The Las Vegas Raiders have major question marks on the defensive side of the ball, and here is one for each position group.
The Las Vegas defense has constantly struggled to be better than mediocre, and last season, they were once again one of the worst groups in all of football. Many blame the defensive issues on Paul Guenther, the team’s former defensive coordinator, who was fired towards the end of the 2020 NFL season.
Now that the team has a new coordinator in Gus Bradley, they should be able to at least be average this season. Bradley comes to the Raiders from division rival Los Angeles, where he served in the same role and made the Chargers’ defense better every season he was there.
With Las Vegas, he will be expected to come in and change the narrative surrounding this group, and he certainly has some talented players to work with. Entering training camp, a lot of questions still remain, though. Can certain players improve in 2021? Will the pass rush be any better? How will the players mold to Bradley’s scheme?
We won’t know for sure until the season starts, and until then, here are some answers to these big questions.
