With barely two months until the NFL Draft, the mock drafts from reporters, sources and insiders continues to grow.  With three picks in the first round, the Raiders draft board will be busy.  We’ll keep track of all the movement right here for you as they are updated.

The Kyler Murray (Jr - QB, Oklahoma) talk is warming up following his announcement he would focus solely on a professional football career.  However, the trend for the Raiders with the fourth pick still seems to move to the defensive side of the ball.  

Michigan DE Rashan Gary continues to top the wish lists of mock draft makers, but Alabama run stopper Quinnen Williams is moving into contention.  The Crimson Tide DT is a difference maker, recording 10 sacks in 24 games – not to mention his 26 tackles for loss.  SB Nation compares him to Rams five-time Pro Bowl DT Aaron Donald.

The 24th and 27th remain a roll of dice, but we’re seeing more offense creep into the conversation. The pair of tight ends out of Iowa are still lined up for the 27th pick.  Alabama RB Josh Jacobs, and two playmaking WRs in D.K. Metcalf (Ole Miss) and Kelvin Harmon (NC State) are now on the board for the #24 slot.
