The Raiders have selected Washington State DB Shalom Luani with the first of their four seventh-round picks, No. 221 overall. The Raiders had the 24th-ranked pass defense in the league last year and need depth in the secondary. The former soccer player had eight interceptions in two years at Wazzou but his tackling was suspect.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome on whether the team administered a polygraph test to Ohio State cornerback Gareon Conley: "What I would say, a representative of the Ravens suggested to the representative of Conley, had they considered having a polygraph test. That was the extent of it." Conley, who was later drafted by the Raiders in the first round, was accused by a woman of raping her in a Cleveland hotel earlier this month.

Marquel Lee is the first player from Wake Forest drafted since CB Kevin Johnson went 16th overall in 2015. Plus, the Raiders have drafted five linebackers since selecting OLB/DE Khalil Mack at No. 5 in 2014, with all five coming in the fifth or sixth round, per ESPN Stats & Information.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

Marquel Lee said the Raiders approached him at the combine after he put up 25 reps in the 225-pound bench press. A foot injury kept him from running at the combine, though he clocked a 4.69/4.70 time in the 40 at his pro day.

Raiders fifth-rounder Marquel Lee said GM Reggie McKenzie told him he will compete for a starting gig at linebacker, and Lee played mostly MLB in a 4-2-5 defense at Wake Forest.

Clark County commissioner Steve Sisolak announces the Raiders' fifth round draft pick, Wake Forest linebacker Marquel Lee, from the "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Marquel Lee earned All-ACC honors in 2016 after finishing top-15 nationally in tackles for loss (20). His 25 reps on the bench press at the combine were second-most among linebackers.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

The Raiders select Wake Forest linebacker Marquel Lee with their fifth-round draft pick, No. 168 overall. Lee, a 6-foot-3, 240-pounder, addresses the Raiders' need at inside linebacker as he had 20 tackles for a loss among his 105 tackles last fall for the Demon Deacons. Not likely a starter, he could compete with the likes of Ben Heeney or learn from Perry Riley, Jr., should the Raiders re-sign him.
