The Las Vegas Raiders are very much in the mix for a playoff spot this season, but here, we look at what their 2022 NFL Draft class could look like.
This Sunday, the Las Vegas Raiders will battle it out against the Washington Football Team in a must-win game for both teams. While the WFT have the No. 7 seed in the NFC right now, meaning they would make the playoffs if the season ended tomorrow, the Raiders are on the outside looking in, holding spot No. 8 in the AFC.
As the Raiders look to avoid a second-half collapse for the third straight season, it is never too early to take a look at the prospects who are coming in via the 2022 NFL Draft. Las Vegas still has a ton of work to do in terms of the roster, thanks to the fact that some draft picks and free-agent signings have worked out, but others have been huge mistakes.
For now, we shift our focus to the 2022 NFL Draft, and try and figure out which eight players will be the newest Las Vegas Raiders next April. The needs are prevalent on both sides of the ball, and filling at least some of those via the draft is paramount.
