NBC Sports NFL mock draft: Raiders select CeeDee Lamb with No. 12 pick

The 2020 NFL Draft begins on Thursday, which means the mocks are out in full force.

NBC Sports hosted its live mock draft on Wednesday, with Raiders insider Scott Bair selecting Oklahoma wide receiver CeeDee Lamb with the Silver and Black's No. 12 pick.

“(General manager) Mike Mayock loves this guy, he’s a yards-after-catch king, and if you look at what Jon Gruden’s offense is built around, it’s a west-coast offense built on short, well-timed passes,” Bair said.

NBC Sports’ own Peter King reported that Mayock said he’s the “most complete receiver in the draft.”

It’s a tough choice as there are two other prominent pass-catchers in the draft with Alabama’s Henry Ruggs and Jerry Jeudy, but we'll see soon enough what the Raiders decide to do.
