Raiders Rumors: Leonard Williams A No-Go For Oakland In The Draft?

The Oakland Raiders will have plenty of options to choose from if they decide to stand pat and pick #4 in the 2015 NFL Draft, and one of those options could be coveted USC Trojans pass rusher Leonard Williams.

While some have speculated that the Raiders would bypass the USC defensive lineman if Alabama WR Amari Cooper is still around, ESPN's Bill Williamson thinks the Raiders would do "backflips" if Williams falls to #4:

I think Oakland would do backflips if Williams fell to them at No. 4. While anything can happen on draft night, I’d be completely shocked if Williams is bypassed by Oakland if he is on the board at No. 4. I have gotten the sense Oakland is extremely high on Williams and he is the player the Raiders most covet.

The Raiders are in need of wide receiving help, but there is enough depth at wideout in this draft for the Raiders to pass on Amari Cooper (or Kevin White) and hitch their wagon to Leonard Williams.
