NFL Draft 2019: Clelin Ferrell to Raiders at No. 4 Overall Shocks Many

The Mike Mayock era started with a bit of a surprise on Thursday night in the 2019 NFL Draft. 

In the first draft with general manager Mayock and coach Jon Gruden at the helm for the Raiders, they selected defensive end Clelin Ferrell with the No. 4 overall pick in the draft. Though Ferrell was an All-American at Clemson as a junior where he recorded 11.5 sacks last season, many expected him to go later in the draft. 

Some teams even had a second-round grade on Ferrell, NFL Media's Tom Pelissero reported. 

To say they least, plenty of people were a shocked to hear Ferrell's name called this high in the draft.
