We close out 2024 7-round Raiders mock with a tight end, as Tanner McLachlan from Arizona is available here in the seventh round. McLachlan stands 6-foot-5, possessing a dominant presence from his tight end position, and is someone who could rocket up draft boards this offseason.

For now, McLachlan's ceiling is a Day 3 draft pick, and he would be an excellent complement to Michael Mayer at tight end going forward. A former walk-on, McLachlan is a very athletic tight end, and has the ability to get open, setting Arizona's record for most receptions by a tight end in school history.

The Raiders will have a need at this position group if Austin Hooper leaves via free agency, but Mayer will be the unquestioned TE1 going into Year 2. Mayer has the potential to be a breakout star for Las Vegas in 2024, but as we saw with Darren Waller, the team must keep depth behind him to keep him healthy.
