The Raiders now have their entire 2015 draft class under contract with the signing of second-round draft pick DE  Mario Edwards Jr.

In total, the Raiders had ten selections in the 2015 draft. The rest of the players are WR  Amari Cooper (1st round, 4th overall), TE  Clive Walford (3rd round) G/C Jon Feliciano (4th round), LB  Ben Heeney (5th round), LB  Neiron Ball (5th round), DE  Max Valles (6th round), and T Anthony Morris, WR  Andre Debose and CB  Dexter McDonald (7th round).

As the 35th overall pick, Edwards signs a 4-year, $6 million deal with a 2015 cap figure of $1,094,030 million according to spotrac.com

The 6-foot-3, 280-pound defensive end played three seasons at Florida State, appearing in 36 games with 26 starts. Edwards totaled 89 tackles (52 solo), eight sacks, seven passes defensed, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries, helping the Seminoles win the 2013 BCS National Championship.

Edwards Jr. was named to the All-ACC First Team as a junior in 2014, setting a career high with 44 tackles (25 solo), including 11 tackles for loss. He was also named the ACC Defensive Lineman of the Week twice last season.
