The 6-1, 195-pound cornerback was named second-team All-American by ACFA and second-team All-ACC in 2018 while earning All-ACC Honorable Mention in 2017. He his best on the big stage, pulling in his only interception of last season along with a sack and forced fumble vs Alabama in the National Championship game, winning Defensive MVP.
All of the Raiders day three picks were signed ahead of rookie minicamp. These two signings leaves just their two low first round picks still to be signed — RB Josh Jacobs, and S Johnathan Abrams. At this rate, they could be signed in short order.
