The Las Vegas Raiders need depth at linebacker and here are 5 linebackers they should target on Day 3 of the 2021 NFL Draft.
The Las Vegas Raiders have a solid group of linebackers on paper as they bring back the three starters from the 2020 season in Nicholas Morrow, Nick Kwiatkoski, and Cory Littleton. All three players had their ups and downs but also made some splash plays here and there as the season wore on.
Morrow was the surprise standout of the group and was brought back as a free agent while Littleton and Kwiatkoski are in the middle of three-year deals. Littleton struggled mightily under Paul Guenther but started to find his feet once he was replaced by Rod Marinelli and the Raiders still have not given up hope on him yet. Kwiatkoski made some big plays here and there but like Littleton, looked a little lost in Guenther’s scheme at times.
Behind those 3, the Raiders currently have two unknowns in Tanner Muse and Javin White who either played very little or did not play at all in 2020. With some bigger needs up and down the roster including safety and right tackle, we may not see the Raiders pick a linebacker until day 3 of the 2021 NFL Draft so here are 5 players they can target.
