Las Vegas Raiders see a quality starting tackle fall to 86

The Las Vegas Raiders really need to maximize their picks in the 2022 NFL Draft as there are some serious roster holes. Sure, the passing offense should be really good with the weapons that Derek Carr has and the head coach that he has in Josh McDaniels. However, it is impossible to ignore the holes that this team is going to have to deal with, mostly caused by horrible drafting by Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock.

The first big hole that needs to be addressed is the offensive line. Alex Leatherwood was a bad pick a year ago and it would not even be that shocking if he is not the starting right guard anymore by year's end. The Raiders desperately need a tackle and that is the position that the Chargers should hope doesn't fall to them.

Most times you get a tackle with the 86th pick it is a developmental tackle that is going to take time to develop and is not going to be very good in his rookie season. However, there are always the outliers that fall in the draft and the worst situation for the Bolts would be seeing someone like Daniel Faalele, who can start at right tackle next season, fall to Vegas.

The other need that might not be as urgent for the Raiders is the secondary. How bad the Raiders' secondary is going to be next season is not talked about enough. Vegas is going to have some learning curves after ditching Gus Bradley, especially with a lack of talent and depth.

However, when it really comes down to it, the worst-case scenario for the Chargers would be the Raiders actually making a good pick to protect Derek Carr.
