How the Raiders fared in PFF’s positional rankings

PFF's annual positional rankings are out, and I dissect the Raiders' rankings here.

Wide Receiver

Ranking: #6: Davante Adams

My View: Finally, this feels about right. I am actually surprised Adams is this high, not because of his ability, but because of the “down” season he had last year compared to his previous years. Still, he managed over 1100 yards and 8 touchdowns despite the tumultuous season our offense had, and thankfully, he is still highly regarded by PFF and amongst his peers. I cannot argue that anyone ahead of him should be behind him, and guys like Amon-Ra St. Brown and Brandon Aiyuk are behind him but have arguments to actually be ahead of him. However, even though I would understand him falling to the #8 spot, this ranking is exactly right. With hopefully a more stable quarterback situation this year, DA can once again rise near the very top of this list, but #6 will do for now.
