It was a busy day for the Las Vegas Raiders on Saturday, as they made the signings of all seven of their draft picks official. This was the second class for general manager Mike Mayock and head coach Jon Gruden.
This comes just one day after the NFL and NFLPA reached an agreement on new healthy and player safety ruled adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic. With this agreement reached, NFL Training Camp will start on scheduled. (Thank goodness!)
Earlier this week, the team began reporting to camp at the brand new facility in Henderson, Nevada.
Here are the seven players the Raiders signed, along with a quick recap of them:
