#3. Wesley Woodyard

Age: 28 (When season starts)

2013 Stats:  14 games, 84 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 1 INT, 0 TD’s 

Career Stats: 87 games played, 300 tackles, 8 sacks, 5 INT’s, 0 TD’s

A good fit if….: Raiders need some quality depth and competition at MLB…

Wesley Woodyard was a player on the rise and won the MLB spot for the Broncos out of training camp. But a stinger injury in week 5 derailed his season, and cost him his starting position. The Broncos appear to be moving on, despite Woodyard being a team captain and special teams ace in the past. Woodyard when healthy is another versatile linebacker, who can be a thumper in the run game, and adequate in coverage. Woodyard would provide a hard-hitting LB for the Raiders who could start in a pinch, and be a quality special teams player.

Rating: 6.0

Chances of landing in Oakland: 25%
