The Las Vegas Raiders are looking to create a winning culture as they make the move to Sin City in 2020. This offseason will be spent drastically improving the roster—especially at the cornerback position.

The Raiders began the 2019 season with Daryl Worley and Gareon Conley as their starting cornerbacks. But ahead of the trade deadline, the Raiders sent Conley to the Houston Texans in exchange for a third-round pick.

As a result, rookie Trayvon Mullen and veteran Nevin Lawson saw expanded roles in the secondary. Regardless of who Las Vegas put on the field, the Raiders were unable to show consistency in slowing down opposing team’s aerial attacks.

Given the current state of the cornerback position for the Raiders, they’ll need to address the position in the offseason. It wouldn’t come as a surprise if they drafted someone and signed someone to bolster the position.

Fortunately for the Raiders, there are quite a few viable cornerbacks available in the 2020 NFL Draft and in NFL free agency. With that in mind, here are three potential cornerback targets for the Raiders this offseason.
