The Raiders had their pick in the best crop of receivers, taking burner Henry Ruggs from Alabama. In a draft filled with receivers, Ruggs was regarded as the speediest of the class and the Raiders finally have someone to stretch the field and give Derek Carr a deadly weapon on the outside.
Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock channeled their inner Al Davis by picking Ruggs and somewhere his spirit is smiling at the track meets that will happen in Las Vegas. And yes, Ruggs was in a bathrobe when he was picked.
Ruggs will be deadly weapon in the Raiders arsenal. With Josh Jacobs and Darren Waller, Ruggs will easily headline a receiving corps that includes Tyrell Williams, Hunter Renfrow and Zay Jones. Look for the speedster to have fantasy value as a WR4, Flex play in 12-team leagues.
