Las Vegas Raiders: 4 possible first-time All-Pros in 2021
Whether it comes down to the well-known red zone blunders of the 2020 Raiders or just well-rounded talent in the former Auburn product, Daniel Carlson had a year to remember in his second season with the Raiders. In fact, it’s hard to believe he did not make an All-Pro team last season.
The kicker broke the Raider record for most points scored in a season, breaking the record of long-time Raider Sebastian Janikowski in the process. With the third season under his belt, the sky or the goalposts in his case, are the limit for Carlson.
With a knack for shattering records (he is also the all-time leading scorer in the SEC), it seems that Carlson should build upon his record-setting 2020 season. Hopefully, the red zone issues for the Raiders are fixed, but either way, Carlson will be a fixture for the Raiders for the foreseeable future.
An All-Pro team is either coming now or very soon for the talented kicker.
