Analysis: The Raiders added one of the high risers in round 1 with Kolton Miller, they added two of my favorite small school players in P.J. Hall, and Brandon Parker. They also added 2 defenders who look like steals, Arden Key, who had 1st round potential, and Nick Nelson, who should be able to play despite his injury. They also got a steal in Maurice Hurst, who I have no clue why he fell, after all he did get clearance that all is fine with his heart. And they got a steal in round 7 with Marcell Ateman, giving Derek Carr another weapon. A solid draft by the Raiders.
