Like every NFL team, the Las Vegas Raiders have roster uncertainties. Following virtual OTAs, we’ll answer six questions with a fact or fiction verdict.

With so many offseason questions concerning the Las Vegas Raiders roster and the 2020 season, the Silver and Black crystal ball tells all.

Every year, acquisitions and optimism bring hope for the next campaign, but a new year also raises some questions. As incoming players acclimate themselves to the system, we wonder what happens to holdovers at their positions. Those in secured roles face bigger expectations.

Let’s start with the most notable discussion at quarterback. Will Derek Carr respond well to an experienced competitor behind him? Is he playing to keep his job? What will it take for head coach Jon Gruden to make a switch under center?

Typically, teams expect first-round picks to contribute right away. Players and coaches won’t use excuses to explain a lack of development, however, what could we realistically expect from the Raiders’ first-rounders without a single on-field practice through June because of coronavirus restrictions?

The Raiders will go into the 2020 term with high hopes for a former first-rounder who’s steadily improved over the last two years. Is he primed for a leap worthy of notable accolades?

Take a look at the five questions with a verdict for each query below. How will all of these scenarios pan out?
