The Oakland Raiders have a need at the wide receiver position in 2019, and they could target one of these five players late in round one in April.
During the 2018 NFL season, the Oakland Raiders traded away a young star wideout in Amari Cooper, sending him to the Dallas Cowboys for a 2019 first round draft pick. That pick will come at No. 27 overall, their last of three first round picks, and with that pick, or No. 24, they could focus their attention on one of these five wide receivers.
Here are five wide receivers they could target after their first pick in the first round.
A.J. Brown, Ole Miss
A.J. Brown from Ole Miss was the most electric wide receiver in the best conference in football over the last two seasons, leading the SEC in receiving yards each year. With good size, and the kind of physicality you look for in a first round wide receiver, Brown is a player who could be inserted into the depth chart as the No. 1 guy in year one.
During his time at Ole Miss, Brown played in the slot, which would be a perfect fit for him on this Raiders team as well. He has no issues slashing through defenses, or going up and making a play on the ball, making him one of the more versatile wide receivers in this year’s draft class.
