The Las Vegas Raiders made a shocking pick in the first round on Thursday night with the selection of Alabama tackle Alex Leatherwood.

Leatherwood was considered a major surprise and a reach. Once again, Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock locked into a player and took him.

They could have traded down and gotten Leatherwood later. He may be a great player in the future, but the Raiders didn’t get much value out of the No. 17 pick.

We also discussed other topics surrounding the first round.
