The Raiders selected seven players in the 2020 NFL Draft, ending their selecting in the fourth round, and all seven should make an impact as rookies.
Once again holding multiple first round picks, Las Vegas Raiders general manager Mike Mayock had the ammunition once again to revamp the team’s roster. With those two first round picks, Mayock addressed arguably the two biggest needs on the team, adding a true WR1 at the top of the depth chart, and a cornerback that could possibly start opposite Trayvon Mullen next season.
As he did in 2019, Mayock hit home runs after the first round as well, selecting Lynn Bowden Jr. and Bryan Edwards back-to-back in the third round, and closing their third round haul with Clemson linebacker Tanner Muse. In the fourth round, Mayock landed Clemson All-American guard John Simpson, before selecting the steal of the draft, Amik Robertson from Lousiana Tech.
Overall, Mayock added extremely talented players at positions of need, and the Silver and Black go into the 2020 season with more firepower than ever.
For their efforts, the Raiders received a high grade from NFL Mocks.
