The Las Vegas Raiders hold two fifth-round picks, and with the first of two, they address the cornerback position. This is a position that the team has yet to address this offseason, and at pick No. 162, they bring in Kary Vincent Jr., a player who was a key to the LSU secondary in 2018 and their national championship year of 2019.

Vincent would be a solid fit in this secondary, as he has tremendous press coverage ability, and is going to be an inside corner at the next level, possibly move to free safety down the line. He is an explosive athlete, tracks the ball well, and would battle with Amik Robertson for the starting slot job.

The Raiders brought in Yannick Ngakoue this offseason, and he is certainly going to help Maxx Crosby continue to develop as a pass rusher. Crosby was double-teamed far too often in Year 2 t his past season but was still able to notch seven sacks, which was one-third of the 21 that the team had as a group.

Chauncey Golston from Iowa is fresh off a very productive season for the Hawkeyes, one that saw him rack up 5.5 sacks. He has good length, is perfect for a base 4-3 defense, and has a nose for the ball, making him a solid depth guy the Raiders could bring in at the edge rusher spot here in the fifth round.
