The Las Vegas Raiders stayed perfect in preseason game No. 2 against the Los Angeles Rams, and here is a 53-man prediction after the victory.
With two preseason games in the books, players are starting to get established in terms of their roles, and whether or not they are going to make the 53-man roster. The Las Vegas Raiders have bolstered the roster on both sides of the ball, leading to some interesting position battles, as well as some players who have come out of nowhere to make their case for a roster spot.
With one preseason game remaining, we take a crack at a possible Week 1 53-man roster.
Las Vegas Raiders: 2021 53-man roster prediction after preseason Game No. 2
Special Teams (3): Daniel Carlson, Trent Sieg, A.J. Cole
No big surprise here, as Daniel Carlson, A.J. Cole, and Trent Sieg will be the kicker, punter, and long snapper for the Raiders this season. The only way this changes is if there are injuries, or if anyone of them struggles, but Carlson has proven to be a very reliable kicker since joining the organization a few years back.
As it stands, the Raiders are young, and talented at these three specialist positions, and they should not mess with this group unless they absolutely need to down the road. For 2021, these are the specialist.
