The 2024 NFL Draft is now officially less than one week away, which should bring excitement to fans of the Las Vegas Raiders. The Raiders, in my opinion, only need a few more pieces in this draft to become a legitimate playoff contender in 2024.

The draft this year is filled with all kinds of talent at all kinds of different positions. With that said, let’s take a look at my top five prospects for the Raiders in Round 1. I believe if they draft any of these five players, they can’t go wrong and will continue heading in the right direction.

Arnold would not only be a great fit for the Raiders defensive scheme, but he’s no doubt one of the fastest and most disruptive cornerbacks in this draft class. I believe the Raiders could land Arnold at pick 13, and it’s rumored that head coach Antonio Pierce is a huge fan of him.

We all know Pierce loves defense, and last year, Arnold was tied for sixth in the FBS with 5 INTs, tied for fifth with 17 passes defended (12 Pass breakups), and started all 14 games.
