Keelan Doss one of PFF top-25 rookies through Week 3 of preseason
As an undrafted free agent out of UC Davis, Doss elected to stay in his home state to try and earn his way as an Oakland Raider. So far, Doss has shown he is every bit of a Gruden Grinder. Doss has been a short-pass receiver for the Raiders, with 11 of his 14 total targets being nine yards or less. On those targets, Doss has averaged 4.6 yards after the catch, showing solid after-the-catch ability. Doss is paving his way to a 53-man roster spot with two broken tackles, three explosive plays and two contested catches overall.
