The 2021 NFL Draft is upon up, and as we make our way across the next three days, our Las Vegas Raiders draft tracker will have all the information you need.

It is officially time for the 2021 NFL Draft to open, and unlike previous years, the Las Vegas Raiders go into the first round with only one selection. The Raiders have had five first-round picks over the last two drafts, and while they brought in some solid talent, it has really only been Josh Jacobs who has made a major impact so far.

Players like Clelin Ferrell, Johnathan Abram, Henry Ruggs III, and Damon Arnette have not proven to be key players yet, though Ferrell had a solid sophomore season in 2020. Ruggs is expected to be a top wideout on this team in 2021, and if the secondary is going to take the next step forward, Arnette and Abram have to be better.

With that said, here is where the Raiders will be selecting after the trade-up for Moehrig on Friday night.

Las Vegas Raiders list of 2021 NFL Draft picks

  • Round 1, Pick No. 17: Alex Leatherwood, OL, Alabama
  • Round 2, Pick No. 43: Trevon Moehrig, S, TCU
  • Round 3, Pick No. 79: Malcolm Koonce, DE, Buffalo
  • Round 3 Pick No. 80: Divine Deablo, S/LB, Virginia Tech
  • Round 4, Pick No. 143: Tyree Gillespie, S, Missouri
  • Round 5, Pick No. 167: Nate Hobbs, CB, Illinois
  • Round 7, Pick No. 230

The NFL Draft is always an exciting time, and while the Raiders currently hold eight selections across the three-day event, you never know what is going to happen when all is said and done. Mike Mayock and Jon Gruden have not been afraid to move up and down after the first round, so continue to check back in on any updates.

Las Vegas holds two picks in both the third and fifth rounds due to the trades they made of Rodney Hudson and Gabe Jackson, and they could always package some of those selections if they want to move up. There are holes on both sides of the ball, so do not be surprised if there are some fireworks on Friday or Saturday.

Continue to check back in as we take you through each selection, grading each player, and seeing where they fit throughout the three-day event. Hopefully, when all is said and done, the Silver and Black will have improved their roster in a big way.
