Baltimore gets a fourth-round pick for defensive end Yannick Ngakoue; Arizona gets a sixth-round pick for Kenyan running back Drake; and San Francisco getting a seventh-round pick for defensive tackle Solomon Thomas. the Chargers should also get a seventh-round pick for linebacker Denzel Perryman, but that’s based on his signing with Carolina.

The Raiders currently have six picks in the draft, starting with No. 22 in the first round.
