3 positions Las Vegas Raiders can fix immediately with pick No. 22 overall
This offseason, the Raiders got a gem of a player with the free-agent signing of Casey Hayward Jr., who played at a high level for the team all year long. Also, fifth-round pick Nate Hobbs proved to be an elite talent, becoming another Day 3 steal for general manager Mike Mayock as the team’s starting slot corner.
Trayvon Mullen was battling injuries all season long, and it is still unclear if he is going to be the kind of CB1 this team has been lacking for so long. Like wide receiver, there is a ton of first-round talent at the cornerback spot, and even if Hayward comes back next season, the Silver and Black must address this position group early.
The big question is who will be the Raiders head coach in 2022, but one thing is for sure, whoever it is is getting some blue-chip players to coach.
There are plenty of excellent options in the first round for the Raiders to fix all three of these position groups. It remains to be seen who the general manager will be in 2022, but one thing is for sure, whoever takes over has to do a better job in the first round.
