The Raiders got Twitter talking on Thursday as they selected Alabama offensive lineman Alex Leatherwood with pick No. 17 in the NFL Draft.

This is the team’s official reaction, which is positive at least!

Raiders reach again?

If you’re shocked by the Raiders’ pick, making a surprising move in the first round isn’t anything uncommon for them.

I know we all have some really fun photos in our phone, but over 1,000?!? We gotta see what some of these pictures are.

It looks like it could be a good pick ...

Although a lot of people are hating on the pick, there is some optimism that it was a good pick made.

Even this former Raider loved it:
