No question the Raiders are doing their homework on the available outside linebackers in this draft. Which you might expect considering the general manager, head coach and defensive coordinator all being former NFL linebackers themselves.

They had already hosted former Georgia linebacker Leonard Floyd. Now they are reportedly to meet with Floyd's Georgia teammate Jordan Jenkins according to NFL Network's Rand Getlin as well as former USC linebacker Su'A Cravens according to Sirius XM's Ed Borsilli.

As for Jenkins, he is a 6-3, 259 pounder who put up 19.0 sacks and 40.0 tackles for loss over four seasons with the Bulldogs. His 36.5" combine vertical is top five at his position. He was average in most every other event, including his 4.77 40-yard-dash time. He is projected by most as a round two pick.

Cravens is what they call a tweener. He is a linebacker by trade, but at just 6-1, 222 pounds, he could have some teams looking at him as a strong safety - a position at which Raiders have a need. He had 10.5 sacks and 33.5 tackles for loss in three seasons with the Trojans. He is projected as a late first round to early second round pick.
