Projecting where the Oakland Raiders are heading in terms of defensive scheme after a busy free agency.
In a time where fans and pundits are preparing for the draft through prospect examination and big boards (of which this blog has writers who have done an exceptional job providing solid content), I wanted to take a look at the Raiders through a different lens.
Oakland has become in recent years a very mercurial organization in the sense that they do not let their intentions be known. However, we operate in a world that requires definitions in order to help us understand what it is we are all witnessing.
With that in mind, I have been trying to define the Raider defense. The debates over scheme are rampant, but there is one past example that can give all Raiders fans some perspective on what Ken Norton Jr has devised, which is truly unique. The question is simple, “Where are the Raiders heading with their 2016 defensive scheme?” The answer, well that will take some explanation.
