The Las Vegas Raiders now know where they pick in the 2020 NFL Draft after the Seattle Seahawks lost to the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round.
During the 2020 NFL Draft, the Las Vegas Raiders will hold multiple first round picks, just as they did during their dominant 2019 draft. Last year, the Raiders added three difference-makers with their three first round picks, including Josh Jacobs, who could end up being the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year this season.
Of course, in 2020, the Raiders will be entering their new city, as they are leaving the Bay Area behind for Sin City. Las Vegas will play host to the 2020 NFL Draft as well, as general manager Mike Mayock and head coach Jon Gruden look to continue to reconstruct this Raiders roster after so many losing seasons since 2002.
In 2019, the then-Oakland Raiders improved by three wins, going 7-9, and were actually in the playoff race up until Week 17. They will be looking to bring in the final pieces that can make this a playoff-caliber roster in 2020, and the draft is a great place to find cornerstones for the organization.
Remember, the Raiders held the Seahawks third round pick in 2020, so with their loss to the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round on Sunday night, here is the list of 2020 NFL Draft picks for the Las Vegas Raiders.
- Round 1, Pick No. 12
- Round 1, Pick No. 19 (From Chicago Bears)
- Round 3, Pick No. 80
- Round 3, Pick No. 81 (From Chicago Bears)
- Round 3, Pick No. 91 (From Seattle Seahawks)
- Round 4, Pick No. 111
- Round 7, Pick No. 204
As you can see, the Raiders do not have a second round pick, as that went to the Bears during the Khalil Mack trade. In addition, after the team picks in round No. 4, they do not have another selection until Round 7, so it is very possible that the Raiders draft selections during the 2020 NFL Draft look a lot different than they are currently set up.
It will be another exciting April for this Raiders franchise, who did a fantastic job of stacking talent during the 2019 NFL Draft. It will be interesting to see what Mayock and Gruden do with their draft capital this year, as they are a few pieces short of a playoff roster, and have enough early picks to make another huge statement in a few months.
