Measurements are in, and now it is time for the players to hit the field for Senior Bowl week and the Raiders to begin their draft season evaluations.
The Senior Bowl practices are underway, which signals that we are fully into the draft season, and in an offseason that is huge for the Las Vegas Raiders, they will need to find some capable players in their 2022 draft class. Not that they necessarily need starters right away, although some might; however, the Raiders need to build more depth on their roster.
As some of the best draft prospects look to increase their draft stock, all eyes will be on Mobile, Alabama. The game will take place on Saturday, February 5, but the four days of practice will be most important for these prospects. There will be plenty of matchup drills that will test each position group and give scouts ample opportunity to see how these players fare against the best of the best.
On Monday, the Raiders just had their press conference to introduce new head coach Josh Mcdaniels and new General Manager Dave Ziegler, but it is already time to get to work.
We don’t know exactly what to expect scheme-wise from them at the moment, but in terms of clear roster needs, here are five players we think the Raiders should keep an eye on during Senior Bowl week.
