Would Las Vegas be a fit for Georgia quarterback?

There chances are strong that the Las Vegas Raiders will use one of their NFL-high 12 draft picks on a quarterback.

In fact, it would be a surprise if Las Vegas doesn’t select a quarterback in the April 27-29 selection process. In my mind, the only question is in what round do Dave Ziegler and Josh McDaniels identify a quarterback they want to develop in this draft? It could, really, be at No. 7 or on Day Three.

The Raiders are doing a deep dive in all of the draftable quarterbacks and weighing value.

One quarterback who is getting considerable attention in the NFL draft process is Georgia’s Stetson Bennett.

After having a strong performance at the recent NFL combine, Bennett has seen his stock rise. Still, though, there are several factors in play when it comes to Bennett’s scouting process.

Let’s take a closer look at Bennett:

2022 season:

He completed 68.3 percent of his passes for 4,127 yards in 2022. he has 27 touchdown passes with just seven interceptions.

Age issue:

He will turn 26 in October. Los Angeles Chargers Justin Herbert just turned 25. He is entering his fourth NFL season.


Bennett is considered small at 5-foot-11, 192 pounds, but he plays bigger. He is from a football family and he has played his best against the top college competition. He has led his team to two back-to-back national championships and his teammates love his leadership.


There is a lot to like about what Bennett brings to the table. If he is still available, I could see the Raiders (who have eight Day Three picks) showing interest in this player.


Would you be happy if the Raiders drafted Stetson Bennett on Day 3?
