Need #1: Linebacker

With the release of Tahir Whitehead and the impending free agency of Vontaze Burfict, the Raiders will need to add at least two, but possibly even three new starting linebackers to the team this offseason.

Possible Targets

  • Free Agency: Corey Littleton, Joe Schobert, Nick Kwiatkowski, Blake Martinez, Christian Kirksey, Nick Vigil, Sean Lee, Alec Ogletree.
  • Draft: Isaiah Simmons, Patrick Queen, Kenneth Murray, Zack Baun.

Need #2: Wide Receiver

Tyrell Williams is a fine #2 WR and Hunter Renfrow has the slot locked down, but the Raiders need to add an X-Factor #1 WR.

Possible Targets

  • Free Agency: A.J. Green, Robby Anderson, Breshad Perriman, Emmanuel Sanders, Randall Cobb, Paul Richardson, Devin Funchess
  • Draft: Jerry Jeudy, CeeDee Lamb, Henry Ruggs III, Tee Higgins, Laviska Shenault Jr., Jalen Reagor, KJ Hamler

Need #3: Safety

If Karl Joseph leaves as a free agent the Raiders will need to find another starting safety.

Possible Targets

  • Resign: Karl Joseph
  • Free Agency: Ha Ha Clinton Dix, Devin McCourty, Damarious Randall, Tony Jefferson
  • Draft: Grant Delpit, Xavier McKinney

Need #4: Cornerback

The Raiders need to upgrade the depth chart behind Trayvon Mullen.

  • Draft: Trevon Diggs, Kristian Fulton, C.J Henderson

Need #5: Defensive Tackle

The Raiders defensive tackle unit underwhelmed in 2019 and could use an upgrade.

Possible Targets

  • Free Agency: Chris Jones, Arik Armstead, DJ Reader, Leonard Williams, Javon Hargrave, Maliek Collins, Michael Brockers, Quinton Jefferson, Timmy Jernigan
  • Draft: Javon Kinlaw, Ross Blacklock, Neville Gallimore

Need #6: Quarterback

The Raiders could do worse (a lot worse) than Derek Carr, but if the right QB opportunity comes along - they could look to upgrade.

Possible Targets

  • Free Agency: Tom Brady, Teddy Bridgewater, Jameis Winston
  • Draft: Tua Tagovailoa, Justin Herbert, Jordan Love, Jacob Eason, Jalen Hurts, Jake Fromm

Need #7: Kicker

Daniel Carlson only made 73% of his field goals in 2019, he needs to compete for the kicking job in 2020.

Possible Targets

  • Free Agency: Greg Zuerlein, Dan Bailey
  • Draft: Rodrigo Blankenship
