Absurdly early Raiders 53-man roster prediction

New, comments

Yeah, it's still May. But what the heck, let's do a 53-man roster prediction.

Donald Miralle

The Raiders won't have to whittle their current 90-player roster down to 53 active roster spots and 8 practice squad players until September. But why not make a 53-man roster prediction right now? I see no reason why not.

Keep in mind, this is not a depth chart prediction. The order of the names is not necessarily as I predict they will fall in the depth chart.
