Breaking: Raiders Closing In On Deal To Sign 27 Touchdowns With Exciting Physical Attributes

Until the college football season begins, it’s impossible to predict which quarterbacks will emerge as the greatest draft prospects next year. Colorado’s Shedeur Sanders is currently one of the most exciting players to watch.

The 22-year-old quarterback threw 27 touchdowns and three interceptions, and is expected to be a first-round pick next year if he maintains his stellar performance. The Las Vegas Raiders are among the clubs with the most need at quarterback, and Oliver Hodgkinson of Pro Football Network projects them to take Sanders with the No. 5 choice in the following year’s draft.

In a June 15 piece, Hodgkinson noted that the 2025 quarterback class has received criticism and there is still no consensus on who will lead the team next spring. “While Georgia’s passer leads the way in the PFN QB rankings, there are NFL scouts who believe Shedeur Sanders — who battled abysmal OL play a year ago — has all the physical tools to be the first signal-caller selected next April.”

If Sanders has another strong season, he might be in contention for the top choice. The Raiders have too much quality to seriously compete for the No. 1 pick, but Sanders is a player they should keep an eye on this year.

Shedeur Sanders Rated as No. 3 Player in 2025

Notably, Sanders is the son of NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders. However, he’s demonstrated the ability to step out of his father’s shadow. Though there is still a lot to happen before next year’s draft, CBS Sports’ Chris Trapasso ranks Sanders as the No. 3 prospect in the 2025 class.

Trapasso commented, “As a runner, Sanders picks his spots wisely” on June 18. “And while he’s not as fast or as quick as his father was — no one blames him for that — he’s silky smooth and understands that sliding or getting out of bounds is usually the best option with the ball in his hands.

“Then there’s everything that comes along with the name recognition of Sanders. Some teams will shy away from the son of ‘Prime Time.’ But it wouldn’t be outlandish for a franchise to embrace all of it. If we see more heat on some of his longer throws, and he continues to play poised from the pocket while intermittently moving the chains with his legs, yes, Sanders will squarely be on the No. 1 pick radar.”

What if Las Vegas Raiders Don’t Have Top-10 Draft Pick?

Hodgkinson believes the Raiders will be selected fifth overall next year, but this appears to be a high pick. After hiring Antonio Pierce as head coach, the squad with the 13th pick this year should improve. Not to mention, they added impact players such as Brock Bowers and Christian Wilkins.

If the Raiders conclude the season with a pick outside of the top 10, it will be difficult to find a top quarterback. There should be fewer clubs in need of a quarterback than there were this year. This could provide an easier opportunity for the team to trade up. The Raiders need a franchise quarterback, and 2025 could be the year to make it happen.
