The Las Vegas Raiders spent most of the free agency period bolstering one of the NFL’s worst defenses, with one glaring exception. They added a pair of starting linebackers in Cory Littleton and Nick Kwiatkoski, a starting free safety in Demarious Randall and more depth on the defensive line. Now heading into the draft the biggest need on defense is cornerback. General manager Mike Mayock has two first-round picks to address that need but says he doesn’t want to force anything next week and make a mistake.
