The Las Vegas Raiders made some nice moves at the linebacker spot this offseason, but the biggest was the trade they made for Denzel Perryman right before the season started. In his first season with the Silver and Black, Perryman has gone back to being a Pro Bowl-caliber player and is in line to make the Pro Bowl this season.
Perryman is a tackling machine, but outside of him, there are some real questions when it comes to the linebacker spot next season. Cory Littleton has not worked out since being given so much money to come to Las Vegas from the Los Angeles Rams, and Nicholas Morrow is entering a free agency year.
That brings us to the Raiders’ second-round pick in this mock draft in the player of Christian Harris from Alabama. Harris is incredibly athletic and plays like a heat-seeking missile, so having him teamed with Perryman and whoever is back in 2022 would upgrade the Raiders at the linebacker spot significantly.
