Round 7: Brice Butler
I can’t understand for the life of me why Brice Butler can’t get on the field more when the Raiders don’t have any receivers. Ever since the first San Diego Chargers game, Butler has come in and made plays when his number is called then he get’s sent back to the bench. He has No. 1 receiver skills as his speed and route running get him open and he has big-time hands to make the most difficult of catches.
The rest of the receivers wear defensive backs like a cape and can’t get open for rookie quarterback Derek Carr to throw to. The Raiders have the worst passing offense in the NFL so having James Jones, Andre Holmes and Kenbrell Thompkins be the main guys isn’t working. Butler has A.J. Green type talent and just needs an opportunity to go out there and help Carr wake the Raiders’ passing game up,
