Las Vegas Raiders: 5 most underrated moves of the 2021 offseason
Last season, the Las Vegas Raiders brought in Nelson Agholor on a one-year deal, and the hope was that he could bring depth to the wide receiver position. Las Vegas had gone out and drafted two wideouts in the 2020 NFL Draft, including one in the first round, so Agholor just needed to come in and be a veteran presence on the depth chart, and possibly make some plays.
What happened was Agholor ended up being the top wide receiver on the Raiders and parlayed that into a huge contract with the New England Patriots. To make up for that loss, the Raiders added some veteran talent in John Brown and Willie Snead this offseason, and Brown is a player to keep an eye on.
Not only will he be wearing No. 15, the number that Derek Carr seems to lock in on when it comes to wideouts, but he has the skill set to be a legitimate threat in this offense. He runs the entire route tree, is a former 1,000-yard wide receiver, and if Ruggs and Bryan Edwards continue to struggle early in their career, he could have an Agholor-like impact.
