The Las Vegas Raiders locked down the #12 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Despite the success of Hunter Renfrow, Tyrell Williams and Keelan Doss this season, the Raiders still lack a true WR 1. In Tom Downey’s latest 2019 NFL Mock Draft, he’s projecting the Raiders to draft Jerry Jeudy, WR from Alabama with the #12 pick.
Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock hold two draft picks inside the Top 20, thanks to the Khalil Mack trade. The Raiders possess the #12 pick and the #19 pick. Tom projects the Las Vegas Raiders taking a CB, Trevon Diggs, with their second 1st round pick. Diggs fits the mold of what teams want at QB and gives the Raiders some much needed depth in the secondary.
Jerry Jeudy gives the Raiders and Derek Carr the WR 1 they so desperately need. With CeeDee Lamb already off the board, Jeudy was a no-brainer for the Raiders draft pick. Jeudy is a better route runner than Lamb and he had 71 receptions for 959 yards and 9 touchdowns in the 2019 regular season.
