2. Dylan Cole, LB, Texans

Staying in the AFC South for yet another player, how about the Raiders go after Houston Texans linebacker Dylan Cole, who is finally back practicing coming off an ACL injury in 2019?

Cole has not been able to stay healthy in his NFL career, but the flashes he’s shown when on the field have earned the former undrafted player a second contract with the Texans and they obviously believe in him, but Bill O’Brien is always seemingly willing to answer the phone when it comes to trade discussions.

The Texans already have Zach Cunningham and Benardrick McKinney at the inside linebacker positions, giving them one of the best duos in the entire league.

Cole is a nice asset to have behind them and in addition to them, but he could be available for the right price.

The Raiders spent some good money upgrading their linebacker corps this offseason with Cory Littleton coming in from the Rams and Nick Kwiatkoski coming in from the Bears. If Cole could come in and provide them with that third starter to complete the trio.
