Raiders 7-round 2020 NFL mock draft: Las Vegas trades down in first
By Nick Ellis
With their final pick of the third round, the Raiders select Jabari Zuniga out of Florida. Zuniga had shown flashes of excellence in his college career but was never able to perform to his potential. Zuniga has the ability to move around the defensive line and is extremely athletic for his size.
If the Raiders could find the right position for Zuniga and play him consistency in the spot that he is best, I believe he would be able to unlock his potential and play at a high level. Once the Raiders stopped moving Clelin Ferrell around so much last season and played him at his natural position he started to look more like a first-round talent.
Zuniga will be a work in progress for the Raiders coaching staff, but if Rod Marinelli is as good of a coach as Gruden and Mayock believe he is, then he could turn Zuniga into a monster on the field. Las Vegas has targeted their defensive line big time the last two drafts, and they look to do so again here with Zuniga.
