With the No. 12 pick in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, here are the top five targets to consider for the Las Vegas Raiders.
Unlike most teams participating in the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft, the Las Vegas Raiders are fortunate enough to have multiple picks in the first round.
Not only do the Raiders hold the No. 12 pick after finishing 7-9 during the 2019 season, but Las Vegas also happens to have the No. 19 pick as well thanks to a previous trade with the Chicago Bears.
So with this in mind, the Raiders are in great shape to address two of their top needs right away early on in the draft, whether it happens to be on offense at wide receiver or simply bringing on help at the cornerback position.
Since plenty could happen before Las Vegas is even on the clock for the first time at No. 12, it can be difficult to determine which players will actually be available for the Raiders.
However, one of the best parts about this time of year is all of the speculation that takes place in regards to trying to predicting which players will end up on certain teams, and Las Vegas is in great position to earn a top playmaker with their first pick of the round.
To say the pressure is on for the Raiders in 2020 would be a huge understatement since part of the reason they hired Jon Gruden two years ago was due to the team appearing to be on the verge of becoming a contender again, only to come up short in each of the last two seasons.
At least with the upcoming draft, Las Vegas has the opportunity to add numerous key rookies to the roster to put the team in better position to finally return to the playoffs for the first time since Gruden’s return as head coach.
For a little fun involving the Raiders, it’s time to take a look at who some of the top targets could be at No. 12 in the upcoming draft, especially since as previously mentioned, there will be plenty of great prospects to choose from.
