There isn’t any doubt that the Las Vegas Raiders’ most pressing need on defense is getting a better pass rush.

It is the team’s biggest overall hole and fewer teams in the NFL need to add something this offseason like the Raiders need to add pass rushers.

But, what about the rest of the defense? What area would you like to see Las Vegas put the most attention, whether it’s on the free-agent market or early in the April draft.

There are plenty of options. The Raiders have a need for an interior force on the defensive line, they could use another coverage linebacker, a veteran cornerback may be nice, and getting a safety to pair with Johnathan Abram should be at the top of the list as well.

Take our poll and express the reasons for the way you voted in the comments section below.

Thanks for playing along.


Other than pass rusher, what defensive position do you most want to see the Raiders add?
