Scouting Report: Ole Miss' Robert Nkemdiche is one of the most interesting prospects in this year's NFL draft. His talent and frame are worthy of an early selection but he brings some baggage with him. He has never had the production expected out of him, and he was arrested after falling out of a window and police found marijuana in the hotel room.

That said, there's definitely a team out there that will be looking to gamble on him due to his raw talent that is there to coach. He has great explosion for a defensive tackle, and moves and runs like a a defensive end. He plays strong at the point of attack and has good enough lateral movement to play from sideline to sideline. 

The Raiders need athleticism at the defensive tackle position, but it could be a gamble to take a player with Nkemdiche's character issues. That said, Reggie McKenzie and the Raiders have done a solid job building a good locker room that may be able to handle him.
