NFL Mock Draft 2012: Oakland Raiders Select Cliff Harris In 5th Round

The Oakland Raiders are going to be waiting a long time in this NFL Draft before they hear their name being called.

With their first available move, Drafttek has them taking...another speedster. Literally. Cliff Harris of the Oregon Ducks is their pick.

Harris makes some sense as the Raiders had trouble in their pass coverage at various points of the season as they struggled to offset the loss of Nnamdi Asmougha. Harris is the type of guy who was a playmaker when he was up in Eugene, logging big time interceptions along with great return ability. However there are big issues with his character, as he was booted off the football team after barely contributing at all to the 2011 squad. He has the physical talent to succeed, but is the mental endurance there?
