Greg Little (#15)-

The Cleveland Browns parted ways with their second round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft (59th overall) on May 16, 2014, and the Oakland Raiders wasted no time in scooping him up on May 19th.  The 6′ 2″ 220 pound, 25-year-old, is entering his 4th season in the NFL.  Apparently he was not a part of the Browns plans moving forward with their new regime, and that’s the reason he was released.

In Little, the Raiders get a quick, shifty, and able WR.  What Little lacks is the all-inclusive word these days in Oakland, consistency.  Consistency usually translates to dropping passes thrown his way in-game situations.  Not a good thing when it comes to WR’s.  Still, Little also brings his ability to run back Kickoffs and Punts.  This is an area where he may be used more than as a WR for the Raiders.

Little is a work in progress, but he will be pushing the younger receivers to have to step their games up.  Something I think the Raiders Coaching Staff wanted in the first place, competition.
