Oakland Raiders Mock Draft: Updated Day 3 Predictions

The Oakland Raiders filled two roster voids at defensive end and tight end on Day 2 of the NFL draft after taking care of wide receiver on Day 1.

The remaining void is at guard, a position currently held by Khalif Barnes. Expect general manager Reggie McKenzie to continue playing it safe and address his final need with the fourth-round pick.

The subsequent picks become the most intriguing of the draft. It’ll reveal where the Raiders’ brass feel they need the most help in terms of depth or competition for the starters.

Will the Raiders draft another cornerback or wide receiver? Both positions have starters in place but lack solid depth or rotational players capable of excelling in extended roles in case of poor play or injury.

Drafting another inside linebacker within the next four picks should be a given, but the rest of the draft could be based on who’s the best player available. I'll identify those players for each of the four remaining rounds for Oakland.
