5 cornerbacks the Raiders should target after the first round in 2019
By Brad Weiss
The Oakland Raiders have three picks in the first round in 2019, and if they do not draft a cornerback with those picks, here are five they can get later.
The Oakland Raiders are in a solid position to really improve this roster next April, as they hold three selections in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft. The Raiders also have an early pick in round two, as well as six picks in the first 100 selections.
The expectation heading into the draft will be that the Raiders will take an edge rusher early on in round one, but there are a lot more holes than that on this roster heading into next season. Oakland needs help on all three levels of the defense, and the wide receiver group is going to need an overhaul as well.
In addition, the lack of depth along the offensive line has hurt, as has the fact they are very light at the running back spot. In total, this team is going to look a lot different when they line up next September in the season opener, and they still do not have a place to play yet either.
Cornerback has long been an issue in Oakland, and if the Raiders do not use a first rounder on the position, they should target it soon after. Here are five cornerbacks the Raiders could target after round one.
