Raiders’ Mike Mayock on NFL Draft pick range he likes: ‘I love 20 to 60’
The Oakland Raiders own a slew of first-round NFL Draft picks over the next few seasons. With the Raiders notably picking in the top five of the 2019 NFL Draft, Oakland general manager Mike Mayock could have his eyes on even more draft capital with the event just a few weeks away.
Perhaps tipping his hand, Mayock has publicly stated he would like to pick between 20 and 60 if possible.
“I love 20 to 60. I’d love to get a couple more picks in there,” Mayock recently said, via The Athletic. “I just think we’ve got a lot of holes that need to be filled and I think that’s a really good place to go fishing and if we can, we can.”
The Raiders have already created a busy offseason. In addition to hiring the aforementioned Mike Mayock to run the team’s front office alongside head coach Jon Gruden, the Raiders acquired All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown from the Pittsburgh Steelers. After trading both pass rusher Khalil Mack and wide receiver Amari Cooper last season, it is no secret the Raiders are not afraid to wheel and deal at any point in time, which could make this year’s NFL Draft a busy one for the AFC West franchise.
It is also worth noting that no one is really safe in terms of the team’s current roster, including franchise quarterback Derek Carr.
