These are the picks I think the Raiders will make next week. Stay tuned for my final 49ers mock draft — it’s coming soon.
Round 1, pick No. 24: Tre’Davious White, CB, LSU. The Raiders’ biggest holes are in their defensive backfield, and White is similar to a cornerback Reggie McKenzie tried to sign in 2016 — Janoris Jenkins.
Round 2, pick No. 56: Zach Cunningham, LB, Vanderbilt. The Raiders need to draft an inside linebacker who can start as a rookie, and I believe they’re targeting Cunningham. Just a hunch.
Round 3, pick No. 88: Julie’n Davenport, OT, Bucknell. Starting left tackle Donald Penn turns 34 next week and will be a free agent in 2018. Davenport can replace him.
Round 4, pick No. 130: Delano Hill, FS, Michigan. Starting free safety Reggie Nelson turns 34 in September and will be a free agent in 2018. Hill can replace him.
Round 5, pick No. 168: Brian Hill, RB, Wyoming. A powerful running back who can play if Marshawn Lynch gets hurts, assuming Lynch comes to the Raiders.
Round 6, pick No. 208: Stevie Tu’ikolovatu, NT, USC. The defense needs a nose tackle after the team released Dan Williams this week.
Round 7, pick No. 242: Damore’ea Stringfellow, WR, Ole Miss. A potential replacement for Michael Crabtree, who looked old in the Raiders’ playoff loss to the Texans.
Round 7, pick No. 244: Johnathan Calvin, OLB, Mississippi St. The Raiders need depth at outside linebacker — Aldon Smith probably won’t come back.
