The 2023 NFL Draft is two months away, and for the Las Vegas Raiders, figuring out whether to stay at No. 7 overall, or move out, is priority No. 1.
As of February 10, 2023, the Las Vegas Raiders hold the No. 7 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. After not picking until the third round last year, this is the biggest selection of general manager David Ziegler’s short stint at the helm of the franchise, so he has to get it right.
Here, we look at our latest 2023 NFL full first-round mock draft.
2023 Full first-round NFL Mock Draft: Raiders stay put at No. 7 overall
The Chicago Bears hold the No. 1 overall pick, and with them keeping Justin Fields as their franchise quarterback, they will be looking to move out of this selection. However, as of this date, they are still picking first, and with it, they get the best overall player in this draft class, Will Anderson from Alabama.
Chicago has long been built on defense, and in Anderson, they get the kind of edge rusher they were hoping Khalil Mack would have been when they got him from the Raiders back in 2018.
