With the Las Vegas Raiders looking to compete in 2021, they will need rookies ready to contribute on day one, both on offense and defense.

The free agency period appears to be slowing down significantly, which means we are in full-time draft mode for the Las Vegas Raiders. And after some big moves along with the roster these past few weeks, the draft needs have changed slightly.

The offensive line has become a huge need for the Raiders as they need someone opposite of Kolton Miller at tackle. Despite the organization’s trust in a few players, nothing should logically prevent them from an upgrade on the interior too, especially for the long-run.

That is on top of addressing the glaring holes that are still on the ball’s defensive side. To date, the Raiders have brought in talent to help them up front along the defensive line, and at linebacker, but they have neglected the defensive backfield. You can expect them to address it in this year’s draft.

We tackle all that and more in our new 7-round mock draft, but not before starting it off with a massive trade.
