With the 2021 NFL Draft coming up in two months, the Las Vegas Raiders have more than a few concerns to address before the first round kicks off. The Raiders are likely to focus the majority of the draft choices in 2021 on their porous defense, one that finished No. 30 overall in points allowed per game last season.
On the other side of the coin, the Raiders’ offense finished top-10 in yards and points per game in 2020, as they had a 4,000-yard passer, a 1,000-yard rusher, and a 1,000-yard tight end. So although incumbent quarterback Derek Carr grabs most of the headlines from Raiders fans, one has to admit he is truly not the issue here leading into next season.
After starting the year out at 6-3, many expected the Raiders to be a playoff team last season, but for the second year in a row, they faltered down the stretch. The defense was downright atrocious at times, and we will dive into that side of the ball another time, as we keep our focus on Carr and the offense in this piece.
Despite all of the accolades on offense, there are still several questions to answer about the offense entering the 2021 season, and we take a look at three of them here.
