The hurt from the Antonio Brown drama is still lingering, but the Oakland Raiders could in prime position to replace that empty promise this coming April.
The Oakland Raiders have parted ways with troubled receiver Antonio Brown and with that are left with a big hole in their offense.
For now, they’ll count on their depth to replace the void left by Brown, but there doesn’t appear to be a #1 type receiver on the roster. And with nothing left in terms of free agents, the Raiders may have to wait until the draft to truly address their need for another wideout.
Luckily for Oakland, the 2020 draft class features some of the best receiver prospects since 2014. The class featured stars like Mike Evans, Odell Beckham Jr, Brandin Cooks, Devante Adams, and Jarvis Landry. And there are more reliable pass catchers that came later on in the draft.
With the season just about to start, it seems too early for fans to worry about the draft, but with what’s transpired these past few days it’s worth mentioning.
Here is a quick look at some receiver the Raiders could target next April.
