#7 out of 357 overall
#1 at DT
Raji is a big, physical lineman who commands a lot of attention. He's a good athlete who has a solid burst off the line, plays with leverage, and bull rushes opponents up the field. He has a quick first step, immediately penetrates upfield and makes plays in the backfield. He displays great strength and has an advantage against the opposition with his initial push.

|Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis||This is an interesting selection considering all the negative rumors surrounding the talented defensive lineman. Still, the Packers had a major need for a nose tackle since they have transitioned to a 3-4 scheme on defense. Raji had a great Senior Bowl week and those practices and his performance during the game pushed up his value in the minds of many scouts.|
