​Do not be surprised if ​Clelin Ferrell ends up being the most complete defensive end in this draft class, making this selection by the Raiders a huge win, yet a total stunner at No. 4.


He may not have the elite speed that'll lead to huge sack numbers, but he has the size, strength and length to be an instant starter as a 4-3 defensive end, which Oakland could certainly use.


It didn't always come easy for Ferrell, as he tore his ACL his senior year of high school and was redshirted as a freshman after suffering a hand injury, but he had 27 sacks over over his last three years at Clemson, including 12.5 sacks his junior year.

​​Ferrell played alongside NFL talent his entire career at Clemson, so he was overshadowed a bit, and that can be concerning for some teams. But watch this guy play and you see a player who has the tools to be a force at the highest level.


Hopefully, Oakland uses their next few first-rounders in more conventional fashion.
