to have to take two linebackers at some point. Troy Dye is a player that can do it all at the position, and is one of the more versatile linebackers in this draft class.
He is a great downhill hitter, as well as being able to cover tight ends and read plays. Dye also can develop a pass rush when needed, especially on the outside. An outside linebacker who can come up and make plays off the edge is just what this team needs, especially with Maxx Crosby and Clelin Ferrell expected to take another step forward in Year 2.
Dye recorded 84 total tackles last season, as well as 15 career sacks with Oregon. With a high football IQ and great speed, add some strength to Dye and he should be a great addition to the Raiders.
