Raiders safety group relying on Marcus Epps in a big way

Marcus Epps: Maybe the arrival on defense that I am most excited for. Marcus Epps helped the Philadelphia Eagles to the Super Bowl last season and brings incredible talent, leadership, and experience to this position group.

Tre'Von Moehrig: One of the players on this defense with the most eyes on him this summer, and during the reular season will be Tre'Von Moehrig. He was solid as a rooke in 2021, but took a step backward last season, so hopefully the arrival of Epps can help him figure things out.

Jaquan Johnson: Jaquan Johnson is a veteran safety who should bring depth as a backup safety in 2023. He will have competition this summer, but the hope is that he can crack the roster.

Roderic Teamer: Roderic Teamer made the Raiders 53-man roster out of camp last year, but with more talent at the position in 2023, the hill is going to be harder to climb.

Isaiah Pola-Mao: This is a kid who is turning heads in camp this year, and when all is said and done, could be a sleeper to crack the 53-man roster.

Jaydon Grant: Camp body at the position group, but Grant has seven-years college experience, so he could hang on as a practice squad player.

Chris Smith II: A steal of a Day 3 pick by the Raiders in the 2023 NFL Draft, Chris Smith II not only will make the roster, but could challenge for a starting job at some point during his rookie season.
