Raiders could add another RB in Cedric Benson or Ryan grant.

We only have 5 Wide Receivers but could add another to the 53 man roster or the practice Squad. Here are the guys: Brandon Carswell, Derek Carrier, & Thomas Mayo.

We only have one Fullback in Reece but Richard gordon played some fullback last year & Lonyae Miller or Manase Tonga could make the 53 man Roster or Practice Squad.

I Think Zach Hurd should beat out Ed Wang but there is no telling he will hopefully either one can be a SOLID backup for Jared Veldheer.

Some point in the season I expect Tony Bergstrom to start at Left Guard over Cooper Carlisle.

I only put one Center being Stefen Wisniewski, but lucky us most of our linemen are versatile & can play multiple postions even if they have to play center.

The battle between Alex Parsons & Lucas Nix to backup Mike Brisiel should be great. Alex Parsons will win if he uses his experience already being on the practice Squad & Lucas Nix will win if he does good in training camp & preseason.

Joseph Barksdale should be starting Right Tackle some point in the season over Khalif Barnes.

If everything goes the Raiders way this could be the starting offensive line: LT Jared Veldheer, LG Tony Bergstrom, C Stefen Wisniewski, RG Mike Brisiel, RT Joseph Barksdale

I put Travis Ivey on the roster because heis a big DT body 6-4 325. Depending on what scheme we play a 3-4 or a 4-3 he can come off the bench and hopefully be a force.

Christo Bilukidi can play DT or even DE so he gives us depth at both postions.

Travis Goethel should stay at OLB and Nate Stupar can play middle with McClain

Im looking for Miles Burris to have more than 6 sacks coming off the edge like Von Miller. You never know Burris could have double digit sacks? he is alomost identical to Miller but miller is faster Burris had the strength advantage.

Looking for Chaz Powell to shine early on. He was a Wide Receiver turned Cornerback. Has ideal size and good speed. Powell is just like Seattle's Richard Sherman WR turned CB and it worked out for Sherman. Not saying it will for Powell but he has Physical tools and natural ability

Powell is comparable playing in both man and zone, and possesses the innate physical traits to develop within both schemes. Can recover well on deep balls, and is fairly fluid in his hips when running with a receiver.

Pat Lee is a former 2nd RD Pick who never panned out he however did make a appearence in the Super Bowl when Former Raider Charles Woodson got injured. Look for him to show why he belongs in the NFL.

Alot of people think Aaron Henry should be a great Rotational safety for the Raiders and should stand out in special teams.

One of my favorite picks of the draft was Juron Criner at first i was like ?!?!?! we dont need any more WR's but this guy has hands, makes quick cuts, & runs good routes. That is how he gets open with his 4.6 speed. Goalline threat should be what Chaz Schilens was supposed to be and go beyond expectations.

Practice Squad: WR Brandon Carswell, WR/TE Derek Carrier, WR Thomas Mayo, LB Carl Ihenacho, CB Conroy Black, OT Dan Knapp, FB Manase Tonga, G Alex Parsons NOTE - Any of these players can make the 53 man roster.

I hope Brandon Carswell makes the roster i go to the high school he came from (Milpitas) and he went to my favorite college USC!

Wish every player the best to make the Raiders Squad!
