The Oakland Raiders have been very busy this offseason, and it all started when they named Jon Gruden their next head coach after their season ending loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. That started off a firestorm of moves for the organization, as general manager Reggie McKenzie tries to remake this roster in Gruden’s image. They have done a nice job filling some holes on the roster, but still have one big one in the middle of their defensive line.
With the tenth overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, the Oakland Raiders should select Vita Vea from Washington. Vea is an incredible specimen, possessing some of the more incredible measurables of any player in this draft class. He is going to be an All-Pro player up front, and the Raiders certainly need someone who can play alongside Justin Ellis next season.
Khalil Mack is one of the better defensive players in football, but he needs someone in the middle of the defensive line to take some of the pressure off of him. Vea is solid against the run, and the pass, and is one of the strongest players available in April. He has Raiders written all over him, but it will be up this organization to make the right move in the first round, and actually bring in someone who can help them right away.
