Raiders 53-man roster projection 2.0
With two more preseason games since my previous 53-man roster projection, and on the eve of the final roster cutdown deadline, I make my final Raiders roster prediction.
The 6-5, 323-pound defensive tackle played at Florida and was vying for a spot at nose tackle on a team with 6-3, 315 pound Dan Williams and 6-2, 334-pound Justin Ellis already in place. It was a tough task and Orr showed enough I foresee the team hoping he clears waivers so they can place him on the practice squad.
The defensive line as a whole for the Raiders had many players who had shown enough to make a case for the roster. There was going to be some tough calls to make by the coaching staff when deciding who got the ax.
