On Saturday, Sirius XM NFL Radio with Pat Kirwan and Jim Miller put together a mock draft of the first two rounds of the draft. They switched back and forth with the picks. For both the Raiders first and second round picks it was Jim Miller who made the pick. Here is who he chose:
Round 1, pick 4
Kevin White, WR, West Virginia
This is a common selection. Recently when putting together a collection of mock drafts from around the sports world, White was the most common selection. In this mock draft, Leonard Williams was off the board, having gone third to the Jaguars. Miller thinks the Raiders take White over the more accomplished Amari Cooper out of Alabama.
Round 2, pick 35
Preston Smith, DE, Mississippi State
This is an interesting pick mainly because Smith is viewed by many to be more of a fit as a 3-4 defensive end. Though his 6-5. 270-pound build and 9.0 sacks last season could have him as a DE in a 4-3 as well or perhaps offer some versatility to shift inside and allow multiples as the Raiders have been known to deploy in recent years.
Here are the entire first and second rounds as drafted by Kirwan and Miller:
