The Raiders put the finishing touches on the 2016 NFL Draft on Saturday. After it was done, coach Jack Del Rio and general manager Reggie McKenzie discussed the picks.
Reggie McKenzie got some help for Latavius Murray Saturday, and the fifth-round pick compared himself to a former Raiders' running back.
After drafting seven players over the last three days, the Raiders started filling the 19 open roster spots with undrafted free agents.
