Two Las Vegas Raiders made their debut on the NFL Top 100 list this week but their rankings are far too low for players of their caliber.
As we get close to the start of training camp, the NFL Network has begun releasing their annual Top 100 players list, and two Las Vegas Raiders made their first appearance on Sunday. This list is voted on by the players, so while there may be no media bias, there is certainly going to be lots of teammate, division, or conference rival bias in the voting.
It’s not a perfect system by any means and we have seen some controversy already.
Before we go in to the rankings, and the valid criticism of where Josh Jacobs and Darren Waller have ended up, let’s first recognize the improvement the Las Vegas Raiders have made to the roster. As pointed out by Brad Weiss, Site Expert here at Just Blog Baby, the Raiders only made one appearance on the 2019 NFL Top 100, and it was Antonio Brown, a player who didn’t play a single snap for the Silver and Black.
This year, we are only 30 players in and we have already had two Raiders appear, with the possibility of more to come. The cupboard was bare in 2018, and it was reflected in the standings, but Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock have already done wonders to restock and reload.
Now on to the rankings of the Raiders two best offensive weapons.
