Raiders Sign Round 2 CB Trayvon Mullen

The Raiders now have their Clemson contingent under contract. Hours after revealing they signed first-round pick Clelin Ferrell, the team announced second-round cornerback Trayvon Mullen agreed to terms.

Ferrell, Mullen and Hunter Renfrow comprised the Raiders’ Clemson group; the slot receiver had previously signed his rookie deal. Two Raiders picks remain unsigned, first-rounders Josh Jacobs and Johnathan Abram.

Mullen, the No. 40 overall pick, figures to factor in prominently among Oakland’s corners this season. Before leaving after his junior season, the 6-foot-1 defender started 26 games for the Tigers. He joins the likes of Gareon Conley, Daryl Worley, Nevin Lawson, fourth-round pick Isaiah Johnson and new slot corner Lamarcus Joyner as the primary coverage cogs for the Silver and Black.

A cousin of Lamar Jackson, Mullen was the fifth cornerback taken this year. He came off the board during a run of corners in the early part of the second round, which saw six corners go off the board between picks 33 and 46.

Here is a look at the Raiders’ 2019 draft class:
