Round 1, Pick No. 16 (From Chicago Bears): Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama
There is no doubt that Dylan Moses is a first round prospect, and had he not torn his ACL, he could have ended up being a top-10 pick in this draft class. He has the ability to cover, is one of the better football minds in this draft class, and is never afraid to come up and make the big hit.
In his latest mock draft for thedraftnetwork.com, Kyle Crabbs likes the Raiders to take Moses with not only a first round pick, but their first, first round pick. Of course, the organization hit big with selecting an Alabama Crimson Tide player in the first round last year, selecting Josh Jacobs, and Moses could have that same kind of impact if he is healthy in 2020.
Round 1, Pick No. 17: Laviska Shenault Jr., WR, Colorado
There seems to be little doubt that Laviska Shenault Jr. is going to make it out of the first round in 2020, and on this Raiders offense, he would be a perfect addition. Not only does he have the ability to go over the middle, but he is an absolute game-breaker, and Jon Gruden would have no issues drawing up plays for him to beat teams over the top.
So there you have it, the latest mock drafts from some of the experts around the internet. This is a Raiders team that is very close to being a perennial playoff team, and if the combination of Mike Mayock and Jon Gruden can once again strike gold in the upcoming draft, they have the draft capital, and cap space to make their first season in Las Vegas a special one.
