The next three players are likely only available in a trade if the Las Vegas Raiders want to go into a full rebuild. If they believe they can get to the playoffs with a different quarterback, potentially someone like Tom Brady, then they likely don’t explore trade options for these players.

However, for the sake of this article let’s assume they are going to try and rebuild by adding younger players for more long-term success.

One player that would generate interest if they become available is tight end Darren Waller. In 2019, Waller had a breakout season and would surpass 1,100 receiving yards that season along with another 1,100 receiving yards in 2020. He would be named to his first and only Pro Bowl in 2020.

However, he has dealt with injuries over the past two seasons and has not been able to have the same impact. If Waller becomes available, he likely would be able to bring back a late Day 2 or Day 3 pick and would generate interest from teams who are chasing a Super Bowl title like the Cincinnati Bengals.
