Switching to the offensive side of the ball, the Raiders have a lot of depth at this position as well. The Raiders currently have 11 receivers on the training camp roster, and a bunch of them have the talent to make this roster heading into the team’s Week 1 matchup with the Denver Broncos.
Since we now know Antonio Brown is not retiring, that is supposed to be a joke, there are four receivers who are guaranteed to be on this team, and one of them is only on this team because of his special teams play. The other seven wide receivers will have to fight for there spots.
This unit as a whole has had their fair share of guys step up big time this summer, including undrafted free agent Keelan Doss, who is starting to look more and more like a lock to make this team. In addition, J.J. Nelson and Ryan Grant are two veterans who have performed well in games, making this one of the deep wideout groups we have seen in a long time.
Keon Hatcher is having another solid preseason, and we have all seen how fast Rico Gafford can be, as he burnt the Arizona Cardinals defense for a long score last Thursday. Marcell Ateman is another guy who has the talent to be on this roster, so it will be interesting to see how this all shapes up over the next couple of weeks.
