Now a week into the open free agency period, most of the big names and a lot of the smaller ones are off the board, and teams have essentially added all the key players they intended to add using free agency. While a few more trades and low-visibility signings are probably still on the agenda between now and the NFL Draft next month, we have a pretty good idea what most teams veteran rosters are looking like going into the 2015 season.

Reggie McKenzie and the Raiders frustrated a lot of fans and observers by failing to woo big-ticket names like Ndamukong Suh over the last week, and signing players who were generally under the radar and some consider perhaps of poorer quality. But McKenzie has a plan and a philosophy, and that philosophy was executed in a number of relatively inexpensive signings of projected starters who can be at a minimum serviceable going into next year. Here’s a look at the Raider roster, position group by position group, going into the Draft.
