The Raiders could possibly use their first of three draft picks tonight on a quarterback, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday morning that the Oakland brass moved Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins up their boards late this week, per a source informed of the situation.
Rapoport added that Haskins impressed the Raiders in his workout and could be a consideration at No. 4.
The Raiders have consistently stood behind Derek Carr as the team’s franchise signal-caller, but GM Mike Mayock did note at his pre-draft press conference that like “any other position” Oakland would do its homework on the draft’s QBs.
“If we found somebody we liked better, or thought had a bigger upside, you’ve got to do the right thing for the organization,” he said at the time.
The Washington Redskins are reportedly interested in Haskins.
Could Jon Gruden be signaling to his brother’s team in D.C. they better move up higher if they want that signal-caller? Might it just be posturing?
