With the Oakland Raiders coaching the 2019 Senior Bowl North team, it only made sense to take another look at how they could spend their first-round picks during the 2019 NFL Draft.

In possession of three first-round picks, the Oakland Raiders are primed to do some serious damage during the 2019 NFL Draft. It took serious sacfrice last year, but the door is now open for Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock to make a splash come April 25.

As is customary, we’ll be putting together plenty of mock drafts for the Raiders in the coming months. Doing so gives us an opportunity to speculate on how Gruden will use those three picks, as well as giving you a better sense of the varying directions this club could go in.

Right now, the timing matches perfectly with the 2019 Senior Bowl. One of the premier pre-draft events, the Raiders are actually taking part in the festivities, currently coaching the North team in preparation for Saturday’s game. That provides the ideal setting for this latest Raiders first-round mock draft.

Now keep in mind — not all of the players included in this mock draft are participating in the Senior Bowl. The event is meant to give upperclassmen an opportunity to showcase their skills against some of the country’s top talent, but elite prospects don’t often attend. Rest assured, there is at least one player included who will be hitting the field in Mobile on Saturday.
