Las Vegas Raiders 53-man roster prediction entering 2022 training camp
Linebacker (5): Denzel Perryman, Jayon Brown, Divine Deablo, Kenny Young, Micah Kiser
For the Raiders defense to get the job done under Graham, there has to be excellent play from the linebacker group. To accomplish this, Ziegler and his staff went out and not only made sure to bring back Denzel Perryman, who had a monster season for the Silver and Black in 2021 but also add quality talent around him.
Perryman returning brings back one of the heartbeats of this Raiders roster from a year ago, and he certainly earned another go-around with the franchise. Veterans like Jayon Brown, Kenny Young, and Micah Kiser are significant upgrades in depth from a year ago, and all figure to get a ton of playing time this season.
The big name here, however, is Divine Deablo, who I believe is on the doorstep of breaking out this upcoming season. He flashed during his rookie campaign and is well-suited for Graham’s defense, so look for him to make a major impact in Year 2.
