First round of choice Alex Leatherwood

Alex Leatherwood's disappointing Las Vegas debut came to an abrupt end.

The Raiders are giving up on the first round of 2021, NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero reported.

The team also trades cornerback Trayvon Mullen, a former second-round pick.

to the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick that could become a sixth-round pick depending on time played

Leatherwood's choice came as a surprise on draft night, but the Raiders

which were then led by general manager Mike Mayock and coach Jon Gruden

claimed they didn't care what skeptics thought of their choice.

Despite consensus that Leatherwood was oversubscribed by at least one round

Las Vegas continued to believe Leatherwood would team up with Kolton Miller to block the Raiders for years to come.
