No. 12 overall is the Raiders’ standard selection, after finishing 7-9 in 2019. They’ve had the 12th pick twice in draft history, and took a defensive back from the state of Texas in both years — Patrick Bates out of Texas A&M in 1993, and D.J. Hayden out of Houston in 2013.
The Raiders also pick 19th, a pick they received from the Bears in the Khalil Mack trade. Las Vegas also gets a third-round pick this year — No. 81 overall — from that deal, though that pick will come Friday. The last time the Raiders picked 19th overall was 1974, when they took tackle Henry Lawrence out of Florida A&M, who played his entire 14-year career with the team.
Teams have 10 minutes between picks in the first round.
Five teams have multiple picks in the first round Thursday night: the Raiders, Jaguars, Vikings, 49ers, and Dolphins (Miami has three picks Thursday). Draft coverage begins at 5 p.m. PT, televised on ESPN, NFL Network, and ABC.
