One of the top picks in the 2015 NFL Draft is now seeking a new professional home. He's reportedly been released.

Senquez Golson, a second round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, has reportedly been released by the Oakland Raiders, who picked him up earlier this year.

The former Ole Miss cornerback was the No. 56 overall pick in the draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers three years ago. He spent two seasons in Pittsburgh and then one in Tampa Bay.

Golson has yet to come close to living up to his draft pick.

ESPN NFL insider Field Yates first reported the news.

Golson was reportedly waived to make room for quarterback Christian Hackenberg. The Raiders traded for the former Jets' quarterback on Tuesday.

Golson was a unanimous All-American and first-team All-SEC player at Ole Miss in 2014. At this point, the cornerback might have difficulty latching onto another NFL roster.
