Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie has put a good amount of faith into his young group of cornerbacks, as he chose to add little veteran presence via free agency to a Raiders’ secondary that allowed 29 touchdowns and failed to bring in more than nine interceptions in 2014.

The average age of Oakland’s top five cornerbacks currently on the roster is a little over 25 years old, while the group also has a combined 17 starts.

Whether or not McKenzie’s decision to rely on this slew of defensive back turns out to be successful, from the outside looking in, it simply doesn’t look good.

With that being said, here is closer look at the Oakland’s top corners and their progress over the course of the offseason.
