Oakland Raiders' 4th Round Picks

The Oakland Raiders have made two more selections here in the fourth round. They started with DT Justin Ellis, Louisiana Tech, who had his best season as a senior rackings up 48 tackles and 5.5 tackles for loss, and is very good at getting penetration.  However, he has had some weight issues. The potential is there, according to Vic Tafur.

It’s hard to be unhappy about who he idolizes either, and that is a good sign.

Their second pick of the round, CB Keith McGill out of Utah, has had some off-field issues which ultimately led to his fall in the draft. The 6’3″ McGill was moved to corner while at Utah, but can play safety as well. However, many think he will stay as a corner.

The Oakland Raiders continue to add depth in needed areas, and I look for this to continue into the next round. Both of these picks do come with some risks, however, especially with McGill. Still, he has second to third-round grades, so taking him in the fourth is an fantastic value selection for the Silver and Black.
