The 2024 NFL Scouting Combine kicks off this week from Indianapolis, and the Las Vegas Raiders certainly have their work cut out for them. The Raiders go into this season with a brand new general manager at the helm in Tom Telesco, and the veteran will have a solid slate to work with in Year 1.

As we inch closer to the on-field workouts, there are the big names that are out there, though some won't be working out this week. Caleb Williams, Jayden Daniels, and Marvin Harrison Jr. are all expected to be top-5 picks this April, but we won't see any of them this week on the field.

Here, we look at the on-field schedule for this week's Combine, and some players for Raiders fans to watch.

Key positions for the Las Vegas Raiders

The 2024 NFL Draft is going to be an interesting one for the Raiders, and it remains to be seen whether or not they plan to stay at No. 13 overall on Day 1. There are rumors that they could try and trade up for a top quarterback prospect, but right now, that would be a tough task with so many QB-needy teams head of them.

Outside of quarterback, the Raiders have to address the interior of their defensive line, as well as making possible wholesale changes to the offensive line. They need depth at linebacker and tight end, while the defensive backfield is always an area where this franchise should look to get better.

Overall, the haul could be franchise-changing for the Raiders, who have elite players on both sides of the ball, as well as some young guys who really stepped up in 2023. Telesco has his work cut out for him, and hopefully, a veteran presence at the position can net the Raiders better talent, especially on Day 1, then in years past.
