Raiders 7-round 2020 mock draft: Vegas trades back, adds second
By Nick Ellis
The Raiders get a steal in the third round with Bradlee Anae, an incredibly talented edge rusher from Utah. Anae will likely be passed up on during this draft because of his size, but his film, stats, and effort show enough for the Raiders to take him in the third round, as they add another piece to the defensive line.
Anae recorded 13 sacks in his senior season, and eight as a junior, showing that uncanny ability to get after the quarterback. The 22-year old has the ability to be as big of a steal as Maxx Crosby last season, and pairing them together could be deadly.
A trio of Anae, Crosby, and No. 4 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft Clelin Ferrell would give the Raiders three very young, and very talented edge rushers moving forward. NFL games are won and lost up front along the offensive and defensive lines, and by adding Anae, and Javon Kinlaw in the first round, the Raiders have accomplished making this a dominant unit.
