Raiders go with a linebacker again in fifth

The Oakland Raiders certainly realized a lack of depth at the linebacker position, taking two linebackers in the third and final day of the 2015 NFL Draft.

After taking inside linebacker Ben Heeney in the fourth round, Reggie McKenzie and the Raiders selected linebacker Neiron Ball in the fifth round (161st overall)

Ball is a good athlete with solid strength for his size. He’s versatile, having played outside in a 3-4 and inside

Ball has potential but has a knack for over-thinking while playing, rather than reacting to what is happening on the field.
