Las Vegas Raiders: Updated 2021 53-man roster projection heading into the summer
Linebacker (6): Nicholas Morrow, Divine Deablo, Cory Littleton, Nick Kwiatkoski, Tanner Muse, Javin White
Another area that I believe the Raiders will be much improved in 2021 is the linebacker spot, where the departure of Paul Guenther is going to be big for Cory Littleton. That combination just did not gel during the 2020 season, as Littleton went from a ball-hawking playmaker with the Los Angeles Rams, to a struggling linebacker in Las Vegas.
In 2021, the arrival of Gus Bradley will put him in a better position to succeed, and they have some versatile players on the depth chart behind him. Nicholas Morrow and Nick Kwiatkoski are slated to start alongside Littleton in Bradley’s defense, and Divine Deablo and Tanner Muse should be used in several different ways.
Also, I like Javin White to make this team, as he also has the kind of versatility that Bradley looks for on his defense. Overall, these are six players who should make the roster, and if they do not get a lot of run at linebacker, Deablo, Muse, and White should be constants on special teams for Las Vegas.
