With the Chicago Bears loss on Sunday night, the Oakland Raiders locked up the No. 24 overall pick in April. Here are five players that make sense there.
On Sunday night, the Chicago Bears lost their Wild Card Round game at home to the Philadelphia Eagles, ending their season on a sour note in front of their home fans. With the loss, the Oakland Raiders were guaranteed the No. 24 overall pick in the first round, a selection they got from the Bears when they traded them Khalil Mack.
While Mack had another All-Pro season for the Bears, both Chicago and Oakland are on the outside looking in at the Divisional Round, and are now entering the offseason. Oakland has a lot of work to do to build up their roster, but they have a fantastic opportunity in April, where they have three first round selections in the 2019 NFL Draft.
We already looked at who they could take at No. 4, the selection they earned by going 4-12, and now that No. 24 is in stone for the time being, we can ponder some selections there. The Dallas Cowboys are still alive, and the Raiders own their first round pick, so we will cross that bridge when the selection number is set.
Here are five guys that make sense with the No. 24 overall pick in 2019.
