Raiders add massive right tackle in latest NFL Network mock draft

One of the goals for the Raiders during the 2024 NFL Draft is to improve the offensive line. They are currently without two starters (LG, RT) and need to get younger and more athletic. Is there a chance the Raiders use their top pick on an offensive lineman to protect whoever is at quarterback?

In a recent mock draft by Charles Davis of NFL Media, he had the Raiders addressing their offensive line need by selecting Oregon State RT Taliese Fuaga at pick No. 13. Here is what he had to say about the selection in Round 1:

If the Raiders don’t end up drafting a quarterback in Round 1, this stalwart OT would help their offense improve immediately.

Fuaga is one of the safest prospects in the class as he was dominant at Oregon State and put on a show at the Senior Bowl. He plays with a ton of power and his overall athleticism is very good.

If the Raiders are looking to get more physical on the offensive line, Fuaga would be an outstanding selection. However, there is a chance that he might not be on the board as several teams ahead of them could use offensive line help.
