Oakland Raiders: Updated Week 1 53-man roster projection
By Nick Ellis
We are two days away from the Oakland Raiders second preseason game, which means it is time to take a look at their potential 53-man roster for Week 1.
The Oakland Raiders are in the middle of training camp and preseason games, the most important time to prove to the team and coaches that you belong on the roster. This offseason, the team brought in a bunch of new faces via trades, free agency, and the NFL Draft, all of whom are trying to stay on for the regular season.
Some players have already started to impress the coaches, players, and fans, breaking away from the competition in position battles. The Raiders have a much more talented roster than last season, making it much harder to not only make the roster, but to predict the final roster.
Many skilled players will be left off the roster once the day for final cuts comes, meaning that these next few weeks are the most important of their careers in some ways.
Here is a look at our latest 53-man roster projection as the Raiders head into their second pre season game on August 15th.
