Raiders second-rounder Obi Melifonwu said he was not expecting the Raiders to call him since he had only met with them at the combine. "The fact that you guys got Marshawn Lynch," Melifonwu said on a conference call with reporters, "that was the icing on the cake." He said he models his game after that of Kam Chancellor.

The Raiders have selected UCLA DT Eddie Vanderdoes with the No. 88 overall pick of the 2017 NFL draft. The 6-foot-3, 305-pounder missed nearly the entire 2015 season with a torn ACL but started 12 games for the Bruins last fall, finishing with 28 stops, 1.5 behind the line of scrimmage.

The New York Giants have selected QB Davis Webb. The Raiders are on the clock now for the No. 88 overall selection. They still have needs on the defensive line and at inside linebacker.

Safety Obi Melifonwu has the range and movement skills to play the deep half or drop to the deep middle of the field. He looked smooth at Senior Bowl workouts. Melifonwu is not a true striker on contact, but his size and athletic ability is super rare. 6-foot-4, 224 pounds with 4.40 speed. Lot of upside here with the Raiders draft pick.
