The Las Vegas Raiders have many options to their disposal with two first-round picks and five total selection over the first two days. Here are three defensive players the Raiders could target if they decide to move back in the first round.
The Raiders currently sit with the No.12 and No.19 overall selections, although Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock aren’t afraid to alter the draft order. Last year, they traded out of their original draft slot multiple times on day two and three of the NFL’s lucrative event.
With no picks in the second round, a potential move that looms over the Raiders consists of trading back in the first round to acquire multiple picks, including a possible second-rounder.
The Raiders have been primarily mocked to a wide receiver and linebacker in round one, but regardless of how you shape it, they need help on every level of the defense. Taking the best defensive player available when selecting one of their first round picks is arguably the best decision for the team’s makeup.
Here are three trade back candidates that would help the Raiders defense in a major way.
