Raiders select T.J. Carrie with pick 219

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Raiders have taken another cornerback in the seventh round.

The Raiders have done a great job addressing their major areas of need with this draft. They used their first of three seventh round selections on...

T.J. Carrie, CB, Ohio

Carrie is another big-bodied cornerback just a hair shy of six feet tall. He's a speed guy who runs a 4.45 40-yard-dash and was considered by some as a candidate for a mid-round pick. More depth and value here for the Raiders.

The big corner is a product of Antioch in the East Bay and attended high school powerhouse De La Salle in Concord, which has produced numerous NFL stars including Raiders own Maurice Jones-Drew. Carrie can also return punts, adding to his value to the team.

He was first team All-MAC as a punt returner in 2013 and third team All-MAC as a cornerback.

He has a history of injuries. He suffered a hip injury in 2009 and redshirted that season. He was a medical redshirt again in 2012 with a shoulder injury. Then he suffered a knee injury in the scouting combine this year. Due to his six years of college, he is now 24-years-old.

Carrie served as a team captain for Ohio the past two seasons, showing he has leadership skills and the respect of his teammates. Carrie, when healthy, will add quality depth to a defensive back corps that has already gained Keith McGill today in addition to what the Raiders gained in free agency.
