In our latest look around the 2020 NFL mock drafts, one expert has the Las Vegas Raiders adding a new franchise quarterback at pick No. 12 overall.
As we inch closer to Super Bowl LIV, the Las Vegas Raiders have a lot of questions to answer in terms of their roster, but the only question on anybody’s mind is whether or not Derek Carr will be the team’s quarterback in 2020 and beyond. As it stands, all signs point to Carr being the guy to lead this team into their new era of football, but that has not stopped people from replacing him literally every day.
Whether it is Tom Brady, Jameis Winston, or the 2020 NFL Draft, all the experts feel he is done with the Silver and Black, which just does not appear to be the case. The Raiders have paraded him around all week long, and general manager Mike Mayock has even staked his backing of Carr, who enters his seventh season as the starter.
Still, when you look at a ton of NFL mock drafts, which I do daily, you cannot help but see that the team is trending that they may move in a new direction at quarterback. The latest mocks have the team taking Washington quarterback Jacob Eason in the first round, a player who is getting a lot of first round buzz since Senior Bowl prep began.
Here are four of the latest 2020 NFL Draft mocks as we enter Pro Bowl weekend.
