After months and months of build-up, the first round has come and gone. To no surprise, the Raiders selected a wide receiver with their first pick. It was a bit of a surprise to see the three top guys still available, though. Ultimately, they decided to go with Henry Ruggs III, the speedster out of Alabama.
Their second pick, No. 19 in the draft, received some backlash. Las Vegas selected cornerback Damon Arnette out of Ohio State. Many view it as a reach, but I’m fairly certain Mike Mayock and Jon Gruden know what they’re doing.
Anyways, time to move on to the next rounds and what’s in store for the Raiders. As of right now, the Raiders don’t currently own any second round picks, and aren’t on the clock until pick No. 81. With three third rounders, don’t be surprised if the Raiders try and trade up into the second round. There’s a high number of talented players available still, arguably one of the deeper second rounds in recent memory.
Here are five players that are still on the board that the Raiders should consider trading up for.
Zach Baun, LB - Wisconsin
Grant Delpit, S - LSU
Xavier McKinney, S - Alabama
Laviska Shenault Jr., WR - Colorado
Yetur Gross-Matos, DE - Penn State
