The Raiders look to continue reaping the rewards from trading off All-Pro EDGE Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears in 2018, getting this NFL Draft pick in yet another attempt to revamp what is still a questionable defense.
And while Mack’s departure hasn’t come anywhere close to being alleviated, taking a shot at a top-tier LSU defensive back is rarely a bad choice to make.
Especially when Oakland just dished out cornerback Gareon Conley, a former first-round NFL Draft pick, to the Houston Texans.
With a big hole at corner now, the 6-foot-1, 192-pound Kristian Fulton will look to fill the void. He has excellent man-coverage skills, with quick-twitch speed and reaction skills.
Those will be necessary to match up with what teams like the Chiefs are able to do in the AFC West.
