Raiders: 2023 first-round draft prospects Las Vegas could trade down for
Paris Johnson Jr., OT, Ohio State
Once again, the Las Vegas Raiders got mixed results up front along the offensive line, as they played horribly at times, and then improved down the stretch. The right tackle position was a mixed bag for most of the season, as Jermaine Eluemenor and Thayer Munford rotated throughout the year.
In 2023, the team may be looking to add some stability to that position, as Eluemenor is going to be a free agent, and Munford is more of a swing tackle at this point. There are two big-time offensive tackle prospects in this draft class that are expected to go 1-2 in terms of their position group, and that is Paris Johnson Jr. of Ohio State, and Peter Skoronski from Northwestern.
Here, we take a look at Johnson, who played left tackle for a CFP participant this past season, but has the versatility to play inside as well. The Raiders need to start stacking good offensive linemen, whether they are going to start from Day 1, or not, and Johnson has plug-and-play ability at the right tackle spot as a rookie.
