Raiders select DB Shalom Luani in seventh round of 2017 NFL Draft

Raiders select DB Shalom Luani in seventh round of 2017 NFL Draft

SHALOM LUANI
Position: Safety
College: Washington State
Height: 5-foot-11
Weight: 202
Selection: Seventh round, No. 221 overall

The Raiders continued adding to their secondary in the NFL draft, selecting their third defensive back in six selections. They’ve added Washington State alum Shalom Luani, a safety by trade who will be expected to contribute heavily on special teams should be make the regular-season squad.

Analysts say he’s a quality cover man who can read quarterbacks well. He excels in zone coverage and can make plays on the football.

His big problem, it seems, is consistent tackling. His NFL.com draft profile states Luani missed 31 tackles and allowed 11 more broken tackles in two seasons. He’s an aggressive player who sometimes takes improper routes on deep passes especially.

Raiders coaches consistently preach fundamentals, and will try and help him as a tackler. He’ll have to carve a role in the kicking game while developing as a defensive player.

This marks the fifth defensive player general manager Reggie McKenzie has taken in six picks.
