2020 NFL Draft: 5 options at Pick No. 12 for Las Vegas Raiders
On top of the issues at linebacker, the lack of a go-to option at wide receiver is something the Raiders clearly need to address this offseason. Luckily, the 2020 draft class is deep with receiver talent, so the Raiders should have no issue finding a quality prospect. If they do decide to go WR with their first pick, there are some serious talents at the top of the board, and it starts with prospects like Oklahoma’s CeeDee Lamb.
Lamb got his chance to be the Sooner’s number one option this year with the departure of Hollywood Brown, and he took his game to a different level. His ball skills and body control were always something to marvel at, but his run after the catch ability in 2019 was special. That YAC is precisely what the Raiders need in their style of offense.
He is not someone that is going to blow people away with his straight-line speed, but he seems to play fast, which is what’s most important. Lastly, he can handle press-man coverage and doesn’t at all shy away from physicality. Lamb has all the traits of a number one option for any team, and the Raiders should undoubtedly jump at the chance to take him.
