In trade No. 2, we turn our attention to the No. 4 overall pick, a draft slot that is currently held by the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals are the only team picking in the top-4 who has an actual franchise quarterback on the roster, though the jury is still out on Kyler Murray and his potential moving forward.

With this trade, the Raiders once again trade away their top-2 picks in the 2024 NFL Draft, but only have to send away a second round pick next year. That would enable the Raiders to secure at least JJ McCarthy this April, adding him to the position group to either start right away, or learn behind two veterans in O'Connell and Minshew.

Pierce has had glowing things to say about McCarthy recently, and if he is the fourth quarterback available, I could see the Raiders trading up to try and get him. Murray is a solid NFL quarterback, who has had success at the NFL level, so the Cardinals could continue to build around him moving forward.
