New, comments

Here is what the Raiders roster might look like today if it were made up of only players who are from in and around Oakland, The Bay Area, and Northern California.

Ok, so call me bored, call me a nerd, whatever, but I got to thinking; what if you populated a Raiders 2015 roster made up of only players from their region? So, that's what I did. Or at least the starters, anyway.

This is not an all-time roster. It is made up of players who would make for a good 2015 roster and who are from reasonably close by. The results make for a pretty good looking roster.

It would be headed up by their new head coach Jack Del Rio who is from nearby Hayward and attended Hayward High School.

Here are your starters:

QB - Tom Brady, Junipero Serra HS, San Mateo
RB - Marshawn Lynch, Oakland Tech
RB - C.J. Anderson, Bethel HS Vallejo
WR - James Jones, Gunderson HS San Jose
WR - Julian Edelman, Woodside HS
TE - Julius Thomas, Stockton/Tokay HS Lodi
OT - Amini Silatolu, Tracy
OT - David Bakhtiari, Junipero Serra HS San Mateo
OG - Logan Mankins, Mariposa HS Catheys Valley
OG - Andy Levitre, San Lorenzo Valley HS Felton
C - Evan Dietrich-Smith, Salinas
DT - Christian Topou, Grant Union HS Sacramento
DT - Justin Bannan, Bella Vista HS Fair Oaks
DE - Jared Allen, Los Gatos/Live Oak Morgan Hill
DE - Akiem Hicks, Del Campo HS Fair Oaks
LB - Kiko Alonso, Los Gatos
LB - Rey Maualuga, Eureka
LB - Mason Foster, Seaside
CB - Trumaine Johnson, Edison HS Stockton
CB - T.J. Carrie, De LaSalle HS Concord
