As the start of the NFL draft draws closer, rumors continue to fly of who the Raiders will take with the fourth pick overall.
There was talk that a quarterback might be the pick after it was reported that Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins moved up Oakland’s draft board late this week.
Now, Nick Bosa’s name has entered the mix. As ESPN’s Dan Graziano explains, there could be a scenario where the Raiders trade up for the Ohio State pass-rusher.
After trading away Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears last season, Bosa would make sense for Oakland, certainly more sense than drafting a quarterback with Derek Carr on the roster.
Still, the Raiders are more than capable of getting a solid defensive player at No. 4. As Graziano points out, Quinnen Williams or Ed Oliver could still be there when the Raiders go on the clock, and both are regarded as some of the top players available.
