Las Vegas Raiders 53-man 2020 Week 1 roster prediction

Cornerback (7): Trayvon Mullen, Damon Arnette, Prince Amukamara, Lamarcus Joyner, Amik Robertson, Isaiah Johnson, Keisean Nixon

The Raiders have completely changed their cornerback group, and the position has potential to be great. Trayvon Mullen returns as the teams CB1, as he played extremely well once he got the chance last season, and he has come to camp ready to lead a nice blend of young talent, as well as veterans.

Prince Amukamara will likely start off as the CB2 for the Raiders, as he is a solid veteran that is coming off a decent season with the Chicago Bears. Rookie cornerback Damon Arnette will be able to learn behind him before being thrown into the starting lineup, although Arnette has already gotten some work in with the first team in training camp.

Once seen as a bit of a reach in the first round, Arnette has come to camp and really opened some eyes with his athleticism and speed.

Slot corners Lamarcus Joyner, Amik Robertson, and Keisean Nixon will be competing for the starting job, but it is likely that they all will make the roster considering that Joyner will move between corner and free safety. Joyner had a rough first season with the Raiders, and will be pushed by the rookie Robertson in camp.
