Three most exciting Raiders to watch this season

New, comments

It was a tough call for me. Who are you most excited to watch this year in Silver & Black?

There are a lot of exciting players on the Raiders’ roster this season. But three stand out above the rest for me.

  1. Marshawn Lynch: Everyone is eagerly anticipating his return to football as one of the most exciting running backs in the league. After a year away, and with the Raiders dominant offensive line in front of him, there’s a very real possibility he couldn’t return to the form he had in his last full season of 2014.
  2. Amari Cooper: Two 1000-yard Pro Bowl seasons in two years for Amari. Now he gets a new addition to the wide receiver corps in the form of speedster Cordarrelle Patterson. Will Cooper see some time in the slot this season? If he did, it would only bolster his already impressive numbers playing primarily on the outside his first two seasons. Oh, the possibilities of a player with his route running and athletic abilities going over the middle more often.
  3. Khalil Mack: 30.0 sacks in three seasons, including 26 over the past two seasons culminating in being named the 2016 Defensive Player of the Year. He demands attention whenever he steps on the field both from the opposing offense and the viewing audience.
