With their fourth selection in the 2022 NFL Draft, the Las Vegas Raiders have picked defensive tackle Matthew Butler from Tennessee at No. 175.

Butler was frequently mocked to the Raiders early in the draft process in the third or fourth round. He is a disruptive defensive tackle who can play right away in the rotation. This is a massive value for the Raiders at this stage of the draft.

Butler did not miss a game over the last three seasons and has shown the ability to play multiple positions. Look for both Butler and Neil Farrell to get playing time as rookies for the Raiders.
