Raiders take Oregon QB Bo Nix in analytics-based mock draft

Over the next two months, you are going to see thousands of mock drafts with a ton of different players mocked to the Raiders at No. 13 for a variety of reasons.

But one of the positions the Raiders have to figure out this offseason is quarterback. And their best option might be to select one at No. 13. But who would make the most sense for Las Vegas in Round 1?

In a recent mock draft by Cynthia Frelund of NFL Media, she mocked Bo Nix (Oregon) to the Raiders in Round 1. Here is a snippet of why she believes Nix would make sense in Round 1.

You might have heard he had a 77.4 completion percentage last season (led FBS). But did you know his accuracy dropped off the least of any Power Five QB on designed rollouts? Now you do!

Nix is widely believed to be one of the top five quarterbacks in this year’s draft and could easily be a first-round pick. He was highly productive in the Pac-12 and his athleticism/arm do make him an intriguing prospect.
