The Raiders sent scouts home, and have been rumored to be prepared to make a “surprise pick” at 4 overall. There are a few scenarios where a player like Nick Bosa or Quinnen Williams potentially falls to 4 overall but most likely they should be gone before the Raiders make their selection.Looking at Mayock’s top 10 prospects going back to 2013 it seems he favors size and athletic ability more than anything. If you look at the Buccaneers drafts from 2002-2009, Gruden would frequently take a WR with one of his first picks. So in predicting this “surprise pick” I’ve narrowed it down to a few players.Round 1, Pick 4: Hakeem Butler, WR, Iowa StateBefore you get too upset, think of the possibilities here. Butler has the potential to become the next Calvin Johnson type receiver in the NFL. At the very least he should pan out similarly to Mike Evans. Both Johnson and Evans were 6’5 225+ pound receivers taken in the top 10 of the NFL draft. Butler is the same size but comes into the NFL even more advanced as a route runner, considering he’s played in an air raid scheme that asked him to line up at every WR position, a skillset Jon Gruden covets. Butler has even been working out with Calvin Johnson this off-season as he prepares for his NFL career. His addition to the already crowded reRound 1, Pick 24: Dalton Risner, OL, Kansas StateIf one player epitomizes a Gruden Grinder in this draft its Kansas State offensive lineman Dalton Risner. Risner started at center, right guard, and right tackle during four years at Kansas State earning All-American honors twice.Noted for his nasty attitude and physical play style,Risner hasn’t given up a sack for the last two seasons at right tackle. Many predictions point to Risner being better suited as a guard in the NFL and this is likely where he’ll latch on with the Raiders if taken. Getting a skilled offensive lineman who can play multiple spots along the line adds value to Risner’s stock.Round 1 Antonio Brown Jersey , Pick 27: Jerry Tillery, DL, Notre DameWith all the top rated edge rushers off the board here, Tillery makes sense for the Raiders to target at the end of round 1. The 6’6 290lb defensive tackle is more of a pass rusher than a traditional run stuffer in fact his pass rush grade per Pro Football Focus was tied with Quinnen Williams among all interior defenders. Tillery has the length and body type to play base defensive end, and he may be suited better there on run downs before sliding inside and adding to the defensive tackle rotation on passing downs. Hurst and Tillery providing push up the middle would make the interior rush something to behold.Round 2, Pick 35: Anthony Nelson, DE, IowaLevi tells me Nelson isn’t going as high as I have him mocked, but this is one player I’d bet on getting drafted higher than the narrative predicts. Nelson first off is huge, standing at 6’7and 270lbs, he has the length that Paul Guenther loves. After his combine performance, Nelson has been compared to Pro-Bowlers from JJ Watt, to Joey Bosa to Chandler Jones in terms of athletic testing. Nelson is a player who can step in right away as a run defender and pass rusher. Nelson isn’t flashy but has the tools and blue collar demeanor that should make him successful in the NFL for the next 8-10 years.Round 4, Pick 106: Germaine Pratt, LB, NC StateRound 4 linebackers are the type of player who usually end up on the roster bubble and special teams. Pratt has a tough scheme change ahead of him in the NFL, only playing linebacker for 2 seasons after converting from safety, the 2018 ACC leader in tackles was asked to play as a hybrid linebacker/pass rusher in a role that simply isn’t used in the NFL. For this reason Pratt could fall to the 4th round, but with his ability to knock ball carriers backwards, nose for the ball Derek Carr Jersey , and added value as a blitzer (6 sacks in 2018), Pratt could be one of those late round LBs Guenther has always talked about developing.Round 5, Pick 140: Alexander Mattison, RB, Boise StateMattison is one of the most polarizing runningbacks in this class. Some think he’s the best, some think there’s no way he is able to replicate his success at Boise State in the NFL. The type of plays that Mattison put in his highlight reel are pretty spectacular, weaving through defenses, stepping through arm tackles, and even leaping over defenders, Mattison won’t be denied on his quest to tote the rock to the promise land. Maybe his long speed is lackingRound 7, Pick 218: Iman Marshall DB, USCFew corners put up the type of tackle production that Marshall posted at Southern Cal. Racking up a whopping 218 tackles in 48 games played, Marshall fits the physicality that Guenther seems to be looking for in cornerbacks. There is also discussion if Marshall would be better suited as a free safety in the NFL because his production on the ball (passes defensed and interceptions) doesn’t quite match what NFL teams are looking for on the outside. Having a versatile defensive back in the secondary can never hurt your team and would provide insurance at multiple positions.Round 7, Pick 235: Hunter Renfrow, WR, ClemsonRaiders fans have been clamouring for a true slot receiver for years. Renfrow is not a flashy player but his knack for making a big play in a big moment helped power Clemson to 2 National Championships in 3 years. Renfrow showed he is a highly skilled route runner at the Senior Bowl, putting opposing defensive backs in the spin cycle and uncovering with ease. Size concerns are legitimate and Renfrow’s hands and arms measured amongst the smallest at any position in this draft process. He is a gamer and would compete for a spot in this crowded WR room. There is turnover every year. The Raiders won’t do anything close to the house cleaning they did last year with Gruden coming in and putting his stamp on the roster. But cuts are inevitable. And not just the ones that happen after training just prior to the start of the season. Prime cutsDonald PennThe final year of Penn’s contract was the one he held out for in 2017 camp. It was always meant to offer security for him. He then renegotiated the deal prior to last year’s camp because there was no way he was coming back under the previous deal. At the age of 35 and with injuries ending his last three seasons – the latest after four games – do the Raiders even think he’s worth the $7.2 million he would make next season? Or would they take the $1.75 million cap hit and go for all new blood at both tackle spots? Well, since they seem set on Kolton Miller as the future at left tackle, and that’s where Penn belongs, we may have seen the life-long Raiders fan play his last game in Silver & Black.Seth RobertsLast year Reggie Nelson Jersey , Roberts was said to be on the trade block. But no trade ended up happening and cutting him would have left too much dead money behind. That’s not the case this time around. Roberts is due $4.65 million with no dead money if cut or traded. Roberts is a fine slot receiver who can start in a pinch. He also is a tremendous blocker, which increases his value. But should the Raiders look to add some major talent at receiver – and they should – Roberts’s contract might be a bit steep for a fourth wide receiver.AJ McCarron The moment Nathan Peterman entered the building, McCarron’s place on the team was brought into question. Gruden loves Nathan Peterman. Why, we’ll never really know, but he does. And he was just signed to a reserve/futures deal, making his contract as cheap as they come. McCarron is set to make $3.1 million this season. The Raiders traded a 5th round pick for the journeyman QB last offseason. Maybe they could get one back in another trade?Derek Carrier One of the first free agent signings, he was to be a hybrid tight end/wide receiver in Gruden’s offense. Seven catches for 67 yards and a touchdown isn’t really lighting things up. It certainly isn’t worth $1.7 million – his 2019 salary. Also figure, when they signed Darren Waller off the Ravens’ practice squad prior to week 14, he began contributing pretty much immediately. In his three games with the Raiders the 6-6, 255-pounder surpassed Carrier’s entire season receiving total with 6 catches on 6 targets for 75 yards, adding a 21-yard run on an end around. Meanwhile Carrier didn’t have a catch over those final three games.Keep an eye on...Kelechi OsemeleThis one may seem far-fetched. And I certainly don’t recommend it. When Osemele is good, he’s really good. And the Raiders aren’t exactly hurting for cap relief, with nearly $80 million in expected money available. That being said, Osemele is set to be the third highest paid guard in the league this season at $10.2 million. And he leaves behind no dead money should he be cut or traded. With two years left on his deal with the Raiders at the age of 30, he could command a nice return in a trade if someone is willing to either take on his salary, or give him a new contract. With the Raiders being in a rebuild, would it be at all surprising if they went with a younger, cheaper guard? Perhaps re-signing free agent Jon Feliciano? Perhaps they liked what they saw from in-season waiver claim Denzelle Good? Perhaps using one of their five draft picks in the top three rounds?
