Joey Bosa dominated college football this past year and would've definitely been a top-five pick in the 2015 class had he been draft-eligible. He wasn't, so the Raiders would strongly consider him at No. 2 overall, as he could provide a big boost to their porous defense. Unlike Leonard Williams this year, Bosa will likely be viewed as the top consensus prospect in the draft. Oakland passed on Williams, but perhaps that won't be the case with Bosa.

The Raiders are fine now at left tackle with Donald Penn stationed there at the moment. However, Penn is entering his contract year, and given that he'll turn 33 prior to the 2016 season, Oakland may want to find a long-term blind-side protector.
The Raiders got Derek Carr a No. 1 receiver in the 2015 NFL Draft, but they had to pass on what many considered the top defender, Leonard Williams. Sources with Oakland said that left tackle Donald Penn had perhaps the best year of his career last season, but the team did a lot of scheming to help him. With a new system and Penn aging, getting the Raiders a long-term left tackle for Carr makes sense.
Tunsil has a ton of natural talent to be a blind-side protector. He was dominant in 2014 and arguably the best left tackle in the nation. Not only does Tunsil shut down pass-rushers, he gets movement in the ground game. Tunsil (6-5, 305) was one of the top recruits in the nation coming out of high school. As a freshman, he validated the hype when he broke into the starting lineup and became an All-SEC Second-Team selection by the AP. The conference's coaches had him as an All-Freshman performer, and he was also named a Freshman All-American according to many media outlets.

Robert Nkemdiche, DE/3-4DE, Ole Miss
The Raiders could use a disruptor on their defensive line and a pass-rusher to go on the other side from Khalil Mack. Nkemdiche hasn't been a productive pass-rusher in college, but he is disruptive.
Nkemdiche was considered to be the No. 1 player in the nation in the 2013 recruiting class. As a freshman, he totaled 34 tackles with two sacks and eight tackles for a loss. The 6-foot-4, 280-pounder has tons of physical talent with speed and athleticism. He could grow into a defensive tackle. In 2014, Nkemdiche recorded 35 tackles with two sacks. He flashed, but lacked consistency. Perhaps that will come as a junior.
