17) Pick 108: Jacoby Ford, Clemson (Raiders)
Ford, a fourth-round pick, played four seasons with the Raiders before being waived and not picked up. He was ranked by many NFL scouts as a top-10 receiver coming into the draft along with teammate C.J. Spiller. Ford and Spiller combined to record the most all-purpose yards for a duo in NCAA history during Clemson’s 40-24 win over Florida State in 2009.
With the Raiders, Ford 25 balls for 470 yards his rookie season, but made a bigger impact as a kick returner where he returned three kicks for touchdowns his rookie season. He broke the franchise record for most returns for touchdowns, 4, during the 2011 season.
