The Raiders scored big with the first pick from the Khalil Mack trade when they took Alabama running back Josh Jacobs with the No. 24 overall pick in 2019.

Jacobs was an instant star and is a foundation player for the move to Las Vegas. The Raiders also get the No. 19 pick from Chicago as part of the Mack trade, to go along with the No. 12 pick

The Raiders can use the No. 19 or it can trade it up or down. Let’s look at the trade value of it.

Paired with No. 12

Range: No. 3-4

Why: If the Raiders decide to punch in their two first-round picks for a defensive star linebacker Ohio State cornerback Jeff Okudah or Clemson linebacker Isaiah Simmons.

Going up using No. 19 and a third-round pick

Range: No. 15-16

Why: If the Raiders feel like there is a receiver or a cornerback they must get. Of course, it all depends on what they do at No. 12 in this scenario.

Down from 19

Range: A late first-round pick and maybe a third or couple of fourth rounders. If the trading team is in the 25-27, the Raiders could ask for a second-round pick as well.

Why: If the Raiders feel like there is little difference form the player they will get at No. 19 and later in the first-round (and that’s possible). This could be a move to make.
