They drafted defensive end Clelin Ferrell, cornerback Trayvon Mullen and wide receiver Hunter Renfrow in 2019, then linebacker Tanner Muse and guard John Simpson last year.
It would not be a surprise if the Raiders’ Clemson streak continues in this year’s draft. One name to consider is tackle Jackson Carman, who just had a great pro day.
Had one prominent scout tell me he loves Carman as the steal of the draft. Absolutely over the moon for his tape. https://t.co/nnNpfUIz1U— Matt Verderame (@MattVerderame) March 11, 2021
Of course, the Raiders have a need at right tackle with Trent Brown being traded to the New England Patriots. So a Carman fit makes a lot of sense. I’m sure we’ll be talking more about the Raiders and Clemson players as the April 29-May 1 draft approaches.
In other Raiders’ links:
