The Las Vegas Raiders address most of their needs in the 2020 NFL Draft and through free agency but there are still a few that remain

Coming in to the 2020 offseason, the Las Vegas Raiders needs were abundantly clear. They needed to vastly improve the linebackers after years of poor play from the position, rebuild the wide receiver group after a series of failed moves, build up the defensive line depth, pick up a back-up running back, and find an edge rusher to complement the young duo or Maxx Crosby and Clelin Ferrell.

The Raiders addressed several of these needs with free agents including bringing in Carl Nassib from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Nelson Agholor from the Philadelphia Eagles, and bringing back Rod Smith after his short stint in Oakland.

They also focused their draft capital mainly on needs but the plan of trading back in the first round to stockpile picks never materialized and they made just the seven selections, albeit at different places in the draft due to some maneuvering.

It is safe to say that for the most part these needs have been addressed either through free agency or through the draft but there still some question marks that may become more serious in case of injury or suspension.
