This Friday is the Raiders rookie minicamp. Among those expected to attend will be the team's drafted rookies, undrafted signees, first year players, and tryout players.

Teams can have their drafted rookies, undrafted rookies and players who weren't on the roster long enough last year to gain one year of vesting participate. To make the camps work, though, teams brought in a dozen to two dozen tryout players to fill out positions.

Here is a list of those players who are expected to be in attendance:

Connor Cook, QB, Michigan State (D-4)
Garrett Gilbert, QB, Southern Methodist (1st year player)

This list isn't official. All names listed as UDFA are officially signed. There will likely be more players at this camp than are listed here as invites/tryouts. First year players are those without an accrued year in the NFL. They are eligible to attend, but it's up to the team whether they do or not.
