The Las Vegas Raiders made it a point to upgrade at wide receiver this offseason, and the new group has already draw rave reviews.
The Oakland Raiders had their issues on the offensive side of the ball last season, especially at wide receiver, where wholesale changes were made this offseason. The Raiders utilized two of their seven draft picks on the position group, while also adding a Super Bowl hero to the mix in free agency.
As training camp continues to roll along with a month before the regular season kicks off, albeit in strange fashion with no fans, the team has to be happy with what they have at the position group. What was once a weakness has become a strength, and while most national media is not sold on the collection of talent yet, they will be once the offense gets going in September.
A nice blend of rookies and veterans now make up an extremely deep wide receiver group, one that the coaching staff is going to have some tough decisions to make in terms of personnel as we inch closer to Week 1. That is a good problem to have, and through the first week or so of camp, guys are starting to get rave reviews from teammates and coaches alike.
Here is a look at the 2020 Raiders wide receivers, and why fans should be excited about this collection of talent.
