The Las Vegas Raiders have their second preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday and here are 5 players who must impress.
The Las Vegas Raiders are coming off a solid win against the Seahawks where they beat Seattle 20-7 in the team’s first preseason game. The Raiders dominated on all sides of the ball and the defense made a compelling case for being one of the better units over the weekend.
This being said, the Raiders still have the looming roster cuts hanging over their heads. This weekend, they will have another chance to see the players in action after the first round of roster cuts. After scrimmaging against the Los Angeles Rams this week, they battle it out against them on Saturday night in preseason game No. 2.
Here are five players that need to impress to either continue to stake claim to a roster spot, or to keep their position on the depth chart.
Las Vegas Raiders: 5 players who must impress against the Los Angeles Rams
Keelan Doss, Wide Receiver
Keelan Doss is an Alameda native, and many felt he should have made the 53-man roster during last year’s preseason. However, he was eventually sent to the practice squad, where he was picked up by the Jacksonville Jaguars before the Raiders came calling to bring him back.
Doss has a lot of natural talent, but on a receiver-rich team, it’s hard to make yourself known. He has an outstanding game against Seattle, and in Game No. 2, he can continue to try and earn a spot as the No. 6 wide receiver on this roster.
