Round 1, Pick #24: Jaylon Ferguson, EDGE, Louisiana Tech
The Raiders defense has a lot of needs. While in this scenario they did draft Quinnen Williams, they still need an EDGE defender to try and replace Khalil Mack. This is literally the pick that the Raiders received from Chicago in exchange for Mack and in this scenario they draft someone to try and fill his shoes. I would not be surprised at all if the Raiders take at least two, if not three, defensive prospects in the First Round. Ferguson had great production at a smaller school, but he should be able to translate into a solid pass rusher at the NFL level.
