It’s official. The franchise tag deadline has passed. You can see the list of players who were tagged here. As expected, many of the league’s top pass rushers were locked up and will never hit the market. Some others simply re-signed with their respective teams. Others will slip through, making for a good looking group headed for free agency.

Here are the top ten who would be major upgrades on a Raiders team that needs them.

1. ILB C.J. Mosley

2. S Landon Collins

3. OLB Anthony Barr

4. ED Trey Flowers

5. RB Le’Veon Bell

6. OT Daryl Williams

7. ED Za’Darius Smith

8. CB Ronald Darby

9. ED Ezekiel Ansah

10. OT Ja’Wuan James

11. S Adrian Amos

12. CB Kareem Jackson

13. OLB K.J. Wright

14. WR Golden Tate

15. ILB Preston Brown

16. OT Trent Brown

17. RB Tevin Coleman

18. CB Bradley Roby

19. ED Preston Smith

20. ED Dante Fowler Jr

21. CB Bryce Callahan

22. DT Muhammad Wilkerson

23. RB Mark Ingram

24. RB Jay Ajayi

25. WR Tyrell Williams

Others: DT Henry Anderson, CB Darqueze Dennard, ED MIchael Johnson, WR Adam Humphries, ED Chris Long, WR John Brown, WR Cole Beasley, WR Kevin White, S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, S Clayton Geathers, LB Avery Williamson, LB Vincent Rey, OT Ereck Flowers.
