Wideouts to target after first round
If the first round does not shake out the way the Raiders would like it to, and they miss out on bringing in an elite wide receiver, they could shift their focus to a solid group later on. Remember, the Silver and Black hold three third round picks in 2020 as well, and there will be plenty of guys who can make an immediate impact available.
Looking at the collection of talent that should sneak out of the first round, and maybe even the second, there is reason to believe the Raiders will dial up a wideout in the third, even if they get one in the first. Guys like Ben Victor from Ohio State and Stephen Guidry from Mississippi State are big targets, and could be elite options in the red zone at the NFL level.
Michael Pittman Jr. proved to be an absolute playmaker during his time at USC, and has the ability to stretch the field on any play. Notre Dame’s Chase Claypool is another interesting prospect, as he is big enough to play tight end, but also athletic enough to make plays happen on the outside.
Overall, I could see the Raiders adding at least two wide receivers during the 2020 NFL Draft, as this class is that deep when it comes to the position group. A first round target is a must, and they are in position to get one of the elite at No. 12 overall, but in the third round, they could bring in a quality player who can be the No. 4 man on the depth chart immediately.
