The Raiders have taken care of another piece of business on Friday.

Las Vegas has signed third-round pick Malcolm Koonce to his standard four-year rookie deal, the club announced.

Koonce was a two-time, first-team All-MAC honoree for two years in a row at Buffalo. He registered 5.5 tackles for loss and 5.0 sucks in 2020, which helped him become a third-round pick for Las Vegas this year.

With Koonce’s deal done, the Raiders now have all seven of their 2021 draftees under contract. Linebacker Divine Deablo signed his rookie contract earlier on Friday.

  1. He should be able to get at least 10.5 sucks his first year with the Raiders!

  2. I’m excited to see Koonce play, but I guarantee that he will never shed the comparisons to Mack. Go Raiders!

  3. He racked up a fair amount of sucks in college. I’m no Mayock but that would be a red flag for me. Hopefully he can take it to the next level and leave those sucks back in college.
