Could Las Vegas Raiders Take Chance On Former Third-Round Pick?

The Las Vegas Raiders have entered a new era under head coach Antonio Pierce. After winning eight games in 2023 and a roster with superstars in defensive end Maxx Crosby, wide receiver Davante Adams, and tackle Kolton Miller, fans hope the team can return to the playoffs very soon.

The team was searching for a franchise quarterback this off-season to put Las Vegas on a path to success. However, after missing out on Vikings star quarterback Kirk Cousins in free agency and Washington star Michael Penix Jr., who was taken eight overall by the Atlanta Falcons in the 2024 NFL Draft, the team enters the season with reigning starter Aidan O'Connell and veteran Gardner Minshew III.

Unless either quarterback has a great season, the search for a franchise quarterback will wait for the black and silver, but could the team take a chance on Malik Willis, one of the top prospects of the 2022 NFL Draft?

Las Vegas Raiders Should Trade For Titans Quarterback Malik Willis

Malik Willis was one of the top-ranked quarterbacks in the 2022 NFL Draft. Once projected as a first-round pick, the Liberty star fell to the third round and was drafted by the Tennessee Titans. Unfortunately, he hasn't had much luck in his career, as his three starts came behind a struggling offensive line.

However, the 24-year-old still deserves a chance in the NFL, especially after his performance with the Flames in his final season with the team. Willis threw for 2,857 yards and 27 touchdowns and added 878 yards and 13 rushing touchdowns on the ground. He led Liberty to an 8-5 season and a victory in the LendingTree Bowl.

While he may not start right away, it would be a great opportunity for Willis to compete for the starting job and throw superstar wide receiver Davante Adams behind a much stronger offensive line. It's not that likely to happen, but it's a good idea for the Raiders to pursue.

Raiders get: QB Malik Willis Titans get: 2025 sixth-round pick

What do you think? Would this be a good move for the Raiders, or should Las Vegas stay where they are?
