The NFL Draft is only days away now.

Let’s have some fun and do a full seven-round mock draft for the Raiders. This is without trades, with the picks as they currently stand. Obviously a lot can change between now and Thursday.

Let’s get started.


1st Round: Pick No. 12 - CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma

If one of the top three wide receivers are available at 12, it’s tough to see the Raiders passing on any of them. If Lamb is available, you snag him up, and personally reach out to the teams in front of you for not taking him.

1st Round: Pick No. 19 - Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia

There are four really, really, really good offensive lineman in this draft. Andrew Thomas is one of them. Although it may be a long-shot for him to be sitting on the board at No. 19, we could see an abundance of receivers and quarterbacks go early that can really shake up the draft. Not to mention other picks that catch everyone by surprise. If he falls to 19, it’s a no-brainer.

3rd Round: Pick No. 80 - Bryce Hall, CB, Virginia

The Raiders might very well draft a cornerback in the first round, or try and trade up to get one. If they stand pat, there’s a very solid chance that Bryce Hall will be sitting there when the third round rolls around. Hall’s draft stock took a significant hit as a left ankle injury led to him missing the remainder of the season in 2019.

While at Virginia he racked up 154 tackles, including 9.5 for loss. He had five interceptions, three forced fumbles, and 38 pass breakups, including an NCAA-leading 21 in 2018.

3rd Round: Pick No. 81 - Curtis Weaver, DE, Boise State

One of the more underrated defenders in this draft. Curtis Weaver was a one-man wrecking crew while at Boise State. In his three seasons he had 128 tackles, including 47.5 for loss and 34 sacks.

This pick screams Maxx Crosby to me. Could the Raiders pull it off for the second year in a row?

3rd Round: Pick No. 91 - Willie Gay Jr., LB, Mississippi State

The talent is there, but off-the-field issues cost Willie Gay Jr. half of his season in 2019. In three seasons at Mississippi State, Gay Jr. totaled 99 tackles, with 11 coming for loss. He had three interceptions, four pass break-ups and a forced fumble.

He ran a 4.46 40-yard dash at the combine, which was the second fastest among linebackers.

4th round: Pick No. 121 - Antoine Brooks Jr., S, Maryland

This is a guy who makes his presence known on the field, and his personality would fit the Raiders perfectly. Absolutely dominated while at Maryland, finishing with 232 tackles and 27.5 tackles for loss. There’s some question as to which position he’ll fit best in the NFL, as there are discussions of him playing either linebacker or safety. With that being said, there’s no denying his tremendous upside.

5th round: Pick No. 159 - Antonio Gibson, RB, Memphis

Antonio Gibson is an interesting name to keep an eye on. He did it all while at Memphis, playing receiver, running back and returned kicks. In his two years, he racked up 1,800 total yards and 15 touchdowns. He’s 6’0” and 228 lbs, and ran a 4.39 40-yard dash at the combine.
