3 needs that Las Vegas Raiders must address following NFL Draft
No. 2 – Secondary
The Raiders did their due diligence when it came to defensive backs this year as several prospects would’ve fit with the team. Not having a first or second-round pick hampered their ability to select one of the top-tier talents such as Kaiir Elam, Roger McCreary, or Andrew Booth, who were all gone within the first two rounds.
The team even bypassed late-round prospects such as Bubba Bolden, who met with the Raiders during the NFL Combine. Ziegler opted to add to his offensive line and running back corps rather than drafting a defensive back.
However, he was busy following the draft as he signed cornerback Sam Webb and safety Isaiah Pola-Mao, both undrafted free agents. Considering the amount of youth and inexperience the Raiders have at the moment, adding another veteran safety would be beneficial. Or, maybe the Raiders should pursue James Bradberry once the New York Giants cut him next month. Either way, the secondary remains a need.
