The Las Vegas Raiders selected Trey Talor, a safety from Air Force, with the 32nd pick in the seventh round of the 2024 NFL Draft. At 23 years old, Taylor has played five collegiate seasons but did not see the field for his freshman and sophomore campaigns.

Unsurprisingly, 2023 was his best season, winning the Jim Thorpe Award (given to the nation’s top DB). As a result, Taylor also was named to the Third-team Associated Press All-American and First-team All-Mountain West Conference last year.

Taylor is also the cousin of Hall of Fame safety Ed Reed. We’ll see if it helps.

The seventh player selected by the Las Vegas Raiders in the 2024 NFL Draft, Trey Taylor joins Georgie TE Brock Bowers, Oregon OL Jackson Powers-Johnson, Maryland OL Delmar Glaze, and Mississippi State CB Decamerion Richardson, LB Tommy Eichenberg, RB Dylan Laube at their new NFL home.

Learn more about the Raiders’ previous draft picks below.

Round 1, Pick 13 (13th overall): Brock Bowers, TE Georgia

At 6’4, 240 pounds, Bowers tallied 714 yards and six touchdowns in his junior season. A three-time All-American, three-time first-team All-SEC and two-time John Macket Award (nation’s top TE) winner, Brock Bowers was regarded as the best tight end in the 2024 NFL Draft class.

Regarded for his versatile skills as both a route runner and threat downfield, along with an exceptional pass and run blocker, Brock Bowers joins Michael Mayer in the Raiders’ tight end room. They traded up in the 2023 NFL Draft to select Mayer at 35th overall.

Round 2, Pick 12 (44th overall): Jackson Powers-Johnson, OL Oregon

In 2023, Jackson Powers-Johnson won the Rimington Trophy (nation’s top center), first-team All-Pac-12 Conference, and first-team Associated Press All-American. Powers-Johnson also was a Joe Moore Award (nation’s top OL) finalist after starting 13 games last season.

Having played multiple positions on the offensive line (and some defensive) throughout his three seasons with the Ducks, he could help bolster the Raiders’ offensive line.

Round 3, Pick 13 (77th overall): Delmar Glaze, OL Maryland

The second offensive line selection for the Raiders of the night, Glaze measured at 6’4, 315 pounds.

Delmar Glaze emerged in 2022, his junior season at Maryland, starting all 13 games and earning an honorable mention for the All-Big Ten Conference team. Last season, he continued his upward trajectory, earning Third-team All-Big Ten Conference honors.

Round 4, Pick 12 (122nd overall): Decamerion Richardson, CB Mississippi State

Taken at the 12th pick of the fourth round (112 overall), Richardson measured in at 6’2, 188 pounds after his senior season.

The 23-year-old started all 25 games played for Mississippi State since his junior season. In 2023, Decamerion Richardson led his team with seven pass breakups. The defender logged a 4.34 40-yard dash at the combine.

Round 5, Pick 13 (148th overall): Tommy Eichenberg, LB Ohio State

Taken at the 13th pick of the fifth round, Eichenberg (23) measured at 6’2, 233 pounds after his fifth collegiate season.

Tommy Eichenberg was a two-time First-team All-Big Ten Conference, Second-team Associated Press All-American in 2022, and Big Ten LB of the Year for Ohio State in 2023. He is also the brother of Miami Dolphins OL Liam Eichenberg.

Round 7, Pick 3 (223rd overall): Dylan Laube, RB New Hampshire

The 32nd pick in the sixth round, Laube measured in at 5’10, 206 pounds with a 4.54 40-yard dash.

In 2023, Dylan Laube was awarded First-Team Associated Association PR, First-Team All-Costal Athletic Association RB/PR, CAA Special Teams Player of the Year, and a finalist for the Walter Payton Award (given to the top player in the FCS).

The Las Vegas Raiders still control pick 229 in the 2024 Draft.
