4 Las Vegas Raiders that will be starters by this time next season
Divine Deablo, LB
The Las Vegas Raiders made the linebacker position a priority during free agency last offseason, adding Cory Littleton and Nick Kwiatkoski to the fold. While Littleton struggled in Paul Guenther’s system, Kwiatkoski actually played at a pretty high level when he was healthy, and is someone who could be in for his first Pro Bowl season in 2021.
The third starting linebacker this season will be Nicholas Morrow, who played so well last season that he earned himself a one-year deal to remain with the franchise. There is no doubt that these will be the three starting linebackers for the Raiders this season, but at this time next year, it could be time for Divine Deablo to step into a starting role.
This is a player to be very excited about, as he has a ton of physical gifts, and could be used all over the field. With Morrow entering free agency, the Silver and Black could decide to let him walk, and start Deablo, especially if he can prove during whatever playing time he gets this season that he was worth a third-round pick.
