Raiders 2017 Draft picks

Raiders remaining needs:
DT, RB, S
In the 7th round, teams don’t usually pay all that much attention to filling needs. Just find some sleepers and special teamers and hope at least one of them pans out.
The Raiders grabbed Vadal Alexander in the 7th round last year. Alexander was projected as a day two pick initially, so he was worth a chance in the 7th round. Cornerback TJ Carrie was also a Raiders round seven selection in 2014.
