Raiders draft 2021: A look at notable college football opt outs

In our podcast this week, we discussed whether the Las Vegas Raiders will be among the teams that ultimately decide to stay away from drafting players who opted out of the 2020 NCAA season due to the coronavirus pandemic.

There has been a lot of speculation that some teams may feel that players who opted out may not love football. Of course, Raiders coach Jon Gruden and general manager Mike Mayock often say they are attracted to players who love football. So, you have to wonder if the Raiders will be among the teams not to be high on players who opted out, whether it’s fair or not.
