With the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft upon us, it’s time to put out my 7-round mock draft. Currently the Raiders have 11 picks in the draft, but that may change with some trades
Round 1, pick 14* (via GB)— Mike McGlinchey, OT, Notre Dame
Round 2, pick 41 — Harrison Phillips, DT, Stanford
Round 3, pick 75 — Royce Freeman, RB, Oregon
Round 3, pick 76* (via GB) — Malik Jefferson, LB, Texas
Round 4, pick 110 — Daesean Hamilton, WR, Penn State
Round 4, pick 117** (via DET) — Michael Dickson, P, Texas
Round 5, pick 159 (from NE) — PJ Hall, DT, Sam Houston State
Round 6, pick 185 — Parry Nickerson, CB, Tulane
Round 6, pick 212 (Comp) — Kahlil McKenzie, DT, Tennessee
Round 6, pick 216 (Comp) — Frank Ginda, LB, San Jose State
Round 7, pick 228 -- Russell Gage, WR, LSU
*Raiders trade down with Packers for their picks at 14, 76, and 138.
**Raiders trade up, sending their picks at 138, 173, and 217 to the Lions for their pick at 117
With my predicted trades, the Raiders still end up with 11 draft picks. I have a feeling their draft trades will ultimately put them with fewer than 11 picks. Quality over quantity and all that. Just what they would be is harder to predict.
