After the NFL Scouting Combine wrapped up this weekend it was time for the major outlets to update their mock drafts. CBS Sports updated theirs and predicted who the Las Vegas Raiders would select with their two first round draft picks.
The football world was abuzz with the results of the NFL Scouting Combine last week and as players both hurt and helped their draft stock with their performances, mock drafts had to be updated as a result. We have seen the Las Vegas Raiders predicted to select all sorts of different players due to the many needs the team has, especially on defense, so it was expected that the predictions would change.
This was the case for CBS Sports's Ryan Wilson as he predicted the Raiders would select Alabama wide receiver Jerry Jeudy and corner back Trevon Diggs in his mock draft from February 24th but shifted gears with his post-combine predictions. Jeudy and Diggs both fill positions of need for the Raiders and may be available for either selection in the first round but Wilson went in another direction.
In his recently published mock draft, Wilson went all defense as many others have predicted but circled two players that helped themselves with impressive performances and measurables in Indianapolis. They were possible first round picks coming in to the combine but should be making their way further up draft boards now.
