The Oakland Raiders traded away future Hall of Famer Khalil Mack on September 1, and since then, they have been looking for a pass rush. This past weekend, there was no pass rush to be seen, as Case Keenum had all day to throw for the Denver Broncos, and eventually led his team to a 20-19 comeback victory in front of his home fans.
For the Raiders, they seem to be in a semi-rebuild, as they have the talent to win, but just are not finishing games right now. They will likely be picking in the top-10 with their own pick, and with the pick they got from the Chicago Bears for Mack, they likely could have two picks in the first 10-15 selections.
Early in round one, the Raiders have to address the edge position, which I have them adding Clelin Ferrell from Clemson. WIth their second pick in the first round, they need to bring in some more talent at cornerback, because Rashaan Melvin is only on a one-year deal, and outside of him and Gareon Conley, the Raiders have question marks at the position group.
One of the best cornerbacks in this draft class is DeAndre Baker from Georgia, and he is a guy with great speed, and solid coverage skills. The Raiders picked Conley in the first round back in 2017, so bringing in Baker would give them two young cornerbacks to build their secondary around, as Baker has the talent to be a shutdown guy at the next level.
