Who are the No. 4 and 5 wide receivers?
Last season, the Raiders deployed a tandem of Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree at the top of the depth chart at wide receiver. That is certainly going to look a lot different this season, as Crabtree was released by the team this offseason, and replaced by Jordy Nelson from the Green Bay Packers.
Not happy with having only Cooper and Nelson at the top of the position group, the Raiders went out and struck a draft day deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers for Martavis Bryant. Bryant is going to give the Raiders another explosive weapon on the outside, giving Derek Carr his best trio of wideouts in his career.
While the first three on the depth chart are set, the question remains as to who is going to be the fourth and fifth wideout to make the team. Oakland traded for Ryan Switzer right after the 2018 NFL Draft, and he has wowed coaches during OTAs, and he is a guy who could be used all over the field.
Seth Roberts got his money this offseason, but is not a lock to make the team, and Griff Whalen was also signed via free agency. In the seventh round of the draft, the Raiders selected big Oklahoma State wide receiver Marcell Ateman, so the race for the fourth and fifth spot on the depth chart is going to be an exciting one this summer.
