The Raiders hold five picks inside the top 90 selections, so let’s take a look at what their options could be come draft day.
With the Raiders rounding out their season with a last-minute loss against the Denver Broncos, they’ve finished the year at 7-9 and are locked in to pick No.12 and pick No.19 come draft day.
The Raiders showed a three game improvement from last year’s four win season. They still remain with many holes on the roster — most notably at wide receiver, linebacker and quarterback depending on how you slice it. Mike Mayock and Jon Gruden’s first collective draft class surprised many people around the league, but can they pull the rabbit out of the hat in back-to-back years?
Mayock’s reputation in the NFL landscape speaks for itself and he finds himself once again in a good position to acquire top-tier talent with five picks on the first two days of the draft.
