The Oakland Raiders have selected Central Florida running back Latavius Murray with their second pick in the sixth round of the NFL draft.

Oakland took Murray 181st overall on Saturday with a pick acquired earlier in the day from Tampa Bay for moving down in the fourth round.

Murray rushed for 1,106 yards on 198 carries with 15 touchdowns last season. He also caught 27 passes for 231 yards and four touchdowns.

The Raiders took tight end Nick Kasa with their first sixth-round pick. Oakland still has two more sixth-round picks at 184th overall and 205th, as well as two seventh rounders.
