Ranking the Las Vegas Raiders offensive position groups against the AFC West
By Matt Holder
The Las Vegas Raiders have been busy this offseason, making a handful of significant additions on offense, but how do they stack up against the rest of the AFC West?
Free agency and the 2020 NFL Draft are over, which means we’ve reached the calm portion of the offseason for every team, including the Las Vegas Raiders. Every organization has its 90-man roster intact so naturally, it’s time to start comparing each team to one another and gauge who has the advantage heading into the regular season.
Thus, how does each offensive position group for the Raiders stack up against the rest of the AFC West?
The Raiders set out to improve offensively during free agency, adding a few key players like Marcus Mariota and Jason Witten. During the draft, head coach Jon Gruden and general manager Mike Mayock continued to address that side of the ball by selecting Henry Ruggs III, Lynn Bowden, and Bryan Edwards.
However, Las Vegas wasn’t the only team in the division that was busy this offseason as Bryan Bulaga, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, and Jerry Jeudy have all moved out west.
Here, I take a stab at ranking each offensive position group in the AFC West to see how the Silver and Black compare to their rivals. Of course, the starters will carry the most weight but I’ll also take depth into account.
Now, onto the rankings!
