Las Vegas Raiders: 3-round 2021 NFL Mock Draft post-Hudson, Jackson trades
By Nick Ellis
Dylan Moses is a player who was projected to be the top linebacker taken had he entered the 2020 draft but decided to stay with Alabama for one more season. Moses tore his ACL going into the 2019 season and did not play after being the nation’s top linebacker in 2019, but when he returned for his 2020 season, he was not the same.
If Moses can get back to even 90% of his former self, he would be the best linebacker the Raiders have had in years. Mayock and Gruden have clearly not been afraid to take risks in the draft, and this one would be a high-risk high reward type of pick that I would love to see the Raiders take.
So there you have it, our first three-round 2021 NFL Mock Draft after the Rodney Hudson and Gabe Jackson trades. Las Vegas is going into this offseason looking to not only bring in talent, but do so on team-friendly deals, and so far, they have been more successful at doing that than not.
