Drafted By Oakland Raiders in 1st Round
4/27/2017 8:02 PM PDT
Gareon Conley is now an Oakland Raider — the team drafted the embattled football star in the 1st round of the NFL Draft … despite being in the middle of a rape investigation.
Conley fell to the 24th pick (he probably would’ve gone higher if not for the allegations). We know Conley spoke with multiple teams before and during the draft — teams who interrogated about the allegations.
Clearly the Raiders believe he’s telling the truth — that he did not rape the accuser in a Cleveland hotel on April 9th.
Conley was not at the NFL Draft in Philadelphia — instead, he was celebrating with close friends and family members at a private gathering in Ohio.
His family previously told TMZ Sports they believe God is on their side … and Gareon will prove his innocence.
The Raiders have a lot riding on that.
