Raiders se­lect Clem­son’s Fer­rell with No. 4 pick

The Tribune (SLO) - - News | Classifieds -

The Oak­land Raiders used the fourth pick in the draft on Clem­son de­fen­sive end Clelin Fer­rell in hopes of find­ing the edge rusher to re­place Khalil Mack.

Coach Jon Gru­den and first-year gen­eral man­ager Mike May­ock passed up pass rush­ers rated higher by most an­a­lysts like Ken­tucky’s Josh Allen and Hous­ton’s Ed Oliver to se­lect Fer­rell on Thurs­day.

Fer­rell had 111⁄2 sacks last sea­son and fin­ished with 27 sacks in 84 ca­reer games. The Raiders have two more first-round picks: No. 24 thanks to last sea­son’s Mack trade to Chicago and the 27th pick af­ter trad­ing re­ceiver Amari Cooper to Dal­las.
