Raiders take UConn S Melifonwu, UCLA DL Vanderdoes on day 2

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) The Oakland Raiders stuck to defense on day two of the NFL draft, taking Connecticut safety Obi Melifonwu with their second-round pick and UCLA defensive tackle Eddie Vanderdoes in the third round.

The Raiders took Melifonwu with the 56th overall pick Friday night, adding more help for the secondary after taking Ohio State cornerback Gareon Conley with their first-round pick. They followed that by filling a hole at defensive tackle with Vanderdoes at 88th overall.

Oakland was targeting defensive help in the draft after struggling on that side of the ball last season. General manager Reggie McKenzie had made the most of his pre-draft additions on offense because he felt there was plenty of defensive talent in the draft.
