NFL Draft countdown: Pay attention to the No. 13 first-round pick by the Raiders…

It will be the NFL Draft in 2024 in just 13 days. The Packers selected DL Lukas Van Ness 13th overall in the previous draft. With the 13th pick this year, Las Vegas is hoping for good fortune. Here is who analysts believe they will accept.

Yates thinks the Raiders can now focus on improving their offensive line after inking former Dolphins defensive tackle Christian Wilkins to a four-year, $110 million contract, pointing out how much better the team’s defence should be.

The Raiders’ rushing assault finished 30th in 2023 with 90.7 yards per game, despite Josh Jacobs, a gifted running back, playing in 13 games for them. Pass protection and Fuaga’s aggressive style should aid with that. In 700 snaps during the previous season, he gave up two quarterback hits, 12 quarterback hurries, and no sacks.

Miller also sees the Raiders trading their 13th pick, this time for a Duck, to Beaver State. He believes that by adding Nix to the mix, the team will provide some early competition for quarterbacks Gardner Minshew and Aidan O’Connell.
