The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Raiders:
Pro Football Network - DiCecco (6/7)
9) Las Vegas Raiders: Jamie Newman, QB Georgia
Newman, an immensely talented athlete with a strong arm and developing pocket presence, is likely poised for college football stardom at Georgia. If he's able to seamlessly integrate himself to Todd Monken's offense in his lone season in Athens, it will be enticing for Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock to add him to the revamped Raiders offense.
Fox Sports - McIntyre (6/7)
7. Las Vegas Raiders -- Brock Purdy, QB, Iowa State
If the Raiders are this bad it means two things: Derek Carr and Marcus Mariota are definitely not the answer for Jon Gruden. Maybe something crazy happens in 2021 free agency and Dak Prescott hits the market, but in the absence of chaos, Gruden will be targeting a QB. In four games against ranked teams last year, Purdy threw 8 TDs and had just one interceptions. But the Cyclones went just 1-3 in those games.
Walter Football (5/19)
14. Las Vegas Raiders: Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama
It was shocking that the Raiders didn't select Patrick Queen at No. 19 overall. Perhaps they'll obtain a linebacker here instead.
Dylan Moses, a former five-star recruit, missed a chunk of his freshman campaign, but was very productive as a sophomore. Unfortunately, he tore his ACL.
CBS Sports - Edwards (5/12)
12. Las Vegas Raiders: Trey Smith, OL, Tennessee
Smith is an athletic, aggressive lineman who can take over for Gabe Jackson. Jon Gruden finally gets a chance to coach a Volunteer.
CBS Sports - Trapasso (5/4)
8. Las Vegas Raiders: Jamie Newman, QB, Georgia
Newman is set up wonderfully to blossom at Georgia, and he has an early first round skill set with fantastic size and athleticism.
PFF - Renner (4/30)
9. Las Vegas Raiders -- DI Marvin Wilson, FSU
Wilson was on pace for a monster junior campaign before breaking his hand against Miami and going down for the year. He could have been a fringe first-rounder had he declared, but he returned in hopes of a Derrick Brown-esque stock increase. Wilson earned a 90.9 pass-rushing grade on the season and looks like a complete modern nose tackle.
San Diego Union Tribune (4/29)
9. Las Vegas (50/1) -- Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State
The adage is: if you have two quarterbacks, you have none. Can Fields improve upon being a finalist for the Heisman Trophy with 41 touchdown passes against only three interceptions?
SI - Hanson (4/27)
9. Las Vegas Raiders: Micah Parsons, LB, Penn State
The former five-star recruit has been a dominant playmaker for the Nittany Lions since he stepped on campus. In his true sophomore campaign, Parsons led the team with 109 tackles, including 14 for loss, to go along with five sacks, five passes defended and four forced fumbles. What's next for 2020? Kickoff returns? While he's no longer listed
as the team's top kickoff returner, the idea of it points to his special athleticism at 244 pounds.
Bleacher Report - Miller (4/27)
16. Las Vegas Raiders -- CB Shaun Wade, Ohio State
The Raiders added all types of speed on offense in 2020's draft and also grabbed a physical cornerback in Ohio State's Damon Arnette. Since we all know how much Mike Mayock loves the Buckeyes prospects, he goes right back to the well for an upgrade at outside cornerback in Shaun Wade.
Wade almost entered the 2020 draft and would have been a first-rounder. Instead, he returns to Columbus with a chance to be the first cornerback off the board in 2021 thanks to his speed, playmaking skills and instincts in coverage.
SB Nation - Kadar (4/27)
9. Las Vegas Raiders: Jamie Newman, QB, Georgia
The Derek Carr speculation seems to never go away -- and 2020 could be a breaking point. Carr's contract is much more manageable after this season. A graduate transfer from Wake Forest, Newman is excellent on run-pass options and has a strong arm.
The Athletic - Brugler (4/27)
9. Las Vegas Raiders -- *Tyler Shelvin, DT, LSU
It was impossible not to notice Shelvin when studying LSU's defense last season. He needs to show more impact as a pass rusher this season, but with his size and power, he dominates the point of attack and shuts down the run.
