Raiders: 3 offensive training camp battles to keep an eye on in 2022
The biggest offseason acquisition for this Raiders offense was Adams, an All-Pro wide receiver who happens to be best friends with quarterback Derek Carr. However, he was not the only wideout brought in to bolster this position group, and as a whole, the Silver and Black are in a much better position at wide receiver than they were a year ago.
There will be a three-man race for the WR3 spot, as Adams will be the WR1 on the outside, and Hunter Renfrow will assume his slot wideout spot. Renfrow is coming off a breakout season for the Raiders, hauling in over 100 catches, so the options in the passing game at this position group are numerous.
The three men who will battle it out for this role will be Mack Hollins, Demarcus Robinson, and Keelan Cole, all very good options. As of now, I like Robinson to get the job, but this is a battle that is going to rage on all summer long, and in the end, any of these guys who be an upgrade over the depth the Raiders had last year.
