After a brilliant year at Oklahoma and a strong Combine, CeeDee Lamb has emerged as a top wide receiver prospect in the 2020 NFL Draft. The Las Vegas Raiders are in need of a wide receiver, and the NFL Draft odds on FanDuel Sportsbook now favor them to take Lamb.

The Raiders are likely to take a wide receiver first at No. 12 overall, but with so many great prospects available, including Alabama's Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs III, they have plenty of options. In recent days, it appears that Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock are locking in on taking Lamb, as they have taken the lead at +310 to be where he lands.

That puts the Raiders slightly ahead of the San Francisco 49ers (No. 13 overall) at +380 , and Denver Broncos (No. 15 overall) at +430. The situation is very fluid between these three teams, but the betting market is suggesting that the Raiders are the most likely to take the best available wide receiver prospect on the board. Recent media reports indicate that player to be Lamb, which explains the odds movement.

In other markets, Lamb remains just behind Jeudy. Lamb sits at +130 in the odds to be the first receiver drafted overall with Jeudy at -105. In fact, Jeudy is at +300 to be selected by the Raiders himself, meaning that bettors aren't sure which receiver the Raiders would take.

In the Raiders' consensus mock draft picks, five of the six experts are predicting the Raiders will take Lamb at No. 12 overall. The reasoning here is simple: the Raiders need a receiver to help Derek Carr and Josh Jacobs. The front office will also be keen to immediately mint a new star in their move to Las Vegas.

Right now, no one can be sure which order that this year's top wideouts will go, but the Raiders are almost certain to select one of them during the draft on April 23.
