Most people would agree that the Las Vegas Raiders had a great first day in the 2020 NFL Draft by selecting Alabama WR Henry Ruggs III to give Derek Carr a great weapon . But one thing the Raiders did wrong might just be something Gruden didn't pick up right away.
The Raiders coach had cameras in his draft room at home Thursday night, so the world could peek in on him as he added talent to the Silver and Black's roster. Unfortunately for Gruden, he placed his big board right behind him and in plain view of the audience watching after the Raiders selected Alabama wide receiver Henry Ruggs.
At No. 19 overall, the Raiders selected Ohio State cornerback Damon Arnette. While Arnette is a tough, physical corner who excels in man coverage and is a great scheme fit for the Raiders, he wasn't expected to go until the second or third round. The Raiders no doubt looked to make a trade down, but a favorable option likely never presented itself, so they jumped at the chance to fill the biggest hole on their roster.
