The Las Vegas Raiders filled a few needs via the 2022 NFL Draft, and here, we take a look at what the Week 1 53-man roster could look like.

For the Las Vegas Raiders, it has been another crazy offseason, and it started at the top, as they welcomed in a new general manager. After getting rid of Mike Mayock, team owner Mark Davis brought in David Ziegler, a prodigy from New England who was tasked with creating a roster that would make the Raiders perennial playoff contenders.

Well, to say he swung for the fences would be an understatement, as he traded away the team’s top two draft picks in 2022 for Green Bay Packers star wide receiver Davante Adams. That move reunited Adams with his best friend and Raiders quarterback Derek Carr, who could be in for the best season of his career.

On defense, Ziegler added an All-Pro caliber player in linebacker Chandler Jones, a guy who is going to be trouble for any offense the Silver and Black play this season. Overall, the additions were plentiful and based on what they have now, they are in a much better position than they were a year ago at this time.

Here, we try and take a look at what the 53-man roster could look like after the 2022 NFL Draft, though we all know things could change. We start with the quarterbacks.
