Oakland Raiders: Post-Combine 7-Round 2019 mock draft
By Brad Weiss
The Raiders close out their stellar first round with a target for Derek Carr, who is coming off a season that saw him throw for over 4,000 yards, and complete nearly 70 percent of his passes with very few weapons. Now, if the Raiders are in the running for Antonio Brown, this pick could be gone, but let us believe they hang on to all three first rounders for the time being.
With the No. 27 overall pick, the one they got from the Dallas Cowboys for Amari Cooper, the Raiders select their next young, great wide receiver. A.J. Brown absolutely shredded SEC defenses during his time at Ole Miss, and while his teammate got all the pub at the Combine, Brown should be the better pro.
If Oakland can add talent at wideout, and bring Jared Cook back at tight end, this could be a passing attack that is very hard to handle next season. Carr showed he could make plays with very little to work with, and Brown is a freak, so you can expect bigger numbers from Carr with a wideout group that includes Brown, Jordy Nelson, and whoever else they bring in this offseason.
