The Las Vegas Raiders are going to need big contributions from their 2020 rookie class.

The final chapter for the Oakland Raiders ended with a disappointing third-place finish in the AFC West, and the new era of Las Vegas Raiders football is set to (hopefully) begin in 2020.

The Raiders have a world-class stadium and football facility, and Jon Gruden along with general manager Mike Mayock has been assembling the roster the way they want it to look for the past few offseasons together.

Every year’s draft class is ‘the most important’ to a franchise but despite the annual cliches, the 2020 NFL Draft class is going to be critical for the Raiders.

The foundation has really been established with Gruden re-tooling the roster the way he wants it along with Mayock, and now that the majority of this roster is rebuilt the way those guys want it to be, expectations are going to be rightfully pretty high.

With what the Raiders were able to accomplish in the 2020 offseason, they are one team that is probably chomping at the bit to get all of these new players in the fold and see if what they’ve put together involves all of the right ingredients.

The 2020 rookie class for the Las Vegas is an impressive list of prospects, led by the highest-drafted wide receiver in a class that was considered legendary by NFL Draft evaluators.
