2020 NFL mock draft: Surveying latest options for the Raiders
By Brad Weiss
NFL Spin Zone, Cody Williams
Pick No. 4: Iowa EDGE A.J. Epenesa
Pick No. 17 (From Chicago Bears): Virginia CB Bryce Hall
Cody Williams from NFL Spin Zone recently released his latest Mock Draft, and in it, he has the Raiders bringing in some talent on the defensive side of the ball. Iowa edge rusher A.J. Epenesa is one of the better players at his position in this draft class, and would be the top edge rusher had it not been for Chase Young from Ohio State.
He would be the pick at No. 4 according to Williams, with the Raiders bringing in Virginia cornerback Bryce Hall at No. 17 overall. Hall is another good cover corner in this draft class, and based on what we have seen from the Raiders secondary this season, they need all the help they can get back there.
Holding two first round picks is certainly a luxury, and the upcoming draft class has some elite talent at positions the Raiders need to target. Hopefully, the Raiders are picking a lot later than No. 4 overall, but with how the season, and the schedule is shaping out, an early pick could be in the cards once again.
