Raiders at Dolphins: 2022 preseason game No. 3 takeaways
Amik Robertson’s days as a Raider are numbered
Once again, Roberton is the weakest link. And I don’t mean once again as this is the second preseason contest in a row where the 24-year-old corner was constantly beaten and picked on, but once again as in virtually every week since the fourth-round pick was selected in the 2020 NFL Draft.
That sounds harsh, but it’s the cold truth. During Robertson’s rookie season, the cornerback surrendered an opposing quarterback rating of 149.3. This number is just 9.0 short of a perfect quarterback rating. In 2021, this number dropped only slightly to 135.4.
Robertson allowed a career-high completion percentage last season (72.2%), and missed a career-high percentage of tackles (17.4%). Teams haven’t only picked on Robertson this preseason, but have done so ever since the 24-year-old first entered the league. With Darius Philips and Anthony Averett now giving depth to the roster, especially Philips who can play nickel, there’s no longer a need to put up with such a liability.
Thayer Munford has made some noise as a possible answer at RT for the Raiders. All signs point to him being a possible good player there.
Don’t expect the Raiders to hold onto their fourth-round pick for much longer.
