2019 NFL Draft order: Cody Parkey's field-goal miss gives Raiders No. 24 pick


Cody Parkey's missed field-goal try Sunday was bad news for the Chicago Bears, but it helped the Raiders.

The Silver and Black secured the No. 4 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft after concluding a disappointing 4-12 season. They now also own the No. 24 pick after Parkey's miss from 43 yards sealed the Bears' loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC wild-card round.

That pick, which would've been no lower than No. 25 had Parkey made the kick and the Bears won, is part of a larger compensation package acquired from Chicago for All-Pro edge rusher Khalil Mack on Sept. 1.

Of the Raiders' three first-round picks, one draft slot still has yet to be determined. They got one from Dallas in exchange for wide receiver Amari Cooper, though that pick won’t be set until the Cowboys are eliminated from the NFC playoffs or win the Super Bowl.

This upcoming NFL draft is a major part of Jon Gruden’s rebuilding project, a task undertaken during his first year back as Raiders coach/chief personnel man.

The Raiders also have a high pick in the second round that belongs to them, meaning they will own four picks in the first 35 selections.

The Raiders have Chicago’s 2020 first-round pick coming in exchange for Mack, too, though they shockingly also gave up a 2020 second-round choice in the deal.
