35. Oakland Raiders: Michael Bennett, DT (Ohio State)
Last year the Raiders selected Khalil Mack to begin rebuilding their front 7. This year they continue these efforts by drafting defensive tackle Michael Bennett.
Bennett is a big and explosive 6’2″ 293 pound defensive tackle that does not take no for an answer. In 2014 Bennett had 35 tackles and six sacks. In 2013 he had 44 tackles and 7.5 sacks. He is able to get inside of guards and centers with his quickness and penetrate his gap, making plays in the backfield regularly.
Bennett arguably has 1st Round talent and therefore is a tremendous value pick at the 35th slot. The Raiders are having a good time so far in this mock draft.
