Seth Roberts (#85)-

Admittedly, as is the case with a lot of undrafted players, I know little to nothing about him.  Roberts hails out of West Alabama and stands 6′ 2″, and 196 pounds.  Again, another prototype WR in body.  However, it remains to be seen where he will fit in on the Oakland Raiders roster.  Still, the Raiders are brining him into Training Camp as an undrafted rookie to see if he can shake up things.  Maybe there was something the Raiders liked about him while the scouts were out there searching.

One of the biggest things that jumps out at you about Roberts is his speed.  He ran a 4.44 second 40 yard dash time, and that’s pretty impressive.  He could pan out to be a diamond in the rough, but Raider Nation will have to wait and see.  It’s July, and Training Camp is right around the corner where he can prove his worth or fall on the sword.

Rashaan Vaughn (#13) (No Picture Found)

Originally signed by the New York Jets in 2013 as an undrafted free agent, he was released after a short stint on the Jets practice squad.  We’ll pretty much call him a rookie this year, as he has very little NFL experience.  Although, he has had the Training Camp experience.  This 6′ 1″ 190 pound WR out of Oregon (Ducks) could do well where?  That’s right, on Special Teams.

Let’s face it, there’s not much room at the top of the WR depth chart, but there is a place on Special Teams if he can prove his worth.  Then, he can develop his WR skills to get himself noticed.  With all the players the Raiders have at WR, I find it hard to see him on the roster at the end of August.  Maybe I will be pleasantly surprised?

This covers the remainder of the WR’s on the Oakland Raiders roster.  If I didn’t cover enough information about your favorite wideout then I apologize, but things will get discussed as the team progresses toward the regular season.  This is not the last you’ll hear about some of these WR’s, so keep your fingers crossed for your guy to make the team.  Go Raiders!
