Special Teams (3)- Daniel Carlson, AJ Cole, Andrew DePaola
Daniel Carlson has become automatic, and he proved that against the Packers, going 3-for-3 in field goals, including the game-winner. The Raiders are lucky to have found such a solid, young kicker last season, as the team was looking for someone to finally be a constant in the position, like Sebastian Janikowski was for 17 seasons.
A.J. Cole won the punting job early in camp, as many believed he would, and will have high expectations from Raider Nation. Hopefully Cole is on the field as little as possible, but pinning people inside the five can be as important as anything in a football game. He displayed pinpoint accuracy against Green Bay.
The Raiders special teams group is a young one, but it is one that we should have a lot of confidence in. Both Carlson and Cole have shown what they are capable of, and they will have a ton of opportunities to earn the respect from Raiders fans in 2019.
