The Las Vegas Raiders have a big need at the wide receiver spot, a position group that will be showcased on Day 1 of the 2022 Combine.
With a new regime in place, the Las Vegas Raiders hit Indianapolis to see the best collegiate prospects the 2022 NFL Draft has to offer. Day 1 of the on-field workouts will kick off today, with the quarterbacks, tight ends, and wide receivers working through drills, and one position group will be key for the team this offseason.
That position group is the wide receivers, as Hunter Renfrow returns to a room that has very little talent returning. Bryan Edwards is back, but Zay Jones and DeSean Jackson are entering free agency, which means a wide receiver on Day 1 or Day 2 is definitely in the cards for the Raiders this draft season.
With so much excitement building in Indy, here is how you can watch all the action on Day 1.

There are plenty of teams ahead of the Raiders that need quarterbacks, which should help key prospects fall to them with the No. 22 overall pick. The tight end room in Las Vegas is led by a dynamic tandem in Darren Waller and Foster Moreau, so an early tight end is not likely in the cards for the Silver and Black either.
New Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels is saying all the right things at this year's NFL Combine, especially with regards to quarterback Derek Carr.
Thursday will be a big day in terms of the Raiders front office getting to see some of their favorite draft targets up close and personal. They are set at quarterback and tight end for the most part, but wide receiver is a monster need, so make sure to tune in and see the best of the best heading into the draft.
