2016 NFL Mock Draft: Oakland Raiders Select DT Andrew Billings at No. 14

With the No. 14 pick in the 2016 DBN Community NFL Mock Draft, the Oakland Raiders select...

Andrew Billings, DT, Baylor

The selection and write-up were made by makeaplay59:

While I liked the original mock draft a lot better (which left Ezekiel Elliott and William Jackson III on the board with just a few more picks to go), Andrew Billings has the potential to be a special nose tackle/1 technique that dominates opposing centers.

Looking at needs, the Raiders filled holes at safety (Reggie Nelson replacing the retiring Charles Woodson) and offensive line (signing Kelechi Osemele and re-signing Donald Penn; all the stud tackles were off the board anyways). I would have been tempted to fill a need with cover cornerback William Jackson III or a special weapon that never needs to come off the field in running back Ezekiel Elliott, but those guys were off the board.

This pick is pretty much a best player available selection. It gives the Raiders defense another formidable defensive lineman for opposing offenses to worry about, and supplements Khalil Mack and his 15 sacks in 2015.

The Tennessee Titans are up next, led by aszabo1.
