2016 Oakland Raiders Mock Draft v.6 (FINAL)

Begin here to start the slide show of Raider Watch's 2016 Oakland Raider Mock Draft.

(* - All projected draft rounds were provided by nfldraftscout.com in conjunction with cbssports.com)
Round 1-14 (#14)     
   SS Darron Lee 
Height: 6'00 ¾  Weight: 232lbs  40 (10 split): 4.47 (1.54)

The Raiders draft Lee as a hybrid LB-S.
Round 2-13 (#44)
      DT/DE Jon Bullard 
Height: 6'03"  Weight: 285lbs  40 (10 split): 4.93 (1.65)

In my opinion, Bullard is best suited a 3-technique DT.
Round 3-12 (#75)     
  LB  Joshua Perry 
6'03 ¾"  Weight: 254lbs
  40 (10 split): 4.68 (1.64)

In the past I have lambasted Perry for not playing downhill and attacking the LoS, until I've begun to reconsider Perry for what his is. Perry is an off-the-ball LB who happens to be built like a defensive lineman. Perry's coverage needs work but he can be stout at the point of attack (PoA). He stacks linemen well but needs to use his hands better and shed.
Round 4-16 (#114)
Jerell Adams
Height: 6'05 Weight: 247lbs  40 (10 split): 4.64 (1.64)

Some will not understand this pick but Adams is arguably BPA at this point. Adams and Warford compliment each other well and the Raiders would implement tons of double TE sets. Think Gronk & Hernandez or Gronk & Bennett!
Round 5-4 (#143) - via DALL
        RB Daniel Lasco 
Height: 6'00 ¼"  Weight: 209lbs
  40 (10 split): 4.46 (1.54)

Lasco is a RB with excellent H/W/S with lots of production operating out of the shotgun in 2014.
Round 5-15 (#154)
Marquez North 
Height: 6'02 ½"  Weight: 223lbs  40 (10 split): 4.48 (1.60)

Marquez North is one of my favorite WR developmental prospects in the draft. Not only does his stock represent value but tremendous developmental potential as well.  If you are the kind of draftnik enthusiast that is intrigued by prospects that become better professional players than collegiate ones then you understand the analogy that North may be the next Chris Cooley. North's ceiling isn't too high but North has found his stock stunted by injuries that derailed a college career that was short but has injected North into Volunteer lore with spectacular highlight reel catches.

At the 2016 Senior Bowl the Raiders interviewed UCLA WR Jordan Payton. I write this because there will be those who would suggest that the Raiders are set at WR with Crabs, Coop, Holmes & Roberts but that interview suggests that the front office is open to addressing the depth at the position and could carry as many as 6 WRs on the active roster. UCLA's Payton is projected as a 3rd rounder, North has a better H/W/S ratio and is a more dynamic player provided he's healthy. In addition, North has a Raider connection playing for Tennessee which is the alma mater of both McKenzie and Clinkscales.
Round 6-19 (#194) - via IND
S Jayron Kearse 
6'04"  Weight: 216lbs
  40 (10 split): 4.62 (1.62)

I love this kids potential as a developmental safety. I trust that secondary coaches Robertson & Woodson can do wonders with Kearse.
Round 7-13 (#234)     
LS Nathan Theus 
6'02 ⅝"  Weight: 243lbs  40 (10 split): 4.94 (1.74)

Condo is getting up there and expensive . . . .
