Round 4, Pick #107: Dawson Knox, TE, Ole Miss
With Jared Cook (who was the Raiders 2018 leading receiver) likely to leave through Free Agency, Oakland desperately needs to add help at the position. Cook was a reliable pass catcher and I would be very surprised if the Raiders didn’t draft a TE in the earlier rounds. This is a great year to need a TE, since this 2019 class is very deep for the position. If the Raiders choose to wait to Round 4, a guy like Dawson Knox makes a lot of sense. Knox has upside as a possession receiver and has shown willingness to make an impact in the run game as well.
Round 5, Pick #140: Mark Fields, CB, Clemson
Another position the Raiders would be wise to address in the 2019 NFL Draft would be Cornerback. The Raiders don’t have great depth at the position and would be wise to add one or two pieces there through the Draft. Clemson CB Mark Fields would be a solid addition at this point. Fields has elite speed (4.37 40) and should be a Round 4/5 selection after a solid week at the Senior Bowl as well as a good showing at the combine.
