No Oakland Raiders on PFT Top 100 List


It might not be a surprise given the Oakland Raiders 2012 roster and how badly things went last season, but heading into the 2013 season not one Oakland Raiders player has cracked ProFootballTalk’s most recent list of their Top 100 NFL players.

PFT released the list of names from 50-26 and no Raiders player has cracked the list yet, meaning that the list will likely not feature a member of the Oakland Raiders roster when the final 25 names are released later this month.

Oakland’s lack of “name” players makes this omission less of a shock. Throw in Darren McFadden’s injury (he likely would have made the list if healthy) a forgettable season even by the Raiders recent standards, and roster turnover all over the depth chart and I am personally not surprised to see no Raiders on the list and besides for a handful of players couldn’t make a solid case for anyone to be on that list.

Still ProFootballTalk has been giving the Raiders the stick since Minicamp came to a close, from the #32 ranking in their Preseason Power Rankings to ripping Matt Flynn, there has not been much positive news coming out of PFT on the Raiders. This is just another in a line of pieces that will draw the ire of Raiders fans, even if it is just a silly hypothetical list during a slow news period designed to drum up interest.

    This is old the full list already came out and every team had a player on the list except the Raiders.

  • Jimmy Conway

    I don’t have a problem with this. Our roster is inexperienced and young. I have a HUGE problem with Richard Seymour making the Pro Bowl last year when he sucked for us the whole year, including being hurt and giving up at the end. Not to mention the “I am a Leader on this team and as a Veteran I don’t need to show up for OTA’s or training camp”, nonsense.

  • MADMAN

    more fuel for the nation going into regular season. 99% of these “Anal-yst” have their favorite pick or what not and hate a team because they got beat up by a raider fan rightfully. I say screw these morons and let’s have a solid year. GO RAIDER NATION

  • bob saget

    i didnt know he made it to the pro bowl… Richard Seymour going to the pro bowl makes the whole thing questionable and laughable he was one of the rocks many rocks that made the raider ship sink

  • BoStillKnows

    Based on one season of work RGIII and Luck are in the top 50 yet a future HOF’er in CWood doesn’t make the list. Somebody has an ax to grind. You know if Woodson was still in Green Bay he’d have been on this list, if only out of respect for one hell of a career.
