The Raiders took the field as a team for the first time for their 2013 OTA's. Here is how the first team defense lined up to start things off.
Strongside Linebacker: Kaluka Maiava
Middle linebacker: Nick Roach
Strong safety: Tyvon Branch
Free safety: Usama Young
The team switched off who was playing at right and left end between Houston and Carter. Miles Burris hurt his knee early in practice and did not take part in team drills. Tracy Porter suffered a calf strain in position drills and did not take part in team drills.
There are no real surprises in this unit, per se. Unless you consider two rookies (DJ Hayden and Sio Moore) starting to be surprising. It's clear they have big plans for Moore. He spent a good amount of time with his hand on the ground.
