Day One of the 2018 NFL Draft was a wild one, and it’s possible we see more of the same on Day Two.
Originally slated to pick with the No. 10 overall pick, the Oakland Raiders traded with the Arizona Cardinals, moving back to the No. 15 slot, and gained a third-round pick (used to trade for wide receiver Martavis Bryant) as well as a fifth rounder. With the No. 15 pick, the Silver and Black drafted offensive tackle Kolton Miller from UCLA, and he’ll be able to learn from some of the best offensive linemen in the business.
The first round of the draft saw plenty of trades, and surprising picks – shout out to my guy Baker Mayfield going first overall. It’ll be interesting to see if today is a repeat of Thursday. Before Day Two of the draft gets underway, however, let’s take a look at some of the best available prospects still on the board, according to NFL.com’s Gil Brandt
Will Hernandez, OG, University of Texas-El Paso
**Josh Jackson, CB, University of Iowa
The Raiders trade their third-round pick to the Pittsburgh Steelers for wide receiver Martavis Bryant.
The former Hawkeye has been highly regarded as one of the best corners in the draft, if he slips to the Raiders at No. 41 he’d be a nice pickup.
Derrius Guice, RB, LSU
Earlier this year at the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine, Guice referred to himself as “Beast Mode,” noting that he’s admired Marshawn Lynch for some time now.
Courtland Sutton, WR, SMU
Harold Landry, EDGE, Boston College
Christian Kirk, WR, Texas A&M
Nick Chubb, RB, University of Georgia
