The Las Vegas Raiders should have an eventful 2020 NFL Draft upcoming in late April. We take a look at one possible scenario in this mid-February seven-round mock draft.
With the Raiders now officially the Las Vegas Raiders entering year one in a brand new state-of-the-art stadium, this offseason is extra exciting for fans of the Silver and Black.
General manager Mike Mayock, head coach Jon Gruden, and the scouting staff killed the draft last year, with all but a couple of players getting significant playing time.
The Raiders may not have a second-round pick this year, but they do have two firsts and three thirds. And if Mayock can work the same magic he did last year, this draft can be what catapults the team into a playoff contender.
It’s important to remember that free agency comes before the draft, so some of the holes the team seems to have at this point won’t be holes by the time we get to April.
Its also important to keep in mind that the NFL Combine is yet to happen, so draft projections will change drastically by the time we do get to the draft.
I conducted this mock draft using the first-pick.com mock simulator, so the picks are based on what I would do, not based on what I think the team is going to do.
Here is a full overview of the mock draft so you can see what the computer-controlled teams did with their picks and who was available during the picks I made.
With that being said, let’s get into this mid-February version of a complete seven-round mock draft.
