The Las Vegas Raiders have put an emphasis on adding to their defense this offseason. Las Vegas has bolstered its cornerback depth by signing Anthony Averett and Darius Phillips in free agency, plus trading for Rock Ya-Sin.

Now it turns out the Raiders could use the NFL Draft to bring in another CB.

Raiders Draft Rumors

Mike Kaye of Pro Football Network reports the Las Vegas are one of four teams showing interest in LSU cornerback Cordale Flott. Las Vegas has scheduled a pre-draft visit with Flott, along with the New York Giants, Denver Broncos and Indianapolis Colts.

Though Flott isn't the biggest name in this CB class, he's certainly intriguing. He's coming off of a junior campaign where he recorded the first interception of his collegiate career and 3 passes defended.

Flott showed a knack for making plays all over the field while with the Tigers, as evidenced by the 10 passes defended, 5.5 tackles for loss and 2 forced fumbles he recorded in three seasons.

There's no doubt the Alabama native still has room to grow after entering the draft before his senior year, but the 6-foot-1 corner showcased potential waiting to be tapped at the next level.
