1920x1080 (1)

The Las Vegas Raiders moved up a few picks in the fourth round to take their guy – running back Zamir White from Georgia.

The Silver and Black traded their Nos. 126 and 227 picks to the Minnesota Vikings in return for Nos. 122 and 250. With the 122nd pick, they got a national championship-winning running back in Zamir White. The running back is coming off a career season with the Bulldogs, rushing for 856 yards and 11 touchdowns his junior season. In his three seasons at Georgia, he ran for 2,043 yards and 25 touchdowns. In the 2022 CFB National Championship game, Zamir White ran for 84 yards and a touchdown in the 33-18 victory for the Bulldogs.

"White is a naturally powerful runner with a lower half that is hard to knock off-balance no matter how clean the shot," Lance Zierlein said in his analysis of White. "[H]e's a formidable 'thunder' back waiting to be paired with a 'lightning' cohort and will give running games a chance to test the resolve of defenses for four full quarters."

With the 122th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, the Las Vegas Raiders select running back Zamir White.
