Las Vegas Raiders 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 8.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our Las Vegas Raiders Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Las Vegas Raiders from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

For a more inclusive lists of mock drafts for the Las Vegas Raiders, check out our 2021 Las Vegas Raiders Mock Draft Database.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Raiders:

EDSFootball - Hanson (4/1)

17. Teven Jenkins, OT, Oklahoma State

The Raiders just extended left tackle Kolton Miller through the 2025 season, but they traded right tackle Trent Brown back to New England earlier this offseason. While Jenkins has experience at left tackle as well, he was primarily a right tackle as a three-year starter for Oklahoma State. An absolute bully in the run game, he would slide in as a Day 1 starter opposite Miller.

ESPN - McShay (4/1)

17. Trevon Moehrig, S, TCU

The Raiders were one of seven teams to allow north of 260 passing yards per game last season. In a division with Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert, that's a significant issue. Moehrig is the class's top safety and has terrific ball skills, which might help improve the Raiders' total of 10 interceptions in 2020. Las Vegas could also look at Christian Darrisaw (Virginia Tech) or Alijah Vera-Tucker if he is still available after dismantling its offensive line over the past month.

Baltimore Sun - Doon (3/31)

17. Alijah Vera-Tucker, IOL, USC

The Raiders overhauled their offensive line, trading away right tackle Trent Brown, center Rodney Hudson and guard Gabe Jackson in a matter of weeks. Vera-Tucker would help fill one of those holes as Las Vegas revamps its roster ahead of coach Jon Gruden's fourth season.

EDSFootball - Donahue (3/29)

17. Micah Parsons, LB, Penn State

Parsons has some character concerns so that's how a player with Parsons' talent could fall to No. 17. But we've seen Gruden and Mayock get enamored with "eye-popping" draft prospects and most likely won't let him fall past here as he is the type of versatile and dynamic linebacker that can play all three downs that they have been looking for.

San Diego Union Tribune (3/29)

17. Trevon Moehrig, S, TCU

The Raiders must address their atrocious secondary. Moehrig-Woodard's skillset is scheme-proof. He's a hard hitter who led all safeties in pass breakups in each of the past two seasons.

L.A. Times - Farmer (3/29)

17. Christian Darrisaw, OT, Virginia Tech

The Raiders traded tackle Trent Brown, guard Gabe Jackson and center Rodney Hudson, so their line is in rebuild mode.

New York Post - Serby (3/27)

17. Gregory Rousseau, EDGE, Miami (FL)

After the 2020 Raiders registered just 21 sacks, help, in the form of a raw 6-foot-7, 265-pounder opposite Maxx Crosby, arrives for defensive coordinator Gus Bradley.

The Ringer - Kelly (3/26)

17. Jaelan Phillips, EDGE, Miami (FL)

The Raiders beefed up their pass-rush group in free agency, signing Yannick Ngakoue to a two-year, $26 million contract and adding the underrated Quinton Jefferson on a one-year deal. But Las Vegas should not stop there: Why not turn a roster weakness into a strength by bringing in another edge-rushing menace like Phillips? The Miami standout offers a scintillating combination of length and athleticism, and has the talent to line up at multiple spots on new defensive coordinator Gus Bradley's line.

Newsday - Klopsis (3/26)

16. Jaycee Horn, CB, South Carolina

Patrick Peterson left for the Vikings and Dre Kirkpatrick remains unsigned, and although the Cardinals brought in Malcolm Butler, there's still not much depth. Jaycee Horn --the son of former NFL receiver Joe Horn -- is a lengthy outside corner who thrives in physical, press coverage.
