The Las Vegas Raiders need help in multiple areas, and this 2022 mock draft helps bolster the roster.

It was a very good start for the Las Vegas Raiders in 2021, as the 3-0 start included victories over the AFC North-leading Baltimore Ravens, and two teams in the playoff hunt in the Steelers and Dolphins. They also have wins over the Broncos and Cowboys, but they’ve lost five of their last six games, including two beatdowns at the hands of the Chiefs and two rough losses against Washington and the Giants.

The turn the Raiders have taken really started with losing their head coach and top deep threat at midseason. An offense that was thriving on explosive plays has struggled to find them in recent weeks. Gus Bradley’s defense has been gutted by the Chiefs and Bengals recently, and the personnel in the secondary isn’t up to par right now.

With the 2022 NFL Draft starting to become a focus for fans in a tight AFC race, the Las Vegas Raiders will be looking to reignite their offense with Derek Carr still at the helm. There’s a possibility that a few elite receivers could reach free agency and help them out, but there are no guarantees at this point.

As for the secondary, finding a true CB1 should be high on the priority list. The good news is that the draft is expected to be extremely deep at the position. Hopefully, they can find their guy at a position that has eluded them in the draft recently.
