Watch: Raiders Eddie Vanderdoes destroys an All-Pro tackle

Raiders rookie over powers Jack Conklin

NFL: Oakland Raiders Rookie Minicamp Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Raiders rookie 3rd round pick Eddie Vanderdoes may not have filled up the stat sheet Sunday against the Titans with only one tackle and a single QB hit registered, but he made his presence felt. Like on this play in the red zone.

Vanderdoes uses a “forklift” to put the Titans All-Pro offensive tackle Jack Conklin on his back and help force an incomplete pass. A 3rd round rookie defensive tackle shouldn’t embarrass and All-Pro offensive lineman let alone make it look this easy. Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie may have found a real steal in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Here it is from a few different angles and in slowmotion:
