The Las Vegas Raiders needed a playmaker and they might have found the best one in the draft in Henry Ruggs. Sure, it could be argued that CeeDee Lamb or Jerry Jeudy would’ve been the better pick, but nobody had the same game-breaking ability that Ruggs will bring to the team. There may not be a player more revered in Raider Nation than Charles Woodson and he gave some advice to the wide receiver after he was picked.
Woodson is perhaps the best draft pick the Raiders have made since he was selected by the team in 1998. He went from being the fourth overall pick to one of the greatest defensive backs in NFL history. If Woodson is you giving you advice, you should listen. Ruggs will have plenty of support from Raiders alumni if he seeks it out.

Much is made about Ruggs’ speed, but he believes he can do more than just run fast. He’s a good route runner and doesn’t drop a lot of passes.
“I feel like I can show that at any time,” Ruggs said during a call after his selection. “Of course, my tape speaks for itself, but when I get out there I think people will see that I can do more than just run.”
