Here are the Raiders picks so far through the first three rounds of the draft: 1. Gareon Conley, CB, Ohio State; 2. Obi Melifonwu, S, Connecticut; 3. Eddie Vanderdoes, DT, UCLA.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

The Raiders have selected UCLA DT Eddie Vanderdoes with the No. 88 overall pick of the 2017 NFL draft. The 6-foot-3, 305-pounder missed nearly the entire 2015 season with a torn ACL but started 12 games for the Bruins last fall, finishing with 28 stops, 1.5 behind the line of scrimmage.

Raiders get a run stuffer in Eddie Vanderdoes

The UCLA DT projects as a run stopper who won't make much of an impact rushing the passer.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Redskins third-round pick, corner Fabian Moreau, fits exactly what the team wants at corner: a physical player with speed. He can play press coverage, something they want to do more. The question is when he'll be able to play thanks to his torn pec suffered on March 22. Moreau said it's a five-month recovery process, which puts his timetable at late August.

Redskins add Fabian Moreau to secondary

The UCLA DB, drafted at No. 81, gives Washington a strong press corner who is solid in run support.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

The Redskins selected CB Fabian Moreau with the 81st pick in the draft. He tore his pectoral muscle at his pro day earlier this spring and might not be ready until the start of the season. But he has good speed and length and gives the Redskins flexibility with corner Bashaud Breeland entering a contract year.

Falcons now have a third-round pick, a fourth-round pick, and three fifth-round picks after a trade with the Bills. Falcons can address more areas after entering the day with just three picks left after trade with the Seahawks to land first-round pick Takk McKinley. Falcons obviously not desperate at guard because a couple just came off board in the second round. Coach Dan Quinn said draft deep at defensive line and defensive back.

Vaughn McClure ESPN Staff Writer 

The Falcons traded the 63rd pick to the Buffalo Bills for the 75th overall pick, the 149th overall pick, and the 156th overall pick. Falcons gave up two picks yesterday, including third rounder. Now back in the third with two fifth rounders.

Vaughn McClure ESPN Staff Writer 

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said the team could take another pass rusher after selecting Takk McKinley in the first round. We will see if the Falcons indeed look at a pass rusher with the upcoming 63rd pick. Two guys who were connected to Falcons during draft process, Derek Rivers and Jordan Willis, still on the board.

Vaughn McClure ESPN Staff Writer 

Ten picks away from the Falcons' second round selection. Seems like offensive guard along with depth at linebacker and safety should be the focus. Indiana G Dan Feeney is a tough guy. LSU LB Duke Riley can cover.

Vaughn McClure ESPN Staff Writer 

So offensive lineman Forrest Lamp is gone to the Chargers in the second round. So much for Lamp possibly falling to the Falcons. Maybe Indiana's Dan Feeney, Temple's Dion Dawkins, Pittsburgh's Dorian Johnson in play for Falcons at guard with the 63rd overall pick.

Falcons first round pick Takkarist McKinley talks about how his late grandmother influenced his life. He made her a promise to become a Division I football player and to make it to the NFL. Myrtle Collins passed away in 2011 due to heart complications.

Vaughn McClure ESPN Staff Writer 

Falcons first-rounder Takk McKinley on being selected with the 26th overall pick: ``To be honest, I thought I was going to go way earlier. So to get in the late rounds, I was like, `Man, am I'm going to get picked? What's going on?' The sweat started to come. When Atlanta made that trade and picked me, it was a bit surprising. It was a few teams that was willing to pick me. But Atlanta doing that, it's a blessing.''
