If Raiders had to field a team today, what would it look like?

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen address the team at 2012 training camp - Levi Damien

The Raiders have made a few moves this off-season. Several players have come and several players are gone. So, what would it look like if the Raiders had to field a team today?

Today is any given Sunday in the heart of the off-season. The most important sports going on today are the remaining college basketball conference championship games. But what if the Raiders had to put a team on the field today? What would it look like?

The next time the Raiders have to put a team on the field is a good five months from now. And that's good because it would be a difficult bordering on impossible idea to try and field a team right now. But just for the fun of it, let's look at what that team would look like.

Denarius Moore

ERFA= Exclusive Rights Free Agent

That adds up to 54 players on the roster if you include the four Exclusive Rights Free Agents who were on the active roster at the end of last season. Figure Rolando McClain would be inactive even if he were on the roster and the Raiders have just enough players to make up a 53-man roster. Not the ideal 53-man roster, but 53 warm bodies none the less.

They are allowed 90 players in training camp so this chart will change quite a bit between now and then.
