In the most recent version of Pro Football Focus' mock draft, they go three rounds deep. In the first round they pick a player at a position I had not seen any other mock drafts go. They went with Baylor wide receiver Corey Coleman.

It's an interesting choice, especially considering it would mean the Raiders go wide receiver with their top pick two years in a row.

PFF loves Coleman, comparing him to Steve Smith. They have him as their top rated wide receiver in this year's draft and the first wide receiver off the board at 14 overall. Meanwhile, the consensus top wide receiver Laquon Treadwell, they have at fifth and barely sneaking into the first round in their rankings, and as the first pick of the second round in this mock draft.

The 5-11, 199-pound Coleman showed impressive speed, running a 4.37 40-yard-dash at his pro day which would have been good for second fastest at the scouting combine.

In some ways he reminds me of Amari Cooper, though Cooper is more polished with his hands and route running. Both have game breaking abilities. It seems difficult to imagine the Raiders using their top pick two years in a row on two receivers so similar. Cooper was the real deal, top five pick wide receiver. Coleman has question marks including his hands.
