AFC West: best and worst draft picks for every team in the division

4 of 5

Oakland Raiders

Best Pick: Clive Walford, Tight End, Miami

Personally, I loved the Amari Cooper pick, but passing on Leonard Williams is a hard pill to swallow.

In terms of value, Walford may provide the most bang for the buck, though. He’s an athletic target who doubles as a walking mismatch, and he showed signs of progress as a blocker.

Tight end Mychal Rivera became one of Derek Carr’s favorite receivers last year, so you can expect the Raiders to employ plenty of two-tight end sets in 2015.

Worst Pick: Mario Edwards, Jr., Defensive Tackle, Florida State

A number of analysts were baffled by Edwards’ selection, including NFL Network’s Mike Mayock, who noted:

"Edwards was a polarizing conversation in draft circles this year. He was 272 (pounds) at his pro day but 310 in August. Do you get him when he’s sloppy or in shape? When he’s 310, he looked more like a three-technique. At his pro day, he was 272 and in the best shape of his life. Now the question is, what do you get (weight-wise)?"

Because if there’s one franchise that screams “discipline,” it’s Oakland.
