The Las Vegas Raiders, and the rest of the NFL, are officially one month away from the draft. And the Silver & Black have positioned themselves to have a good April.
Because of the recent Darren Waller trade, where the team received a third-round pick for the former starting tight end, the Raiders now have 12 total draft picks in the 2023 NFL Draft.
That move wasn’t the only one to secure the team more picks. The Raiders were awarded two compensatory picks because they lost more free agents than they signed in 2022. They also received extra picks because of the following moves:
- Trading Bryan Edwards and a seventh-round pick to the Falcons in May 2022 secured them an extra fifth-round pick
- After sending Jonathan Hankins to the Cowboys, the Raiders secured an extra sixth-round pick
- Trading cornerback Trayvon Mullen Jr. to the Arizona Cardinals resulted in an extra seventh-round pick

The Raiders finished the 2022 season with a 6-11 record. The team showed that they were ready to move on from quarterback Derek Carr by benching him for the final two games. After the team released Carr, he signed with the New Orleans Saints and the Raiders added quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.
