Saturday, April 27th, 2013 at 2:42 pm in Oakland Raiders.
The Raiders selected San Diego State wide receiver Brice Butler with the first of their two seventh-round picks Saturday.
Butler caught 24 passes for 347 yards and four touchdowns his senior season. He opened some eyes with an impressive showing at his pro day.
He ran a 4.36-second 40-yard dash and displayed a 39-inch vertical leap. He stands 6-3 and weighs 205 pounds.
Butler’s father Bobby played defensive backs for the Atlanta Falcons during a 12-year NFL career.
Brice Butler transferred from Southern Cal to San Diego State after three seasons.
Would not be surprised to see the Raiders convert Butler to cornerback.
