The Las Vegas Raiders enter the 2020 NFL Draft with seven picks, with two first round picks, 12th and 19th overall. The Raiders traded away Khalil Mack, second- and sixth-round picks to the Chicago Bears for for a first rounder in 2019 and another in 2020 along with third- and sixth-round picks. Their final pick is in the fifth round at No. 159 overall.
The Raiders were active in free agency as they upgraded their defense with linebackers Cory Littleton, Nick Kwiatkoski and Carl Nassib and upgraded their backup quarterback with Marcus Mariota. Those acquisitions helped fill some holes, but cornerback and wide receiver are still big needs which they will likely look to fill with their two top picks.
