Bottom half of the league in yards allowed
The Raiders defense was atrocious last season, ranking in the bottom half of the league in yards allowed per game. Teams were able to move the ball too easily on the Raiders in 2019, keeping the Raiders offense off the field, and rarely giving them in good field position.
The Raiders defense allowed 354.8 yards per game in 2019, not only ranking in the bottom half of the league, but also last in the AFC West. If the Raiders are going to compete with the Chiefs, they need players who will not give up big plays and can get opposing offenses off the field quickly.
There were areas of improvement last season for the Raiders defense, however, especially when it came to getting after the quarterback. Still, there are holes on all three levels of this defense, specifically at linebacker, where the entire position group could see wholesale changes in their first season in Las Vegas.
