Full List of Las Vegas Raiders 2024 Draft Picks: What Picks Does Las Vegas Have in the NFL Draft?

The Las Vegas Raiders have talented returners and a new coach but need a strong class in the 2024 NFL Draft to get back to the postseason.

After firing their head coach Josh McDaniels and general manager Dave Ziegler last season on Halloween, the Las Vegas Raiders have a new regime with Antonio Pierce at the helm and Tom Telesco taking over as GM.

While its QB situation remains fluid with returning starter Aidan O’Connell and FA acquisition Gardner Minshew II jousting for the job, Las Vegas possesses some blue-chip players with WR Davante Adams on offense and DL Maxx Crosby and FA signing Christian Wilkins leading a stout defense.

The Raiders missed the postseason after an 8-9 finish in 2023 but have enough talent that a good draft class could get them back there for the first time since 2021. Let’s take a look at where the Raiders are picking in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Las Vegas Raiders Draft Picks by Round in 2024

  • Round 1, Pick 13
  • Round 2, Pick 44
  • Round 3, Pick 77
  • Round 4, Pick 112
  • Round 5, Pick 148
  • Round 6, Pick 208 (from KC)
  • Round 7, Pick 223 (from NE)
  • Round 7, Pick 229 (from MIN)

How Many Draft Picks Do the Raiders Have in the 2024 NFL Draft?

Owning all five of its original picks in Rounds 1 (pick No. 13), 2 (pick No. 44), 3 (pick No. 77), 4 (pick No. 112), and 5 (pick No. 148), the Raiders hold eight total picks after some trades in the back two rounds.

The Raiders traded their original sixth-rounder (pick No. 188) to the New England Patriots in 2022 for OT Justin Herron and the Patriots’ seventh-rounder (pick No. 223). Herron tore his ACL less than a month after he was traded and was waived by the Raiders in December after appearing in just seven games in Las Vegas.

An in-conference trade with an AFC West foe, the Kansas City Chiefs, netted the Raiders a sixth-rounder (pick No. 208) for DT Neil Farrell Jr. in training camp last year. The Raiders also traded away their original seventh-rounder (pick No. 233) and DT Johnathan Hankins to the Dallas Cowboys for a 2023 sixth-round pick before the trade deadline in 2022.

With the Patriots’ 223rd pick in its possession, Las Vegas also has the Minnesota Vikings’ seventh-rounder (pick No. 229) it exchanged for QB Nick Mullens in Aug. 2022 four months after signing him as a free agent.

Who Did the Raiders Draft in 2023?

The Raiders had four picks in the top 100 last season, making nine total selections in the 2023 NFL Draft, including the No. 7 overall pick on Texas Tech DE Tyree Wilson. After entering the NFL Draft with a preexisting foot injury, Wilson started out on the non-football injured list and played sparingly his rookie season, managing 29 tackles and 3.5 sacks off the bench.

Switching to offense in the second round, the Raiders selected Notre Dame TE Michael Mayer at pick No. 35, moving up three spots from pick No. 38 by sending the Indianapolis Colts its fifth-round pick (No. 141). Mayer made 12 starts for Las Vegas, hauling in 27 catches for 304 yards and two TDs.

With two picks in the third round, Las Vegas took Alabama DT Byron Young at pick No. 70 and Cincinnati WR Tre Tucker at pick No. 100. Young was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list in July before working back and registering six tackles as a rookie. Tucker led the Raiders in yards per catch (17.4) with 19 receptions for 331 yards and two scores.

Las Vegas took one for each side of the ball again in the fourth round, ending with Maryland CB Jakorian Bennett at pick No. 104 and Purdue QB O’Connell at pick No. 135. Bennett cracked the rotation, making four starts with 34 tackles and three defended passes. O’Connell took over full-time behind center for Jimmy Garoppolo, starting 10 games with 2,218 yards passing with 12 TD passes (one rushing) to seven picks.

The Raiders went all defense with their remaining three picks: Georgia safety Christopher Smith II in the fifth round (pick No. 170), Florida LB Amari Burney in the sixth round (pick No. 203), and Arizona State DL Nesta Jade Silvera in the seventh round (pick No. 231).

Smith made one tackle in limited appearances, while Burney racked up 15 tackles in seven games with one start. Silvera made two tackles in two appearances.
