Hurst, a former MI defensive tackle whom Oakland picked at No. 150 overall, slid way down the draft board after a heart condition forced him to leave the NFL Scouting Combine early.

The 2018 NFL Draft is over, and the Oakland Raiders earned some interesting grades for their efforts.

On Saturday, the Raiders chose to take a chance on MI defensive tackle who has first-round talent but also has a heart condition, which is why he was still on the board Saturday afternoon.

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie doubled down on that.

"I was a little down about it for like a day or two, but after that I felt like it helped me that I didn't come to the combine", Hall said. I think he's got a chance to be a really good player. "I'm very excited to be a part of the Raiders organization".

Without the health concerns, Hurst likely would have been a first round pick.

At the NFL Scouting Combine in March, Hurst was sent home after an irregular electrocardiogram was uncovered.

On Friday, they traded up in the third round for former Louisiana State defensive end Arden Key. However Harvard doctors cleared Hurst and appeared to be confident heading into draft weekend. "But we've got no doubts about you, got me?" He tweeted Friday night after going unselected in rounds 2 and 3 he was "just waiting for the right place", and he may be going to a flawless situation, joining a team that is loaded in the front seven.

Darvish tosses six stellar innings as Cubs win
Bryant hasn't played since he was hit in the face with a 96 miles per hour fastball from the Rockies' German Marquez on Sunday. Quintana, meanwhile, hasn't been sharp but did strike out six in a six-inning shutout against the Brewers three starts ago.


One day after trading back in the first round and making another deal to acquire veteran wide receiver Martavis Bryant, the Oakland Raiders remained one of the NFL's most active teams in the draft Friday night with a series of trades. The team will keep monitoring him but he now has no limitations.

Hurst was an All-American and one of the most productive defensive players in the country last season. He was named Pro Football Focus' top-rated defensive player, regardless of position, for the entire 2017 season. "The one thing that this staff has, they have a vision".

Key, though, fell into the third round and into the Raiders' lap because of off-the-field issues that clouded his past year. Is that joining up with guys like Khalil Mack and Bruce Irvin? He finished his college career with 32.5 tackles for losses, including 12.5 sacks.

The Raiders started the day Saturday by taking Wisconsin cornerback Nick Nelson with the 110th overall pick.

His junior season previous year fell flat compared to that 2016 campaign. The Raiders released punter Marquette King in late March.

Townsend led the country in punting average at 47.5 yards per attempt last fall, including 27 punts of at least 50 yards and six of at least 60 yards.
