2015 Draft: Day 2

Second Round: Mario Edwards, Jr. DE Florida State
Third Round: Clive Walford TE Miami

The story on Edwards is a common one — highly touted prospect who underachieved in college, struggled with maintaining weight. May be something of a reach to pick in 2nd round, but worked with new Raiders linebackers coach Sal Sunseri, so apparently the coaching staff feel they can work out the kinks and get him to play to potential.

Walford is one of the highest-rated tight ends in this year’s draft. It’s fair to ask why, with so many holes around the team that need to be filled, the Raiders would go for a TE in the third round.
