Week 10 snap counts: Is Trayvon Mullen the Raiders new No. 1 CB?

New, comments
NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Oakland Raiders Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Ever since the Gareon Conley trade, Trayvon Mullen’s role has been elevated drastically. But in Week 10, he was on the field for 97 percent of snaps, tied with presumed No. 1 cornerback Daryl Worley.

In Week 7, Conley’s last game with the team, Mullen played one single defensive snap. Since then, he’s gone from 75 percent in Week 8 to 87 percent in Week 9 before playing nearly 100 percent of the time on Thursday night.

Aside from a pass interference penalty, Mullen was on point all night. He gave up a big 45 yard grab to Mike Williams on a deep shot, but was in proper position and simply got outmuscled by a bigger specimen. If the newly healthy Isaiah Johnson can experience the same type of rise that Mullen has made over the past few weeks, the Raiders secondary will start to look intriguing.

For the first time all season, all five starting Raider offensive linemen played together. Yet somehow it was the line’s worst performance of the year as far as paving lanes in the running game. A lack of preparation and continuity may be the reason. Or perhaps with Rodney Hudson and Trent Brown dealing with injuries, their play wasn’t up to snuff.

With over a week to prepare for a reeling Bengals team, we will see what this offensive line is truly made of in Week 11.
