ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Raiders could turn their attention to pass rusher on day two of the NFL draft.
After taking receiver Amari Cooper with their first-round pick, the Raiders head into Friday with the third pick in the second round and the fourth pick in round three.
Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie would like to add a pass rusher if possible in the next two rounds. Oakland also has needs at guard and safety that could be filled on the second day of the draft.
Oakland finished tied with the second fewest sacks in the NFL last season with 22. The Raiders also have a hole at right guard after moving Austin Howard to tackle.
