The Las Vegas Raiders have plenty of areas to improve in the 2021 season.
One of those areas is the pass rush.
They could look to free agency for help, but are getting to know draft prospects as well.
According to Justin Melo, the Raiders are showing interest in Boston College’s Max Roberts.

Roberts also has met with the Jets and Chargers.
He participated in the Hula Bowl, which a college all-star game that followed the 2020 season.
Roberts measures at 6’1 and 250 pounds, in which many consider him undersized.
He transferred from Maine to Boston College.
Before Maine, Roberts was at Fordham where he had 74 tackles, 6.5 sacks, and 13.5 tackles for loss in 20 games.
In his only year at Maine, Roberts appeared in 11 games and had 19 tackles, 4 sacks, and 2 forced fumbles.
He was impressive after the transfer to Boston College in which he had 4.5 sacks in only 8 games.
