2019 NFL draft: Biggest surprises of the 1st round

Draft Wire Logo By Justin Melo of Draft Wire | Slide 1 of 12: There's no doubt that the Raiders needed to address their anemic pass rush with this pick. With both Josh Allen and Ed Oliver still available, many felt they would go in one of those two directions. Instead, we got our first surprise of the night when commissioner Goodell stepped up the podium and announced that the Raiders were taking Ferrell, an edge rusher out of Clemson.Ferrell is a really good player, but we're not sure we saw a single mock draft or big board that ranked him ahead of Oliver or Allen throughout this process. This seems to be at least 10 picks too early for Ferrell. If things don't work out, Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock will certainly have to answer for this decision. (Photo by Thearon W.
