Las Vegas Raiders draft picks 2021: Round-by-round selections

View Comments

Here is a 2021 NFL draft pick-by-pick breakdown for the Las Vegas Raiders:

Round 1 (No. 17 overall) - Alex Leatherwood, OT, Alabama: Maybe a bit of a reach this early, Leatherwood will certainly fill a need for Vegas after GM Mike Mayock traded 60% of his starting offensive line in March. The 2020 Outland Trophy winner could plug in at guard or right tackle after playing inside and outside for 'Bama. Draft tracker

Round 2 (43, from 49ers) - Trevon Moehrig, S, TCU: Last year's Jim Thorpe Award winner, Moehrig has nice range, plays with good instincts, can cover and is willing to come up and make a hit. He should nicely complement 2019 first-round S Johnathan Abram, who's more of a thumper in the box. Draft tracker

Round 3 (79, from Cardinals) - Malcolm Koonce, DE, Buffalo: And the Silver and Black go back to Buffalo seven years after drafting Khalil Mack. Koonce, who had 13 sacks over the past two years, is a needed pressure player for a team that must combat Mahomes and Justin Herbert twice a year. Draft tracker

Round 3 (80) - Divine Deablo, S, Virginia Tech: A former receiver who's 6-3 and 226 pounds, expect him to take on a rover role in the NFL, where he'll likely be a safety/linebacker hybrid. Draft tracker

Round 4 (143, from Vikings through Jets, compensatory) - Tyree Gillespie, S, Missouri

Round 5 (167, from Seahawks) - Nate Hobbs, CB, Illinois

Round 7 (230, from Jets through 49ers) - Jimmy Morrissey, C, Pittsburgh
