Las Vegas Raiders: Adams and Renfrow have talent around them at WR
Keelan Cole is the top option to be the starting receiver for the Raiders. Cole had consistently productive seasons as a rotation receiver in Jacksonville, including 748 yards as an undrafted rookie receiver. Cole has shown the ability to get open despite never playing with any solid quarterbacks.
Cole has put up better numbers than Hollins and Robinson despite playing with quarterbacks such as Blake Bortles, Cody Kessler, Gardner Minshew, Mike Glennon, Zach Wilson, and Mike White for most of his career. Derek Carr will be the best quarterback Cole has ever played with.
Cole is 29 and is not a long-term option for the Raiders. He is a solid starting receiver and should easily win this role with Edwards traded. Cole is a big receiver who can get open and should feast with so little attention on him in this offense.
The AFC West will arguably be the toughest division in football next season. So, who's the team to beat? Is it the Las Vegas Raiders?
Not only has Cole never played with a quarterback like Carr, but he’s never had such good teammates to open up the field for him. Cole likely won’t eclipse his career highs simply due to volume, but he should easily be able to consistently impact the game. Cole will have opportunities and is easily the best in-house option for this role.
