The Raiders pulled their most recent visit from just up the road. Last week they had San Jose State safety Akeem King in for a visit according to USA Today's Tom Pelissero.

King started all last season at safety for the Spartans. The 6-1, 215-pounder was originally recruited to SJSU as a receiver and by his junior year, he was making the transition to defensive back.

He opened some eyes at his Pro Day with a 4.39 40-yard-dash, which earned him some NFL visits including the Falcons and Seahawks along with the Raiders.

He still projects as at best a 7th round pick as a strong safety and special teams player.
