The Raiders have selected Mississippi State safety Jonathan Abram with the No. 27 overall pick, addressing a need in the secondary. Abram, who played his freshman season at Georgia, had five sacks and two interceptions in two seasons at Mississippi State. He is a hard hitter who played 17 of his 38 snaps as a primary defender while lined up in the slot, and his 36 percent pressure percentage was highest in FBS among players with at least 50 pass rushes.
