The Raiders could go in a few different directions, but I think helping their offensive line has to be a top priority. They made a number of moves in the offseason and their OL will look considerably different in 2021. Vera-Tucker gives them a versatile guy who ideally is a starting guard, but if Brandon Parker struggles at RT, Vera-Tucker could slide out there as well. After fixing the OL in round one, I focused the DL with my next pick. Onwuzurike is a good starter and helps fill a thinner position group for the Raiders. Chazz Surratt probably won’t start as a rookie, but he should contribute and could be a long term cheaper option there. Meinerz is another strong interior OL option, both for this season and the future (particularly if long term Vera-Tucker moves outside). Sage Surratt is a bit of a luxury pick, but I like the value and it’s cool to reuinite him with his brother. The remaining selections are about value and depth.
