Rookie Trayvon Mullen pegged to start at cornerback for Raiders after trade of Gareon Conley

It must be approaching the trade deadline because Jon Gruden is trading away former Reggie McKenzie top picks for draft picks. Last year it was former first round pick Amari Cooper who was sent to the Cowboys for a first round pick. This time it’s former first round pick Gareon Conley to the Texans for a third round pick.

With each departure, there comes the question of who replaces them. Last year they had no one who could replace Cooper’s production on the team. They were simply in rebuild mode and got an offer they couldn’t refuse.
