Oakland Raiders full seven-round 2019 NFL mock draft v4.0
By Brad Weiss
The Raiders proved last season that they need some help up front on the offensive line, as they started two rookies at the tackle positions, and had to deal with injuries on the interior. While Rodney Hudson was once again one of the better centers in the league, both guards missed time due to injury, and that is an area that needs to be addressed in the draft this April.
When it comes to the guards that are in this draft class, one name that could be an incredible find in the fifth round is Darryl Williams from Mississippi State. During his time with the Bulldogs, Williams developed into one of the better guards in the SEC, and with the Raiders, he would provide great depth early on behind Kelechi Osemele and Gabe Jackson.
Andrew Wingard is a safety prospect that I really like, as he does so many things well, and could be a welcome addition to this position group. He is an incredible tackler, and while he may not be the fastest guy on paper, his ability to recover when plays go wrong makes him a guy that should be drafted this April.
During his time at Wyoming, Wingard was used in many different ways, and he is one of those safeties who is adept at timing the blitz. Adding him to a group that includes Adderley, Karl Joseph, and Erik Harris would make this position group a strength in 2019.
