Reviewing Raiders’ 2021 NFL Draft Haul

The Only Nation Podcast crew comes together to review the latest Las Vegas Raiders news and take a close look at their draft haul.

Listen to “Ep 56 – 2021 Draft Roundup” on Spreaker.

Looking back at recent news

In this episode, Homer, Heidi, and T3RaiderFax join forces to cover current Raiders news and examine this year’s draft crop. We start off by looking at the group of undrafted free agents signed after the draft came to an end. Among the highlights are defensive tackle/defensive end Darius Stills out of West Virginia, and wide receiver Dillon Stoner from Oklahoma State.

We then discuss the signing of cornerback Casey Hayward who comes to Las Vegas after a successful career with the Los Angeles Chargers. As a result of several defensive backfield moves, veteran safety Jeff Heath was released from the team. He was released quickly, giving him a chance to hook on with another team.

Revisiting the draft for the Raiders

The draft is on the docket next. We talk about the controversial selection of Alabama offensive tackle Alex Leatherwood as the Raiders’ first pick. A huge bright spot in the selection process was the second-round selection of safety Trevon Moehrig. Next, we talk about the double third-round picks of defensive end Malcolm Koonce and safety/linebacker Divine Deablo. We go down the list discussing defensive backs Tyree Gillespie and Nate Hobbs. Rounding out the draft coverage is a look at former Pittsburgh center Jimmy Morrissey.

Final wrap up

Moving on, a reader’s question spurs a deep dive into what has been wrong with the Raiders’ defense for the past two decades. Finally, we wrap up the episode with another Heidi’s High Five and a quiz about the current roster.
