The Las Vegas Raiders will travel to the Bay Area on Saturday to take on the San Francisco 49ers in their final preseason tuneup of 2021.
The time has come for the preseason schedule to come to a close, as the Silver and Black will head to the Bay Area on Saturday to take on the San Francisco 49ers. It has already been stated that the 49ers plan to play their starters, at least at the beginning of the game against Las Vegas, so this is going to be a good test for some of the guys desperately trying to make the 53-man roster this summer.
With that said, here are three Raiders to watch against San Francisco.
3 Raiders to watch in 2021 preseason Game No. 2 against San Francisco
Amik Robertson, Cornerback
We start on the defensive side of the ball, where Amik Robertson’s experiment at slot cornerback appears to be coming to an end. With Nate Hobbs emerging as the likely starter, the Raiders put Robertson on the outside, and he has played much better out there than he has in the slot this summer.
The Silver and Black have to get it right at the cornerback spot, and the assumption is that Casey Hayward, Trayvon Mullen, and Nate Hobbs will be the three starters against Baltimore in Week 1. However, Robertson can still make the 53-man and have a role on this defense if he continues to flourish on the outside, especially with so many question marks at the position group.
He will get his shot to face some starting wideouts on Saturday.
