The Oakland Raiders selected safety Shalom Luani with the 221st pick (seventh round).

Luani played for City College of San Francisco in 2013 and 2014.

“That guy is a playmaker,” GM Reggie McKenzie said of Luani. “You can look at one quarter of football and you know he loves the game.”

CCSF head coach Jimmy Collins celebrated the pick on Twitter:

“He is a — as they say down south — a football-playing Jessie, whatever that means,” McKenzie said. “It’s a country saying, but that’s what he is. He’s tough. He’s physical. He has ball skills. He can kind of do it all.”
