After a month of draft speculation, I believe Gonzalez to be the best value and best fit for the Raiders at No. 7. Gonzalez would provide the explosive talent and youthful energy that Raiders coach Josh McDaniels has mentioned is lacking. The cornerback position is a need for the Las Vegas team, and he is a top-tier player. The Raiders’ defense would take a significant leap forward if they were to get him.
The Raiders should survive this. They’ll have their pick of several outstanding players if they pick seventh. They need to sharpen their picking skills.

- No. 7, Myles Murphy, Edge, Clemson
Ryan Wilson of CBSSports.com simulated the 2023 NFL Draft over the course of the first three rounds. The Silver and Black keep the seventh overall pick and, despite having Will Levis available, opt to add to their defensive unit.
Wilson has selected Myles Murphy, a standout edge rusher from Clemson. Since 2019, when they selected Clelin Ferrell fourth overall, the team has taken a chance on a Clemson edge rusher in the first round. Nevertheless, Murphy is a lot more versatile pass rusher than Ferrell was while at Clemson.
