Raiders take Tiger OL off the board in the final round.

Kelly Lambert-USA TODAY Sports

LSU offensive lineman Vadal Alexander was the fifth Tiger off the board today, as the Oakland Raiders selected him with the 234th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Alexander went one pick after teammate Jalen Mills, who was chosen by the Philadelphia Eagles. Both players had been expected to go in the top half of the draft, but fell to the final round for some reason -- possibly injury concerns.
