As we get to the final countdown to the 2023 NFL Draft (it starts in nine days), the thoughts on the what the Las Vegas Raiders are shifting.

The focus is on the cornerbacks more than quarterbacks, at least, in the betting community. According to odds set by our friends at DraftKings Sportsbook, the Raiders are favored to take a cornerback in the first round. They have a bet offered for what the position the Raiders are going to use their top pick, No. 7 and currently, the lowest (best) odds are priced at cornerback at +175.

Three weeks ago, cornerback is priced at at +225. Quarterback was the betting favorite at +175. It is now priced at +275. Offensive has moved from +400 to +200, just behind cornerback,

I get the buzz at cornerback. Oregon’s Christian Gonzalez or Illinois’ Devon Witherspoon are both strong bets to be Las Vegas’ pick.
