The Oakland Raiders were horrible last season, so horrible they couldn\u2019t even tank properly to get the NO. 1 overall pick.\nThis season they have Mike Mayock as GM.

With the 24th overall pick, they selected Alabama RB Josh Jacobs. The retirement of Marshawn Lynch, the downfall of Doug Martin and the ACL tear to Isaiah Crowell made it an easy decision to take Jacobs late in the first round. Jalen Richard will play RB2 behind Jacobs and will still get plenty of looks at the ball.\n\nThe former Alabama RB average 6 yards-per-carry across three seasons in a talented offensive set up. Jacobs isn\u2019t afraid to get the hard yards when it matters. He is a frequent chain mover, has powerful legs and is great after contact.\n\nWith the departure of TE Jared Cook to the New Orleans Saints in the offseason, The Raiders had a huge hole for a quality receiver. They filled it with an OK option in former LSU's Foster Moreau. Moreau is more of a blocking TE and is unlikely to see a lot of game time in his first season. Expect new signings, Derek Carrier or Luke Wilson, to take most of the reps this season.\n\nThe Raiders have struggled in recent years with decent options to throw to. That is why their TE was the most targeted player in 2018. This season they have signed WR Antonio Brown and drafted WR Hunter Renfrow from Clemson. The 149th overall pick will make an immediate impact.\n\nThe averaged over 11 yards-per-carry in college and scores TDs when it matters most. He pulled Clemson out of trouble countless times.\n\nExpect the Raiders to be more potent on offense in 2019.\nDefense\nThe Raiders defense was the worst in the history of the NFL in 2018. Ok, that might be a slight exaggeration, but they were bad. As a team they only produced 13.0 sacks, the next worst team was the Giants with 30.0. You don\u2019t have to be a math genius to see that is a horrible stat.\n\nWhat did they do to rectify that situation? They drafted Clemson DE Clelin Ferrell. In his final season with the National Champions, he amassed 55 total tackles and 11.5 sacks. Almost as many as the entire Raiders defense in 2018.\n\nFerrell is a special talent. Quick off the mark, bends around opponents and attacks the QB without hesitation. He has been a joy to watch for Clemson and projects well in the NFL.\n\nOle Miss Safety Johnathan Abram was the Raiders third selection of the 1st round. This was an excellent choice in a position of need for the Silver and Black. They leak for points with downfield passes than any other team in 2018 and will now have a player who covers the entire backfield with ease.\n\nClemson CB Trayvon Mullen is another nice pick-up. He will sit behind Nick Nelson for now but won\u2019t ride the pine for long.\nGrade: B+\nMike Mayock and Jon Gruden have done a great job with this year\u2019s class. The Raiders should be better in 2019 for these acquisitions.
