The Las Vegas Raiders didn't have any picks in the first two rounds of the NFL Draft, as both picks were sent to the Green Bay Packers in exchange for Davante Adams. With Adams in the building, this roster is ready to contend for the crown in the NFL's most-competitive division. But it's likely still a few pieces away from being a true Super Bowl contender.

Sometimes, landing the right late-round rookie can make all the difference. Here are three players the Raiders should consider trading up for in Round 4 of the NFL Draft.

Raiders NFL Draft

3. Daniel Faalele, OT, Minnesota

Daniel Faalele is a mountain of a man. He's a 6-foot-9, 384-pound offensive tackle. That's Mekhi Becton-level beef upfront. Faalele was projected to be more of a late Day 2 pick, but the Raiders could take advantage of his slight fall. Faalele can be a little stiff and his technique needs work, but a man that size has no business moving as well as he does, and the 22-year-old can has the strength and mass you need to move NFL defenders. He'd be a nice flyer for a team that really needs to upgrade at right tackle.

2. Tariq Woolen, CB, UTSA

Tariq Woolen is a size-speed freak. He absolutely lit up the NFL Combine, recording a 4.26-second 40-yard dash and a 42-inch vertical jump as a 6-foot-4, 205-pound corner. But he's a converted wide receiver who only started playing the position in 2019, so he's obviously not the most polished corner. Prospects this big and fast are rarely available at this point in the Draft, though, and this secondary desperately needs some youth and athleticism. He's a gamble, but this move has home run potential.

1. Perrion Winfrey, DT, Oklahoma

Perrion Winfrey is the best player available. He also happens to play a real position of need, as Las Vegas is currently projected to start Bilal Nichols and Jonathan Hankins on the interior of the D-Line. Winfrey is coming off a senior season that saw him record 23 tackles, 11.0 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks. The 21-year-old DT should be able to provide some juice to a group that sorely needs it.
