Selection: Seventh round, No. 231 overall
The Raiders have drafted two offensive players this year. Both have them play offensive tackle. The first came when David Sharpe was selected in the fourth round. The second came in the seventh, when they took skyscraper Jylan Ware, a 6-foot-8 big man who will join a loaded offensive front.
This small school talent has flown under the radar, though he’s an agile player who can stay with defenders. He’s also lighter than many linemen shorter than him, and needs to add bulk to keep up with strong defenders.
He’s a player who might be best served to develop and add strength with a year on the practice squad, especially on a team loaded with bodies and talent at offensive tackle.
MIAMI – Injury reports can be lengthy even in the early going. This one advancing Sunday’s clash between the Raiders and Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium is the opposite.
Only three are considered questionable or worse, leaving most impact players available for this Week 3 contest.
Raiders defensive tackle P.J. Hall was ruled out for the second straight game with a sprained ankle. He wasn’t expected to play this game, though head coach Jon Gruden is crossing fingers he can return soon.
“He’s working hard to get it right,” he said Friday. “Hopefully he can return next week. We miss him.”
Nick Nelson showed up on the participation report on Thursday with a hamstring injury limited his workload, though he has been inactive thus far regardless of health.
The Dolphins listed starting safety as questionable with a shoulder injury. He has 10 tackles, two interceptions and two passes defensed already, so losing him would be a blow to Miami’s secondary.

CB Nick Nelson (hamstring)
S Reshad Jones (shoulder)
The Raiders (0-2) are still seeking their first win of the 2018 season Sunday when they play the undefeated Dolphins (2-0) at Hard Rock Stadium.
Is this the week that Jon Gruden gets back in the win column? Will Derek Carr outplay Ryan Tannehill? How many times will Marshawn Lynch turn into Beast Mode?
We'll find out the answers to those questions and more soon enough.
