Raiders with a bit of a reach with pick #17

Las Vegas Raiders go with the big man, Alex Leatherwood out of The University of Alabama. Can’t go wrong with Bama baby. Although, with a Mel Kelper rating of a mid to late 2nd rounder, does this seem like a reach? Potentially, but this pick screams Jon Gruden. Get a guard to build with bigs.

Hopefully, he can play with his feet and keep his shoulders low and he’ll have no problem making a name for himself in Sin City. I really wanted a flashy player to fall to Vegas because I wanted to talk about how sick their new stadium is, but this didn’t rev my engine.
