Raiders 2022 7-round NFL Mock Draft: Las Vegas fixes OT problem early
By Brad Weiss
The Las Vegas Raiders hold seven selections in the 2022 NFL Draft, and here, we take a look at what their haul could be when all is said and done.
We have come to the point in the offseason where the eyes of the NFL world, including the Las Vegas Raiders, will turn to the NFL Draft. The Silver and Black have had their struggles early in the draft under Mike Mayock, but with a new general manager in place, their early-round fortunes may change.
Under Mayock, the Raiders were able to strike gold on Day 3, a trend that hopefully continues under David Ziegler, the team’s new general manager. He and new head coach Josh McDaniels came over to the Raiders franchise from New England, which has a rich history of putting playoff teams on the field year in and year out.
Ziegler’s first go will come in late April, and the hope is that he has brought in some talent via free agency before then, leaving the Raiders with lesser holes to fill. Las Vegas finally made it back to the playoffs for only the second time since the 2002 season, and cannot afford to take a step backward in 2022.
