NFL Draft rumors: Raiders targeting Taylor Lewan at No. 5

The Oakland Raiders would benefit from improving their roster in a number of different areas, but the latest buzz seems to indicate they are zeroing in on offensive line. The Raiders are interested in drafting an offensive tackle with the No. 5 overall pick, but it isn’t who you would predict.

It is widely believed that Greg Robinson and Jake Matthews are the top two offensive tackles available, but the Raiders are reportedly interested in Taylor Lewan.

The report comes from Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune.

Last year, the team went against conventional wisdom by selecting cornerback D.J. Hayden just outside of the top ten, so the team has proved that they are not shy about sticking with their draft board.
