Mere weeks ago, the Raiders looked like a team on the verge of jettisoning its franchise quarterback and rebuilding its coaching staff and front office. They were 6-7 and poised for another rebuild. But, this team has some magic to it, and a huge amount of credit goes to Derek Carr and the leadership of this team - a team where the camaraderie and belief seems real despite an unbelievable set of challenges thrown at them this season.

After 4 straight wins, the notion of doing anything but building around Carr seems silly, and it is the likeable signal caller (and league's #5 passer) who is in need of a bolster of his supporting cast. According to data compiled through Week 16, Derek Car ranked 27th in the league in "Team Help Composite Score," the lowest of any playoff QB, which measures things like WR Open Rate and Pass Block Win Rate. Over the course of this season, Carr has lost his coach, his top WR, barely had his top TE, and dealt with an OL held together with duct tape and a receiving corps that is among the league's most underwhelming. While Jameson Williams' knee may be a deterrent in drafting him in RD1, the underlying truth remains that this team has gone from looking defense first in the draft to supporting its QB. Still, free agency will be telling as Vegas' interior DL, LB corps, and CBs - units that have out-performed expectations - consist of journeymen on short term deals.

RAIDERS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
