This would so be the kind of pick Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden would want.
The Raiders offense has struggled on the outside for most of Gruden’s still-brief tenure, and the team is still looking for an excellent replacement for wide receiver Amari Cooper, whose 2018 trade to the Dallas Cowboys has yet to yield a solid replacement.
Yet if Gruden was able to land Oklahoma wide receiver CeeDee Lamb, much of that could easily change.
At 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds, Lamb is one of the more enticing offensive playmakers in this year’s NFL Draft. He needs to work on his route running, yes. But Lamb’s physical traits alone make him a target Gruden would want for a rebuilding offense.
