The Oakland Raiders hold six of the first 100 picks in the 2019 NFL Draft, and we take another look at who their nine selections could be in April.
The Oakland Raiders will be on the spot this April, as they hold three first round draft picks, and six of the first 100 selections. This offseason, they brought in NFL draft analyst Mike Mayock to be their general manager, a move that was likely made due to his ability to evaluate talent.
Jon Gruden is a great coach when it comes to drawing up a game plan, but he needs to rely on other people when it comes to the draft. He does not have the greatest resume in drafting talent, and in Mayock, he has a partner that will not only give him input, but fight for the players he wants.
This past week, Gruden and his staff were coaching the Senior Bowl, and he got a first-hand look at some of the better talent the 2019 NFL Draft has to offer. The 2019 draft is so important to the future of the organization, as the team had to trade away star players in order to get back such a bounty of draft capital.
Here is a look at an updated seven-round NFL mock draft for the Oakland Raiders after the Senior Bowl.
