Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The first round of roster cuts are due Tuesday and could happen at any time for the Raiders. Those cuts will bring the team down from the 90-man roster to the mandatory 75 players heading into the final preseason game.

In preparation for the cuts to begin, let's start with my 53-man roster prediction


Matt Schaub, Derek Carr, Matt McGloin


Maurice Jones-Drew, Darren McFadden, Latavius Murray, Marcel Reece, Jamize Olawale


James Jones, Rod Streater, Denarius Moore, Andre Holmes, Brice Butler


Mychal Rivera, Brian Leonhardt, *Waiver wire


Donald Penn, Menelik Watson, Austin Howard, Khalif Barnes, Stefen Wisniewski, Gabe Jackson, Matt McCants, Kevin Boothe


Justin Tuck, Lamarr Woodley, Antonio Smith, Pat Sims, Justin Ellis, Shelby Harris, C.J. Wilson, Stacy McGee


Khalil Mack, Sio Moore, Nick Roach, Miles Burris, Kaluka Maiava, Kaelin Burnett


Tarell Brown, Carlos Rogers, Chimdi Chekwa, T.J. Carrie, Keith McGill, Taiwan Jones, Neiko Thorpe


Tyvon Branch, Charles Woodson, Usama Young, *Waiver wire


Sebastian Janikowski, Marquette King, Jon Condo

*I am predicting the Raiders will look to the free agent waiver wire to fill this roster spot.
