Raiders acquire WR Martavis Bryant in trade with Steelers

The Raiders added a speedy playmaker on the first day of the NFL Draft and he isn't a rookie. 

Oakland acquired wide receiver Martavis Bryant from Pittsburgh for the No. 79 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. The No. 79 pick was acquired in the Raiders' trade with the Cardinals that sent Oakland the No. 15 pick and also No. 152 overall pick for No. 10.

Bryant played in 15 games last season and caught 50 passes for 603 yards and three touchdowns. Over his three-year career, Bryant has hauled in 126 receptions for 1,917 yards and 17 touchdowns. He missed the entire 2016 season due to suspension.

Raiders select OT Kolton Miller with No. 15 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft

KOLTON MILLER
Position: Offensive tackle
College: UCLA
Height: 6-foot-9
Weight: 309 pounds
Selection: First round (No. 15 overall)
Scouting report: The former Bruin’s built like an NFL offensive tackle, with the agility and length to be a top-tier player. Analysts say he’s a hard worker who puts maximum effort into every snap. He has solid footwork already, with the agility to handle savvy pass rushers. He didn’t have a great year in 2017, but fared well during the pre-draft process. The Raiders like this prospect, especially offensive line coach Tom Cable. He needs to improve work with his hands, and is sometimes susceptible to power rushers.
Projected role: The Raiders need help in the present and future. He should compete to start at right tackle as a rookie, with a long-term move to the left. Current blindside protector Donald Penn is 35 years old, coming off of Lisfranc foot surgery this offseason. He’s under contract through 2019, though he doesn’t have guaranteed money in that final year. Miller will compete with veteran Breno Giacomini to start on the right side in 2018, which would help the offensive line’s weakest point. The move makes strong fiscal sense, assuming Miller can man a left tackle spot that pays veterans a premium.
