The Raiders pass rush received a massive boost this season with the emergence of Maxx Crosby and solid efforts from Benson Mayowa. However, they still lack rotational depth at defensive end and with Mayowa hitting free agency, there becomes an opening at the position.
Bradlee Anae projects as a mid-round pick who put together a productive college career at Utah. Anae showed flashes of taking over games, but couldn’t do so with enough regularity to be grouped the premier edge rushers in this year’s draft class.
Anae won the Morris Trophy as the Pac-12’s top defensive lineman, while recording 13 sacks in his senior season. The more reps he gathers under his belt, the more he’ll be able to refine his technique which needs some work as of now, but his future remains exponentially bright for a pick outside the first two rounds.
