ESPN – Mel Kiper
#12 Jerry Jeudy – WR, Alabama
#19 Kenneth Murray – LB, Oklahoma
ESPN’s Mel Kiper released his 2.0 mock draft, and it is pretty standard when it comes to the Raiders with them taking Jerry Jeudy and Kenneth Murray.
For Jeudy, Kiper highlighted the fact that Oakland only scored 14.7 points per game over their final six games, which won’t get it done. So adding a dynamic playmaker at wideout would give the Raiders an exciting young trio moving forward.
"“And with a nucleus of Jeudy, Waller and Josh Jacobs, Las Vegas would have one of the NFL’s best young WR-RB-TE combos to help whomever starts at quarterback in 2020”"
The interesting notes came in his description of the Murray pick, where he talked about the Raiders possible trading not only the #19 pick but the #12 pick also to get a quarterback.
"“… but I should also mention the possibility of Gruden and general manager Mike Mayock packaging their two first-round picks to move up for a quarterback. It’s doable.”"
That would be a wild move by Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock, and it is obviously just thoughts by Kiper, but it is interesting how he just stuck that in there.
