Wide Receiver (6): Amari Cooper, Jordy Nelson, Martavis Bryant, Dwayne Harris, Marcell Ateman, Seth Roberts
The wide receiver group has seen some movement over the past few days, as Griff Whalen was moved to the injured reserve, and Ryan Switzer was traded to the Pittsburgh Steelers. That opened up spots for a couple of guys who may not have made the team is Switzer has performed better this summer.
One of those guys is rookie Marcell Ateman, who has the size to be a real difference maker in the red zone. He and Seth Roberts were saved by the recent moves, but heading into the last preseason game, Johnny Holton is making it very hard for the Raiders not to have him on the 53-man.
Jordy Nelson, Amari Cooper, and Martavis Bryant will be at the top of the depth chart, and Dwayne Harris is going to play in the slot, and be the team’s return man. His spot on the roster is locked in, so keep an eye on Ateman, Holton, and Roberts Thursday night, as they continue to try to cement their place on the roster.
