After a quiet as expected Round 1 of the 2022 NFL Draft, the Las Vegas Raiders were active on Day 2 and addressed key areas with added depth.
The Las Vegas Raiders made noise in the offseason as they trade for arguably the top wide receiver in the NFL: Davante Adams. The opportunity cost came in the form of the Raiders’ first and second-round picks in the 2022 draft, meaning that Vegas largely stood pat during round one Thursday night.
On day two, Las Vegas had their eyes set on the third round as they awaited their first selection at number 86. The new regime of Josh McDaniels and Dave Ziegler has been active in bolstering the roster since their arrival, and the activity continued in round three as they traded back a few spots with the Tennessee Titans.
Tennessee selected Liberty quarterback Malik Willis with the 86th pick, while Vegas acquired the 90th and 169th pick in exchange.
With depth at the offensive line a key priority for the front office, the Raiders selected Dylan Parham, an interior offensive lineman out of Memphis.
