2021 7-round NFL Mock Draft lands Las Vegas Raiders a right tackle
By Brad Weiss
One of the more interesting prospects in the 2021 NFL Draft is Chazz Surratt, who was once the starting quarterback for the North Carolina Tar Heels and then went on to be one of the best linebackers in college football. This is an incredibly athletic player, hits with a ton of power, and would be a nice addition to a position group that should be much better in 2021.
With Bradley coming in, you can expect a better year out of Cory Littleton, who struggled in Year 1 in the Silver and Black in 2020. With Nicholas Morrow returning, and Nick Kwiatkoski playing well last season, the Raiders have some good talent at linebacker, and Surratt would certainly upgrade them in terms of their depth.
Surratt has a lot of positives about him, as he is a potential three-down backer, and has the ability to track plays as they happen. He is not huge in terms of his size, but he would be an excellent outside linebacker at the NFL level and would give the Raiders four players at linebacker who can make an impact, something they have not had in quite some time.
