Las Vegas Raiders 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 9.0

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 (4/15)

17. Teven Jenkins, OT, Oklahoma State

The Raiders recently 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.

Fox Sports - Rang (4/15)

17. Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, LB, Notre Dame

Quite frankly, the Raiders lacked difference-making speed in the back half of their defense in 2020. General manager Mike Mayock, a former NBC announcer for Notre Dame games, will likely know and appreciate Owusu-Koromoah's game as much as anyone.

CBS Sports - Jones (4/14)

14. Jaycee Horn, CB, South Carolina

Trade details: Raiders give up first-rounder (No. 17) and third-rounder (No. 79). Perhaps no team is more unpredictable in the draft than the Raiders. Of course they need a right tackle, but the defense needs more help than anything. Do you think Jon Gruden is going to turn away from a 6-foot-1, 205-pound cornerback with NFL bloodlines???

Washington Post - Clayton (4/14)

17. Teven Jenkins, OT, Oklahoma State

Even though defense remains the primary need for the Raiders, Jenkins could come in and start ahead of Brandon Parker at right tackle. The Raiders need to restock their offensive line after trading away three starters.

The Athletic - Brugler (4/14)

17. Christian Darrisaw, OT, Virginia Tech

A playmaking linebacker (Micah Parsons or Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah) or defensive lineman (Christian Barmore) would make sense, but Darrisaw would help fill the sizeable void left by the departure of right tackle Trent Brown.

Yahoo Sports! - Edholm (4/13)

17. Teven Jenkins, OT, Oklahoma State

For many teams, Jenkins might grade out close to the late first, early second-round range. But GM Mike Mayock hasn't been afraid to reach for players with a lower league value for what they view as an ideal fit. Jenkins is big, nasty, smart and competitive, and he has played four different OL spots. For the Raiders he could be a Day 1 starter at right tackle, currently a big void.

ESPN - Kiper (4/13)

17. Alijah Vera-Tucker, IOL, USC

The Raiders overhauled their offensive line this offseason, trading away tackle Trent Brown, guard Gabe Jackson and center Rodney Hudson. Maybe general manager Mike Mayock and coach Jon Gruden knew they could address the O-line in Round 1 because it's a deep class, but they still have voids to fill. Vera-Tucker is my top-ranked guard, but he really came into his own while playing left tackle for the Trojans last season. He could play either spot for Las Vegas. - Schrager (4/8)

17. Greg Newsome, CB, Northwestern

This could be higher than other mock drafts have Newsome going, but I think teams are higher on the Northwestern CB than the rest of our "draft media" world. He is smart, tough and brings a professionalism to the field. The Raiders will be looking to continue their offseason trend: beefing up the defense.
