The Las Vegas Raiders need to find a new right tackle after trading Trent Brown, and they do just that in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
The Las Vegas Raiders head into the 2021 NFL Draft with only one first-round pick, a change from the last two years where they had three and two, respectively. With this pick, they could go several different ways, and as we have already seen, teams are jockeying for position in round one, making trades.
As we inch closer to the first round later this month, here is our latest 7-round Raiders 2021 NFL Mock Draft.
One of the bigger moves for the Raiders this offseason was the trading away of Trent Brown, their starting right tackle the last two seasons. When healthy, Brown proved to be one of the best right tackles in football, but unfortunately for the Raiders, he has played half of the games he was eligible for across two seasons.
Replacing him is not going to be easy, as he can dominate opposite Kolton Miller, but at pick No. 17 in our mock, the Silver and Black get an absolute mauler from Oklahoma State. Teven Jenkins may look like a quiet, kind person in his media photo, but on the field, he is as mean as they come and would be a kid who could come in and start right away in Las Vegas.
What was once a sure defensive pick at No. 17, is starting to look like offensive tackle, and if Jenkins is available, Las Vegas has to make him the selection.
