It is officially NFL mock draft season, and in this piece, we  take a look at some of the first round mocks, and who the Las Vegas Raiders are expected to pick.

With the NFL season officially over, it is time to take a deep look into the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft, and what players and positions the Las Vegas Raiders will look to address. General manager Mike Mayock did a terrific job of finding talent during the 2019 NFL Draft, and with two first round picks in 2020, he will look to work his magic once more.

This year, the Raiders could go a number of different directions with these picks, as they could add a wide receiver, linebacker, cornerback, defensive lineman, or even a quarterback. Looking around at the current NFL mocks out there, only one thing is clear, nobody really knows what Mayock and Jon Gruden are going to do.

Coming off a seven-win season, which was a three-win improvement, there is still a lot of work to be done. In addition, the Raiders will be playing their first season in their new $2 billion stadium in Las Vegas, so the win-now expectations cannot be avoided.

Let's take a look at what some other writers and websites across the internet believe the Raiders will do in the first round of the 2020 draft.
