NFL Draft: Oakland Raiders Prospect Visits and Workouts List


NFL teams are allowed 30 visits from prospects, not including players that are local to the area. The list below will also include meetings at the Senior Bowl or NFL Combine, which don’t count towards the 30 visit limit.

CB Marcus Peters, Washington

CB Josh Shaw, USC
S Cedric Thompson, Minnesota
CB Tray Walker, Texas Southern
WR Shane Wynn, Indiana

Again, this is an unofficial list. Understandably, teams try to keep most of the their draft plans under wraps, so even the big networks will report different things when it comes to visits, workouts, etc.

So with that being said, there are likely some names missing from this list, and there are probably a few names on here that shouldn’t be. But we can at least take a look at the players and possibly identify a trend.

The first thing that stands out is the amount of WR’s the Raiders have looked at. There are nine total on this list, most of any position. Amari Cooper and Leonard Williams are notable omissions, but I wouldn’t put much into that. They probably know everything they need to know about both prospects already.

There are six CB’s and one S, and five of them came in on private visits. Look for Reggie McKenzie to add another young DB to the mix, probably in a mid-round.

There is a decent number of OL’s listed, and only a few front seven players.

The next question is, how much of this matters? Last year, the Raiders did meet with Derek Carr, and McKenzie was at Khalil Mack’s Pro Day, but after that, none of their other draft picks appear on any visit lists.

So the list of course matters to an extent. These visits are essentially job interviews, and many of them may go a long way in determining whether or not a certain player will be drafted.

But the NFL Draft is one of the most meticulous processes in all of sports, and these visits ultimately are just one small piece of a very large puzzle.
