Oakland Raiders pre-training camp 53-man roster prediction
By Sanjit T.
Cornerback(6): Gareon Conley, Isaiah Johnson, Daryl Worley, Trayvon Mullen, Nick Nelson, Nevin Lawson
Gareon Conley came on strong last year, and if he is able to build on that, we will see a whole new defense this year. Worley is another player who is underrated. He is 24 years old right now, and can still get much better.
Between Conley, Worley, and 2019 second round draft pick Trayvon Mullen, the Raiders should be able to put together their two starting corners. In fact, while young, this could be a group that develops into a strength for Oakland this season, and will certainly be a strength as the team makes the move to Las Vegas.
Nick Nelson was a fourth round pick of the team in 2018, and he showed that he can certainly play at the NFL level as a rookie when he was not injured. Nevin Lawson was a guy who was brought in via free agency this offseason, and while he is not the biggest named pickup, he is certainly a player who can help this defense.
