Rumor: Bradley Chubb could be a trade-up target for Raiders

After selecting Hurst in the fifth round, the Raiders went with Florida punter Johnny Townsend in the fifth round (173rd).

Hurst was graded a unanimous first round prospect by nearly everyone with an opinion about the NFL Draft, and rightly so.

Gruden said he believes last year's Raiders team suffered from not having a third edge rusher who could back up Mack and Irvin. "I'm ready to go right now, so just show up to rookie mini-camp just like everyone else and just go through things as everyone else would".

Michigan Wolverines defensive lineman Maurice Hurst (73) receives congratulations from defensive lineman Chase Winovich (15) after he sacked Rutgers Scarlet Knights quarterback Giovanni Rescigno (not pictured) in the first half at Michigan Stadium. ESPN's Todd McShay reported a few days before the draft that "several teams" removed Hurst from their boards altogether.

Could John Elway and company take a risk on another Wolverine on day three of the draft in MI defensive tackle Maurice Hurst? "Everybody knows, talent-wise, if we're just talking talent, top-five pick". Hurst told reporters in March that he first learned about the condition when he arrived as a MI freshman in 2013.

But Hurst revealed shortly after the combine that the EKG irregularities weren't new to him, telling the Detroit Free Press that an EKG shortly after he arrived on campus at MI showed a heart issue, though he declined to specify what it is.

So when he was sent home from the NFL Combine in March, Hurst set out to quell the concerns and get cleared.

"That I'm not the guy that the media portrays me to be", Key said Friday night after the Raiders selected the former LSU defensive end in the third round of the draft, 87th overall.

'Well, I don't really hear all the skeptics, ' Gruden said, via The Mercury News.

The risk attached to Hurst is different.

I would put him at nose tackle.

Both Hall (who was not invited to the National Football League combine) and Parker come from FCS programs.

2014: Played in 10 of 14 games. played vs. Hawai'i and Eastern Washington, but then missed three games. returned at California, where he made one tackle. also played at Oregon, vs. ASU and at Arizona. had a tackle in the UCLA game and against Oregon State. had two big special teams tackles in the Apple Cup win at Washington State.

So his slide is clearly not because of his ability on the field.

"I was a little surprised just because I was cleared through Harvard and MI, but every team can't bring you in and do their own tests and formalize their own opinion".
