ESPN -- Rank: 19
Adding Tyree Wilson, who had seven sacks in each of his past two seasons at Texas Tech, to a pass rush that already boasts Maxx Crosby and Chandler Jones, who have a combined 72.5 sacks and four Pro Bowl appearances since 2019, is making a strength even stronger. At least, that's what the Raiders were banking on when they selected Wilson with the No. 7 pick of the draft. A more disruptive pass rush in a division that features star QBs in Patrick Mahomes, Justin Herbert and Russell Wilson is a must for Las Vegas.

Hype man: Josh McDaniels was always going to need at least two years to build his program in earnest. Now he's got his quarterback to bring his scheme to life and the best wide receiver in the division on his side.
Davante Downer: By "his quarterback," you mean Brian Hoyer, right? We both know Garoppolo ain't making it through a full year.
PFF -- Rank: 25
Bennett was a much-needed addition to the Raiders' cornerback room. He allowed a completion on just 44.4% of targets into his coverage in 2022. Given the state of the Raiders' cornerback room prior to the draft, Bennett has a legitimate opportunity to compete for snaps on the outside right out of the gate. Up front, Tyree Wilson joins the tenacious Maxx Crosby and veteran Chandler Jones, who needs to bounce back in 2023.
