The Oakland Raiders have three picks in the first round in 2019, and on Sunday, they will finally know where those three picks stand.

When it comes time for the 2019 NFL Draft, the Oakland Raiders will be a team that everyone has their eyes on. Not only do they hold the No. 4 overall pick in the first round after going 4-12 this season, they also hold two picks in the twenties, thanks to trades they made with the Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys.

Last weekend, the Raiders found out where their pick they own from Chicago will be, as the Bears lost to the Philadelphia Eagles, securing the No. 24 pick for the Raiders. On Saturday night, the Cowboys fell to the Los Angeles Rams, and now the team will have to wait until Sunday night to find out where their final pick in the first round will be.

It is pretty simple. If the Eagles win on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, Oakland gets the No. 26 overall pick. If they lose, they get No. 27.

The Eagles are once again riding Nick Foles magic in 2019, and if they do win, it will continue a run that has taking the NFL by storm. Foles has replaced an injured Carson Wentz for the second straight season, leading his team to improbable wins, and on the brink of their second consecutive NFC Championship Game.

However,  they are big-time underdogs against the Saints on Sunday night, as the game will be played inside the Superdome, where New Orleans is very tough to beat.

There are so many ways the Raiders could go this coming April, and another wrench was thrown in the mix when Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray stated he would throw his hat in the ring come draft time. Oakland has a real opportunity to improve this roster this offseason, as they attempt to get out of the cellar in the AFC West.
