The Raiders add another young, solid pass rusher to the team with their fourth round pick, bringing in Zack Baun from Wisconsin. Baun is the type of player that has a high motor and plays his heart out every snap, much like another fourth round pick the Raiders added last year, Maxx Crosby. Baun can line up as a linebacker or defensive end but is used primarily as a pass rusher.
Antoine Brooks Jr is an extremely versatile player that is going to fly under the radar. Brooks Jr can do just about everything and play multiple positions. The 5’11 safety from Maryland has the speed to keep up with receivers, running backs, or tight ends, as well as the explosiveness and skillset to make tackles. Along with all of that, Brooks has 19 tackles for a loss in his career as a safety, showing the ability to get in the backfield.
Sure, the Raiders make a bold move in this mock draft by selecting two wide receivers in the first round, but they are able to get significantly better at major areas of need with their seven picks in 2020. Of course, the team could move up and down depending on how the draft shakes out this April, but if they hold tight to these seven draft slots, the haul they could get would net them immediate dividends on Sundays.
