With the conclusion of the Divisional Round, Oakland knows where they will pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, and here is the list of picks they currently hold.
The Oakland Raiders have their first round picks locked in after the Divisional Round, as the Dallas Cowboys lost to the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday, and the Philadelphia Eagles lost to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. The Raiders were able to nab three first round picks total thanks to trading away some major assets in Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper, and now the pressure is on to make good on the selections.
Oakland will pick first at No. 4 overall, the pick they got by going 4-12 this past season. At No. 24, the Raiders will select in place of the Chicago Bears, the team they sent All-Pro Khalil Mack to prior to the 2018 NFL season.
On Sunday, they got their third pick finalized, which became No. 27 after the Eagles lost. This pick originally belonged to the Dallas Cowboys, whom the Raiders sent Pro Bowl wide receiver Amari Cooper to during the 2018 NFL trade deadline.
Here is the full list of 2019 draft picks for the Raiders.
Round 1, Pick No. 4
Round 1, Pick No. 24
Round 1, Pick No. 27
Round 2, Pick No. 35
Round 3, Pick No. 66
Round 4, Pick No. 100
Round 5, Pick No. 131
Round 6, Pick No. 184
Round 7, Pick No. 196
Round 7, Pick No. 213
With their first of three first round picks, Oakland will likely target a pass rusher, as they were historically bad at getting after the quarterback after letting Mack go. Lucky for them, that is one of the positions that the 2019 NFL Draft class is deep in, so guys like Josh Allen from Kentucky, Clelin Ferrell from Clemson, or Nick Bosa from Ohio State could be donning the Silver and Black next season.
Oakland has a lot of holes to fill heading into the 2019 NFL season, so having six of the first 100 picks is a fantastic start. They hired a former draft analyst to be their new general manager in Mike Mayock, so hopefully the hire will lead to them really capitalizing on all this draft capital next April.
