Raiders select DE Christo Bilukidi in sixth round

This was a sleeper pick if there ever was one. There isn't much known about Bilukidi. More time is spent typing out his name than was spent putting together scouting reports. Georgia State is a relatively new football program and Bilukidi is the first player ever drafted into the NFL from the school.

The 6-5, 290 pound defensive end has the frame to put on weight if the Raiders asked him to do so. Otherwise, he is an ideal weight for a 3-4 defensive end.

He was born in Angola and his father was an Angolan diplomat which had him traveling around the world. He has lived in France, Brazil and Ottawa Ontario. He attended Eastern Arizona Junior College before transferring to Georgia State.

He was a two-year starter for the Panthers at defensive tackle and defensive end. He was rated among the top 15 prospects... in the CFL.

He had 38 tackles last season along with five sacks. As a junior, he had 51 total tackles with seven tackles for loss and five sacks and was voted the team's Outstanding Defensive Lineman by his teammates.

Like the Raiders' fifth round selection, Jack Crawford, Bilukidi was a basketball star in high school and didn't start playing football until his senior season.

The Raiders are building quite a basketball team if nothing else.
