The Oakland Raiders went into the 2018 NFL season with Amari Cooper atop the depth chart at the wideout position for the fourth straight season. However, Cooper was shipped to the Dallas Cowboys for a first round pick at the trade deadline, ending a run with the team that saw him play very inconsistent football throughout.
With Jordy Nelson returning in 2019, and Marcell Ateman likely to move up the depth chart, the Raiders still have a need for an elite wide receiver or two this offseason. With the No. 24 overall pick, the one they got from the Chicago Bears for Khalil Mack, Oakland could roll the dice on an electric wideout in D.K. Metcalf from Ole Miss.
Metcalf saw his 2018 season end early due to injury, but appears to be fully healthy heading into the NFL Scouting Combine. He would instantly stand atop the Raiders depth chart at the wide receiver position, and playing alongside a legend in Nelson, he could develop into one of the better weapons in the AFC West moving forward. Oh yeah, he is also 6-foot-4.
