2011 NFL Draft Results: CB Chimdi Chekwa to Oakland Raiders; Scouting Report

Dylan MacNamara@@DylanMacNamaraSenior Writer IApril 30, 2011

The first-team All-American selection in 2010 lands in a great spot going to the Oakland Raiders.

Nnamdi Asomugha is 95 percent out the door, and Chekwa has a fantastic opportunity to contribute as a nickelback early.

Chekwa has good size at 6'0", 195 and has adequate size to project as a corner in the NFL. He broke his wrist in the Sugar Bowl so hasn't been able to showcase himself as much as he would've liked this offseason, but there's no doubt this is a great value pick for the Raiders.

After a couple of reach picks on day two, the Raiders get the right guy on day three.
