Selection Analysis - Pick #19

NFL Draft Selections

April 25, 2020

Las Vegas
Damon Arnette

Ohio State


The Raiders needed to grab a starter at WR and CB, and... I'm pretty sure they failed. Taking the 75th player on our board at #19, the Raiders added a corner who mustered a 4.56 at the Combine as the guy they want to line up opposite Trayvon Mullen. Much like Clelin Ferrell, it's clear the Raiders loved Arnette and were willing to reach, despite the consensus that he was a fringe top-10 corner. With Trevon Diggs, Kristian Fulton, Jaylon Johnson, and Noah Igbinoghene all still on the board, I don't know how you justify this pick --even if you loved the Buckeye-- without getting something in a trade-down. Maybe Arnette will surprise once he gets on the field, but, from a value perspective, this is the worst pick thus far in the draft, and it isn't even close.

Grade: D-
