While Reggie McKenzie had the most money in the history of the NFL to spend on free agency, he didn't go for the big splashy signings opting instead to sign volume and trade for a quarterback. As a result, the starters on the depth chart look a lot better than last season overall but there is little depth to be had. Here's a current look at the team's expected depth chart:
LT: Donald Penn
G: Kevin Boothe
C: Stefen Wisniewski
G: Mike Brisiel?/Austin Howard
RT: Austin Howard/Menelik Watson
Tony Bergstrom, Lamar Mady, Lucas Nix, and Khalif Barnes are depth on the line, all guys who saw substantial playing time last season.
QB: Matt Schaub, Matt McGloin (Terrelle Pryor will not be on the team a month from now)
RB: Darren McFadden, Kory Sheets, Latavius Murray
FB: Marcel Reece, Jamize Ozawale
WR: James Jones, Rod Streater, Denarius Moore, Andre Holmes
Juron Criner, Greg Jenkins and Brice Butler are depth at WR but none made a significant impact last season.
TE: Mychal Rivera, David Ausberry, Jeron Mastrud, Nick Kasa
DE: Lamarr Woodley
DT: Antonio Smith
DT: Stacy McGee
DE: Justin Tuck
LB: Kevin Burnett, Nick Roach, Sio Moore
CB: Tarell Brown, D.J. Hayden, Chance Casey
S: Tyvon Branch, Charles Woodson, Usama Young
That's everyone of note. There's very little depth at defensive tackle and in the secondary. The team could also use an influx of talent at the tackle, guard and wide receiver spots as well as at running back. There's also practically nobody behind the starting three linebackers.
So what position would you prefer the Raiders address the most in the upcoming draft, further team cuts and UDFA? Specific players aside, which spot on the roster needs the most attention?
