2019 NFL Mock Drafts: Who Raiders Might Take With No. 27 Pick

The Raiders had the No. 4 and No. 24 overall NFL draft picks locked up entering the weekend. They had another first-rounder out there, without a slot to call home.

That changed after Dallas fell in the postseason's divisional round on Saturday and then Philadelphia lost to New Orleans the following day.

That set the Cowboys first-round pick in at No. 27 overall, though it was promised to the Raiders in trade for Amari Cooper.

NFL mock drafts have been approximating that Cowboys/Raiders pick recently, even though the slot was uncertain.

Now that it's set, so let's see what the latest mock drafts have predicted for the Raiders at No. 27:

CBS Sports: WR N'Keal Harry, Arizona State
What they're saying:
"The Raiders need playmakers because 33-year-old Jordy Nelson isn't close to the player he was in Green Bay. Harry had 73 receptions for 1,088 yards and nine touchdowns last season, and he reminds us of JuJu Smith-Schuster and Anquan Boldin."

SB Nation: WR N'Keal Harry, Arizona State
What they're saying:
"The Raiders need one, or maybe even two wide receivers in the draft this year. Harry would be a nice pickup in the first round. He's obviously a talent at the position, otherwise he wouldn't be this high in the draft. But he's capable of playing in the slot and outside, which would give the Raiders flexibility later in the draft."

NBC Sports Washington: RB Damien Harris, Alabama
What they're saying:
This isn't the year for round one running backs. The one goes in the first, odds lean toward the 5-foot-11 Harris, who averaged 6.1 yards per carries during the regular season, but was held to 48 yards on 1 carries in the national semifinal win over Oklahoma.

Bleacher Report: RB Josh Jacobs, Alabama
What they're saying:
"A running back in the first round? Yes, because Josh Jacobs is an Alvin Kamara-like talent.

The junior bruiser for Alabama has excellent balance through contact, great power and has shown the agility and speed to make an impact outside the tackle box. Jacobs is also a soft-handed receiver who has shown in the Alabama scheme the skills to torch defenses in a variety of ways.

The Raiders need to get better at virtually every position, including running back. Jacobs will take pressure off quarterback Derek Carr and should have plenty of holes to run through given the strength of the team's offensive line."

Pro Football Focus: S Taylor Rapp, Washington
What they're saying:
"The defensive overhaul continues with Rapp who has the versatility to play all over the field. He finished with the No. 4 overall grade among safeties last season (90.1) while missing only two tackles on the year."
