Oakland Raiders full seven-round 2019 NFL Mock Draft
By Brad Weiss
The Raiders trotted out a sorry wide receiver group for their game against the Baltimore Ravens, as guys like Marcell Ateman, Seth Roberts, and Keon Hatcher were listed as active. While Ateman could end up being a good player, this wide receiver group as a whole needs an upgrade, and utilizing an early second round pick on the position makes sense.
When it comes to the 2019 NFL Draft class, there are a handful of guys who should hear their name called in the first two rounds in terms of wide receivers. One player who could be available when the Raiders draft in the second is Marquise Brown, who has that game-breaking ability this team is lacking at the position.
Trading away Amari Cooper left a hole at the top of the depth chart, and is one that cannot be filled by guys like Jordy Nelson or Martavis Bryant. Adding Brown to a young wide receiver group would give Derek Carr a serious gamebreaker at the top of the depth chart, and a player who can really take the lid off a defense at any time.
