The Oakland Raiders hold two first round picks in the 2020 NFL Draft, which will take place inside Sin City ahead of the team’s first season in Las Vegas.
The Oakland Raiders will move into their brand new stadium for the 2020 NFL season, as they embark on the latest era in the history of one of the more storied franchises in sports. While the 2018 Raiders have been nothing to write home about, they are a team that is playing good football as of late, and got some exciting news on Wednesday.
During the NFL Winter Meetings, it was announced that Las Vegas will host the 2020 NFL Draft, which will be the last one before the team christens their new stadium. Las Vegas has long been a mecca for entertainment, and you can be sure that the Raiders, and Sin City are going to put on one heck of a show two Aprils from now.
In that draft, the Raiders already hold two first round picks, and they are certain to be one of the main attractions when that first round kicks off. Jon Gruden is building this team for that move to Las Vegas, and by the time the team gets there in 2020, they should have a much better roster than the one they currently have.
The 2019 NFL Draft will be held in Nashville, Tennessee, and the Raiders hold three first round picks. Oakland has a chance to really improve this roster over the next two NFL Drafts, and heading into that first season in Las Vegas, the hope is that they are coming off a decent 2019 campaign, where their young players step up and gain experience.
There has been so much off-the-field news surrounding this team in recent days, as Reggie McKenzie was fired on Monday, and then the team was sued by the City of Oakland on Tuesday. This is the best news of the three, and knowing Mark Davis, he is going to put on one heck of a show for the rest of the league in April of 2020.
