The Raiders will continue to do their due diligence with the top quarterbacks in this year’s draft.

According to Albert Breer of SI.com, Las Vegas will round out its visits with the best signal-callers when Ohio State’s CJ Stroud and Tennessee’s Hendon Hooker come to town next week.

This week, the Raiders have already had Kentucky’s Will Levis in for a top-30 visit. Alabama’s Bryce Young is set to be at the team’s facility on Thursday with Florida’s Anthony Richardson visiting on Friday.

Stroud is unlikely to be available when the Raiders come on the clock at No. 7 overall. But Las Vegas could still trade up to get him.

Hooker, who is recovering from a torn ACL suffered in the fall, may be available for the Raiders’ second-round pick at No. 38 overall.

Las Vegas signed Jimmy Garoppolo to a three-year deal in free agency and also recently added Brian Hoyer at the position. Both players have familiarity with Josh McDaniels’ offense from shared time in New England.

  1. They are doing their due diligence on the QB’s. That way, when they pass on all of them, they can say they didn’t like the value and will go D or trade down. Smoke screen. This is the lying season.

  2. My 2 favorite prospects at QB for my Raiders. Only unfortunate thing is theyll be poisoned by Mcdaniels for a few years till hes fired again. Id rather us trade back and get Defense and Hooker later.

  3. They’re just playing with everyone. I am sure Z and McD know exactly who they want in the 1st 3 rounds already.

  4. They will take the fastest WR with their 1st pick, they always do. The ghost of the cryptkeeper lives on.

  5. I love Hooker as a second/third round pick. The Raiders will definitely try to move up to get one of the big 3 QBs this draft and that should without a doubt be plan A, but if we can’t do that picking up Hooker in the second/third round would be huge he has the most upside potential out of any of the QBs this draft and is honestly a beast who knows how to play in big games.

  6. There’s nothing better than the Raiders taking a guy in the 1st round that nobody, I mean nobody has ever heard of … LOL … every draft

  7. Hendon Hooker will still be on his rookie contract when he qualifies for social security.

    We will take their first this year and their next 3 1’s – Panthers Fan
    ——————————————————
    The Panthers were 1-4 against teams that finished last season with a winning record. They’ve now traded away multiple 1st round and 2nd round picks and a really good player. Imagine if the QB they take ends up being only mediocre. Enjoy!

  9. Kudos to Stroud and Young for meeting with a team that probably doesn’t have a shot, unless they drop a bit. Some might be inclined to only meet with #1 or #2. They aren’t letting their egos get the best of them. That’s smart.

  10. Just draft 5 D players and 2 Oline. Lux pick of a TE later.

    Don’t overthink this is and blow it like Gruden did. POS.

  11. Those guys who are projected to be in the first 3 picks need to stop being worked out before they get hurt.

    They are going to try to move up.

    Theyre trading down for Hooker.

    ———–

    Trading up? Trading down? One thing is for sure.. we are keeping people guessing.

  13. McDaniels is a special type of smug. He left a dumpster fire in Denver, left the Colts at the alter and is taking a match to the Raiders. I feel for the Raider fans…but it isn’t going to get better till he’s gone.

  14. They’re meeting with me after that. I know they’ll trade down to get me……

  15. The Raiders will be the worst team in the NFL this season.

  16. I’d rather CJ go later in the draft to a stronger team than to a perianal weak loser team.
