The Las Vegas Raiders jumped from the 4th overall pick to 9th after another dramatic overtime win in Week 12. Let’s take a look at who the Raiders could select in our Week 13 mock draft
The Las Vegas Raiders continue their trend of playing exciting one-score games and for the second week in a row, they came out victorious. A walk-off touchdown pass to Davante Adams in Week 11 was followed by an incredible 86-yard touchdown run by Josh Jacobs to seal the game and drop the Raiders from the 4th overall pick to 9th.
This current draft position likely takes the Raiders out of contention for the top QBs in the class and some of the top defensive players but as we have seen in the past, it’s not about where you draft but who you draft.
The best defensive player on the Raiders is a 4th round pick and their franchise-leading QB was taken in the second round so regardless of draft position, there is plenty of talent available.
The Raiders currently own 10 picks in the 2023 NFL Draft with three of those coming in the sixth round and a few other late-round selections coming through trades. Regardless of when these picks are, the Raiders will likely focus on the defensive side of the ball as that unit is in desperate need of improvement.
With this in mind and with the ever-shifting draft landscape from week to week, let’s dive into a mock draft ahead of the Raiders Week 13 matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers.
