With the 231st pick in the NFL Draft, Alabama State offensive tackle Jylan Ware was picked up by the Oakland Raiders in the seventh round.
Projected to be a late-round pick or undrafted free-agent, Ware was touted as featuring foot quickness and agility to handle edge rushers, according to an NFL.com scouting report.
#Raiders chose Alabama State OT Jylan Ware!
A star at the @HBUCSpiritBowl. They were there to scout him.
Take note #HBCU football players!
