Las Vegas Raiders Mock Draft Roundup 1.0
Throughout the year and leading up to the 2023 NFL Draft, we will update our Las Vegas Raiders Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Las Vegas Raiders from several prominent sites and draft analysts.
The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Raiders:
The Athletic - Dane Brugler (5/3)
13. Paris Johnson Jr., OT, Ohio State
Next year's offensive tackle class doesn't look particularly strong right now, and the "OT1" spot is wide open. The Buckeyes' starting right guard in 2021, Johnson is expected to move out to tackle as a junior in 2022, and scouts will be watching him closely.
Draft Wire - Luke Easterling (5/3)
14. Kelee Ringo, CB, Georgia
This defense could use a shutdown, big-play corner to take advantage of their relentless pass rush. Ringo sealed the Bulldogs' national title with an epic pick-six, and could bring more of the same to Vegas.
Fox Sports - Jason McIntyre (5/3)
12. Jalen Carter, IDL, Georgia
All three starters on Georgia's 2021 defensive line were drafted in the top 50, and that means Carter ascends to a starting role and, likely, an All-American nod.
PFF - Michael Renner (5/2)
16. Trenton Simpson, LB, Clemson
Simpson is a former 2020 five-star recruit who showed out in his first year as a starter in 2021. He has sideline-to-sideline ability at 6-foot-3, 225 pounds. As it stands now, his best reps come as a blitzer, where he had 31 pressures last season.
CBS - Ryan Wilson (5/2)
12. Bryan Bresee, IDL, Clemson
Steady as she goes' feels like the draft philosophy of the new Raiders regime, which is noteworthy days after the team chose not to exercise the fifth-year options of any of their three first-rounders from the 2019 class. Either way, Bresee solidifies the middle of the defensive line in a division where getting off the field is at a premium.
The Draft Network - Joe Marino (4/30)
14. Bryan Bresee, IDL, Clemson
The Raiders roster is coming together nicely under new general manager Dave Zeigler but the interior defensive line remains a concern. Bresee is a special talent that features an exciting blend of power and athleticism.
The 33rd Team - Michael Schottey (4/30)
16. Kelee Ringo, CB, Georgia
If I was betting right now on the top CB to be taken in the 2023 NFL Draft, Ringo would probably get my hard earned cash. He's sticky in coverage with good ball skills and has made big plays in big spots for the Bulldogs.
Pro Football Network - Cam Mellor (4/30)
15. Myles Murphy, EDGE, Clemson
It was a down year for the Clemson Tigers in the 2022 NFL Draft, but that will change this time around. Myles Murphy is dominant at the point of contact and can use his strength to bully smaller tackles on the edge.
He can also stunt and use his speed to bend around the edge all the same. Pairing Murphy's speed and strength combination with Maxx Crosby on the Las Vegas Raiders' front is terrifying for AFC West quarterbacks.
Barstool Sports - Steven Cheah (4/30)
16. Trenton Simpson, LB, Clemson
This is of course assuming Will Compton announces his retirement after this upcoming season.
