Las Vegas Raiders 7-round 2021 NFL Mock Draft continues revamp on defense
The Raiders continue to add defensive players in our latest mock draft, this time bringing in someone who can help them within their revamped linebacker group. So far in 2020, Nick Kwiatkoski has proven worth the money in free agency, but Cory Littleton has struggled, and that is already cause for concern.
With pick No. 47 overall, Las Vegas adds Jeremiah Osusu-Koramoah, a tremendously gifted athlete from the University of Notre Dame. In an age when you need your linebackers to not only bring the thunder when tackling, but also be solid in coverage, Owusu-Koramoah fits the bill in both those categories.
A hybrid-type linebacker, he plays all over the field for the Fighting Irish, coming up on the edge, playing back in coverage, and making plays happen in the backfield. Not afraid to come up and fill the hole when needed, he is an explosive player with outstanding burst, and racked up 13.5 tackles for a loss last season.
