27. Oakland Raiders: Ole Miss Wide Receiver A.J. Brown
For their third and final pick of the first round, it only seems fair to have the Oakland Raiders go with offense if they start off with two defenders, right?
It’s crazy to think how any team could manage to land this many drafts picks in the first round, but also shows how exciting the Raiders could be to work with in 2019 by landing all of this young talent.
If Oakland does decide to roll with offense for their final pick of the round, it only seems fitting to go with a wide receiver to help take some of the pressure off Derek Carr since he’s already feeling the heat at quarterback, and whether he’s the man Jon Gruden wants.
Along with D.K. Metcalf, A.J. Brown was considered one of the biggest winners from the combine after putting on a show, and it will be interesting to see if the Ole Miss wideout has what it takes to sneak into the end of the first round.
With his route-running ability, Brown coming to Oakland could result in the rookie making quite an impact as a rookie since Oakland doesn’t exactly have much going from them at receiver since Amari Cooper is no longer around.
