The Las Vegas Raiders drafted versatile defensive playmaker Tanner Muse out of Clemson. Here is how the safety turned linebacker fits in with the Silver and Black.
The current regime running the Las Vegas Raiders certainly have a thing for Clemson players. Including Tanner Muse, the Mike Mayock era Raiders have chosen five former Tigers and so far it has paid great dividends for the Silver and Black.
The 2020 batch of former Tigers will have some work to do to catch up to the contributions of the 2019 class, all three of which are starters on offense and defense, but if they are rotation players that would be good enough. It was a guarantee that the Raiders would focus on building the defense during the offseason and that approached continued in from free agency in to the NFL Draft.
Muse was the second defensive player picked by the Raiders in the 2020 draft and he is yet another player, similar to Lynn Bowden, that will have to change positions in the NFL. His tweener status makes him an intriguing prospect so let’s take a look at what makes Muse so interesting and where he fits in with the Raiders.
