Las Vegas Raiders: 3 position groups that could go from a question to a strength
Last season, the Raiders certainly struggled in the defensive backfield, as both the cornerback and safety spots were atrocious at times. It seemed like every week the team was counting on someone new to step up, and in the end, both groups wildly underperformed despite the fact there was first-round talent within each unit.
In 2021, questions still remain at both spots, and while cornerback still is worrisome, you have to like what the team has done in terms of the safety spot. They not only brought back Karl Joseph, but they also added Tre’Von Moehrig in the second round, someone who many felt was a first round talent at the position.
If Johnathan Abram can come back and be the player the team thought he was when they took him in the first round in 2019, then there is enough depth, and talent for this to be one of the better young units in the league. In fact, with Gus Bradley being a defensive back specialist, they have the right defensive coordinator at the helm, making this an interesting group to keep an eye on this summer.
