With the NFL Draft coming up, the Las Vegas Raiders will have plenty of options with their two first-round picks but they might only need to look at one school.
College football season is over and the Raiders won’t take the field until August, which means we have officially entered NFL Draft season. Last year, the then-Oakland, now-Las Vegas Raiders placed a high priority on players who came from winning programs, and that could be the case once again in 2020.
Three out of the first four 2019 draft selections – Clelin Ferrell, Josh Jacobs, and Trayvon Mullen – played in the National Championship game, and all three of them had major impacts on the team’s successes as rookies. Barring a shocking turn of events, expect this trend to continue in 2020, as there are some winning programs who have duos that make a ton of sense for the Raiders in round one.
When it comes to college football, no program is more prestigious than the University of Alabama. The Crimson Tide have won five National Championships since 2009 and consistently turn out multiple first-round picks year after year. This upcoming draft will be no different and Las Vegas may end up adding a couple of Josh Jacob’s former teammates with picks 12 and 19.
