The Las Vegas Raiders have had one of the best offseasons in the entire NFL. Splashy additions of Davante Adams and Chandler Jones, plus hiring rising coaching talent Patrick Graham as the new defensive coordinator, set this team up to make a playoff run in 2022.

It's no surprise, then, to see Las Vegas receive a stellar offseason grade from ProFootballFocus.

The Raiders were given an A- for their showing this offseason. The acquisitions of Adams and Jones led to a "good" rating for their free agency grade, one of only three teams to earn that designation.

Las Vegas also notched a B+ for its draft class, which is especially impressive since GM Dave Ziegler didn't have any first- or second-round picks at his disposal. The selection of guard Dylan Parham with the No. 90 overall choice earned praised from PFF, who views him as a potential starter as a rookie.

This new regime deserves all of the credit it's received so far. The Raiders were in danger of falling to the bottom of the AFC West after the other squads loaded up with talent this offseason, but instead they're expected to contend in the league's strongest division.

Las Vegas is +700 to win the AFC West, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL division odds.
