In our first trade, the Raiders move a ton of elite draft capital in both 2024 and 2025 to move up to the No. 2 overall spot. Washington did trade away Sam Howell this offseason, creating a big hole at the quarterback position, but they did add Marcus Mariota to the mix, and he is someone looking to restart his career.

With this trade, the Raiders move not only their first two picks this year, but also their first round pick in the 2025 NFL Draft. That would be a significant move by Tom Telesco, but if Antonio Pierce can get his guy in Jayden Daniels, you have to think he is going to be in his ear to do whatever he can to go get him.

The Raiders have two capable quarterbacks of their own right now in Aidan O'Connell and Gardner Minshew II, so they may just let the two of them battle it out this summer. However, if the Commanders are going to take the call, this would be a lot of draft capital to continue to build their roster under their new ownership.
