The Raiders need help on the defensive side of the ball, and with five selections in the first 100 of the 2020 NFL Draft, they can certainly get some.
We’re still 5 months away from the Oakland, or should I say Las Vegas, Raiders having to make any final decisions when it comes to the 2020 NFL Draft. However, it is never too early to take a look at some potential defensive prospects they could look to acquire when that time comes.
The defense has looked atrocious as of late, especially after you almost give up a 50 burger to the likes of Ryan Tannehill and the Tennessee Titans. That in turn coming off the heals of losing 34-3 to the New York Jets, 40-9 to the Kansas City Chiefs, and having a combined 116-33 point differential in all three games after Sundays 42-21 loss.
Now, there’s no doubt that there is serious need on both sides of the ball. Only scoring 33 points in 3 games, 21 of which came in the most recent one alone, proves the offense is in need of play makers outside of Offensive Rookie of the Year front runner Josh Jacobs. But in honor of the 552 total offensive yards the Titans put up on Sunday at O.co Coliseum, I’m going to profile 5 defensive players the Raiders could potentially target in the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft.
Here are five defensive players that would great in the Silver and Black.
