Raiders Hosting Iowa TE Noah Fant & Kentucky LB Josh Allen

     

According to Ian Rapoport, the Raiders will host Iowa TE Noah Fant for a visit on Monday. 

Per Adam Schefter, Kentucky LB Josh Allen is also visiting the team today and Tuesday. 

The Raiders hold three first-round picks at No. 4, No. 24 and No. 27. Allen is likely in play with the No. 4 selection if he’s available, while Fant could be an option if he drops to either of the Raiders’ latter two picks. 

Allen is considered to be one of the top pass rushers in a very deep 2019 draft class full of them. Many expect Allen to be a top-five pick when all is said done. 

During his four-year college career at Kentucky, Allen recorded 220 tackles, 31.5 sacks, an interception, 11 forced fumbles, two recoveries and eight pass defenses over the course of 42 games.

Fant, 21, is considered to be one of the top tight end prospects in this year’s draft and should end up being a first-round pick when all is said done. 

During his college career at Iowa, Fant caught 78 passes for 1083 yards (13.9 YPC) and 19 touchdowns over the course of three seasons and 30 games.
