Raiders select UCLA OT Kolton Miller with No. 15 overall pick

That is to say, Miller will leave his feet behind and try to reach a defender taking a looping path to the backfield. About half of the reviews advised that he wasn't a potential first or second round pick and should return to school.

If he can work on getting lower, and playing smaller than his 6-foot-9 frame, he should have no problem adjusting to the National Football League game.

While Reggie McKenzie remained as general manager and was involved heavily in draft preparation, Gruden is the man who now has the final word on picks for Oakland. You talk about getting to the second level and pulling.

The Raiders could be a candidate to move down this year, especially if there's a quarterback on the board desired by a team picking later in the first round. Parker and Miller could be the future left tackle, while both will battle it out for the starting right tackle position.

It hasn't worked out as well the past two years when the Raiders haven't added any impact players, with last year's top two picks, cornerback Gareon Conley and safety Obi Melifonwu, barely even getting on the field as rookies because of injuries.

Lasley was ESPN's 14th-best available receiver after the first round.

R.J. White: A 247Sports four-star recruit out of Roseville, Calif., Miller redshirted in 2014 before making five starts in his freshman season. But NFL.com and CBS had other projections with Lasley tumbling to the seventh round. He would have easily led the country in receiving yards per game, but was not eligible for any individual leaderboards because he did not participate in 75 percent of UCLA's games. Arizona selected Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA.
