Although recent years haven’t seen them competing for championships with anything near regularity, but the Raiders are a team that just makes the NFL better and more interesting when they’re good.
The Raiders are looking to get help on their defense in the 2021 NFL draft as they allowed the third-most points of anyone in the league last season, 29.9 per game to be exact.
Could that first-round pick end up being Notre Dame star Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah?
If it is, he’d be the ninth Notre Dame player to ever be drafted by the Raiders franchise. Here are the first eight to do so:
1961 Myron Pottios, LB: 3rd round, 21st overall (AFL)
1964 George Bednar, OL: 3rd round, 23rd overall (AFL)
1974 Dave Casper, TE: 2nd round, 45th overall
1975 Steve Sylvester, C: 10th round, 259th overall
1984 Stacey Toran, DB: 6th round, 168th overall
1987 Steve Beuerlein, QB: 4th round, 110th overall
1988 Tim Brown, WR: 1st round, 6th overall
1991 Raghib Ismail, WR: 4th round, 100th overall
