DB Conley, accused of rape, taken by Raiders

Gareon Conley, the ex-Ohio State cornerback accused of rape earlier this week, was picked 24th overall by the Raiders on Thursday night.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Gareon Conley's ball skills at cornerback could be a good addition for a Raiders pass defense that allowed an NFL-high 61 completions of at least 20 yards.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

The Raiders have drafted Ohio State CB Gareon Conley with the No. 24 overall selection of the 2017 NFL draft. Conley has been accused of sexual assault.

The New York Giants have selected Mississippi TE Evan Engram. The Raiders are on the clock now. They could go defensive line with Michigan State DT Malik McDowell, linebacker with Alabama ILB Reuben Foster or Vanderbilt ILB Zach Cunningham or cornerback with Washington's Kevin King. They have needs on defense, obviously.

NFL draft notes: Clock is ticking...

One rating of one player that leads to one pick can help determine a franchise's fate for years. Just ask the Oakland Raiders, who have finally righted their ship after more than a decade of futility.

Which player will the Raiders take at No. 24? Here are the final projected picks from Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay, plus the players Louis Riddick and NFL Nation would select: Kiper/McShay/Riddick – Kevin King, CB, Washington; NFL Nation – Zach Cunningham, ILB, Vanderbilt

So, yeah, Marshawn Lynch has No. 24, as seen in this screen grab from Raiders.com. Paging Charles Woodson and Willie Brown.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Raiders struggled to contain big plays last season in the passing game. Look for them to address the back end of their defense early and often in this week's draft.

So, um, Marshawn Lynch wore his new Raiders helmet as he left the team compound on Wednesday, as seen on Raiders.com, after being acquired in a trade from Seattle. And coming out of retirement, too.
