Raiders go heavy on defense in NFL draft

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) It was no surprise where the Oakland Raiders paid most attention in the NFL draft.

After his team struggled last season on defense and then made most of its pre-draft offseason additions on offense, general manager Reggie McKenzie went heavy on defensive players in the draft.

Oakland used its top three picks on defenders to strengthen the secondary and interior line before finally addressing its most glaring need by drafting Wake Forest inside linebacker Marquel Lee with a fifth-round pick Saturday.
