The Las Vegas Raiders only had a handful of picks to work with at this year’s NFL Draft, meaning there’s still some work to be done.
No one can fault Raiders general manager Dave Ziegler for giving up this year’s first and second-round draft picks; they, after all, helped land superstar receiver, Davante Adams. If you have the chance to acquire a game-changing talent such as that, you do it.
Well, as long as it doesn’t require an astronomical or ridiculous amount of draft capital. The one caveat to giving up that many picks is that you then turn to free agency to help fill out certain needs.
For Las Vegas, there are still needs on both sides of the ball, but the roster is a lot better than it was at this time last year. Ziegler and his staff have done an outstanding job bringing in elite talent, as guys like Adams, and Chandler Jones are game-changers, but there is still some work left to be done.
The Raiders still have a few deficiencies on their roster that will require an addition or two. Let’s take a look.
