After selecting Henry Ruggs III with the No. 12 overall pick, the Las Vegas Raiders went defense with the No. 19 pick, selecting cornerback Damon Arnette out of Ohio State.
Every year there’s a surprise in the first round and this year, Las Vegas Raiders General Manager Mike Mayock wanted to catch everyone by surprise.
After selecting Henry Ruggs III with the No. 12 overall pick, the Silver and Black went defense with the No. 19 pick, selecting cornerback Damon Arnette out of Ohio State. For a lot of people this was a shock, but there are individuals who think he’s a steal, including a member of the division-rival Denver Broncos.
Arnette originally wanted to enter the 2019 NFL Draft, but after consulting with his coaches at Ohio State and a conversation with NFL Hall of Famer Cris Carter, he decided to remain as a Buckeye for one more season.
