With their second of two fifth round picks, the Las Vegas Raiders stay on the offensive side of the ball, selecting a versatile offensive lineman from Ohio State. Thayer Munford is a player who played offensive tackle with the Buckeyes, but could move inside, making him a valuable piece for this Raiders unit up front on offense.
Las Vegas has significant issues to address along the offensive line this offseason, as they still do not know what they are going to get out of Alex Leatherwood, and have some key pieces entering free agency. They may have to bring in two new starters when all is said and done, and while Munford would not be a start, his versatility could help them utilize salary cap money elsewhere.
Munford is one of seven members of the Ohio State program that was invited to the NFL Scouting Combine, so we will get a better look at him over then next few weeks. Being able to play multiple spots could lead to him rising in the NFL Draft, but he is likely a Day 3 pick, and the Raiders have three selections across the fourth and fifth rounds.
