Raiders draft picks 2024: When does Las Vegas pick? Full list of NFL Draft selections

After an 8-9 season that saw them fall just short of the playoffs, the Las Vegas Raiders are looking to build on their strong finish to the 2023 campaign. One way to help their chances is to bolster their roster in the 2024 NFL Draft.

The Raiders are embarking on a new era after the team hired a new full-time head coach in Antonio Pierce — who had success in the interim role last year — and general manager Tom Telesco, both of whom will be taking part in their first draft in their respective positions in Las Vegas.

Las Vegas has a strong stable of picks in 2024, with the team having at least one selection in each round, including the No. 13 overall pick. The Raiders also have a pair of picks in the seventh round.

Many fans are clamoring for a franchise quarterback, but the Raiders have a few different ways they could go in the early rounds, with right tackle and cornerback also being at the top of the Raiders’ list of needs.

The Sporting News is tracking the Raiders’ 2024 NFL Draft selections, from Round 1 to 7. Follow along with the picks below.

Raiders NFL Draft needs

Cornerback: The Raiders are set at one boundary spot and in the slot with Jack Jones and Nate Hobbs, respectively, but they need someone opposite Jones after the departure of Amik Robertson. In a passing league and with the Raiders in the same division as Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert, taking a cornerback in the first two rounds is very much on the table.

Right tackle: The departure of Jermaine Eluemunor leaves Thayer Munford as Las Vegas’ best option to start at right tackle, which is less than ideal, as Munford struggled mightily in pass protection last season. This is another position the Raiders could use an early-round selection on.

Quarterback: Las Vegas is set to have a competition between Gardner Minshew and Aidan O’Connell, but neither is a true difference-maker at the position. The Raiders need someone who can be a long-term answer and, more importantly, put them over the top as a true Super Bowl contender. Anything and everything should be on the table for the Raiders with the most important position in the NFL.

Guard: The signing of Cody Whitehair is a nice insurance policy, but the 31-year-old interior lineman, who is coming off a down season, is hardly a sure and long-term solution for Las Vegas. This is another priority position for the Raiders, although things aren’t as dire after the Whitehair signing.

Wide receiver: This is a lesser need for Las Vegas, seeing as how they have a solid trio in Davante Adams, Jakobi Meyers and Tre Tucker, but depth is sorely needed behind those three. Look for Vegas to possibly spend a mid- to late-round pick on the position.
