N’Keal Harry, WR, Arizona State

Admittedly, this is the one stretch on this list. The names on here are all relatively realistic targets at No. 24, but there’s no consensus on N’Keal Harry at this moment. Some mock drafts have him going as high as No. 3, while I’ve seen him slide all the way towards the end of Day 1 elsewhere.

So for now, let’s just say that the 20-25 range is realistic for the former Arizona State star.

Now we all know about the Raiders’ needs on defense. They’ve been brought up time and time again across the blogosphere, and will continue to be a talking point until April 25. However, with so much draft capital, Gruden can afford to make some offensive upgrades as well.

Harry would be exactly that. And considering the Raiders’ dearth of talent out wide right now, it would make perfect sense for the former Sun Devil to be wearing Silver and Black come September. Trust me when I say that it’s not just his first name that makes Harry a unique prospect, though.

Possessing a rare mix of size, speed and playmaking abilities, he’d be a huge addition to the Oakland offense. Harry would immediately give Carr a physical, reliable target to throw to who can help create more opportunities for other players in the passing game. If he’s still there at No. 24, the Raiders better run to the podium.
