The Raiders Make a Move: Is the NFL Draft About to Change?

At the end of the 2022 season, the Raiders replaced their longtime quarterback Derek Carr and signed Jimmy Garoppolo, who had previous experience leading a team.

Despite this move, the team's general manager, Dave Ziegler, stated that they are still considering all options, including drafting a quarterback in the upcoming NFL Draft.

The team has already held visits with several quarterbacks, and Ziegler emphasized the importance of competition at all positions, including quarterback.

Even if Garoppolo starts the season, having a young quarterback on the roster provides insurance against injury or other unforeseen circumstances and can be beneficial for roster construction. Therefore, the team is keeping an open mind and exploring all possibilities as they move forward.
