The Las Vegas Raiders had to forfeit their sixth-round pick due to repeated violations of the league’s policies on COVID-19. Because of that, they will not pick again until the seventh round, where they continue to bolster the defensive side of the ball.

Paddy Fisher is a smart player with an incredible amount of tackles during his career at Northwestern, but his lack of athleticism is really going to hurt his stock. He likely won’t be an every-down linebacker at the next level but could become a solid two-down backup.

Las Vegas is in desperate need of help on defense, and in Fisher, they get a guy who could come in and provide depth as a rookie.
