The Las Vegas Raiders could be a dark-horse candidate to move up for a top quarterback prospect in the first round of the 2021 NFL draft, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Derek Carr is obviously entrenched as the team’s current starter, but it sounds like the Raiders might be willing to make a bold move to plan for the future if the right prospect falls far enough down the board, giving the team the chance to trade up a few spots to get him.

Quarterbacks are expected to be taken with each of the first three picks in this year’s draft, so it’ll be interesting to see if the next couple of passers last long enough for the Raiders to consider such a move.
