6. Oakland Raiders
Star Lotulelei - DT

University of Utah
The Raiders sure do luck out. Nose tackle is the biggest need in Oakland and Lotulelei isn't only the best player available with this pick, he's the best player in the entire draft. At 6'4", 320 Lotulelei has amazing movement skills and appears to be a future All-Pro in the NFL. He has the feet, quickness, and power that will remind people of Haloti Ngata. The Raiders really don't have a legitimate nose tackle on their roster so finding Star here at six is a real steal for them. Oakland could also look at taking a quarterback with this pick since Carson Palmer is getting up there in age and the team could use an heir to the throne.
