Oakland Raiders Depth Chart 2018 Raiders Depth Chart

4-12, 4th AFC West

at KC

6:00 pm GMT, 12/30

Oakland is a team that spiraled out of control, and the depth chart is even more depleted from the beginning of the season. Derek Carr is now an uncertain starting quarterback for Oakland, and there isn’t much backing him up that will keep the pressure on. They traded for A.J. McCarron and signed Nathan Peterman. You know things are bad when you take two Bills quarterbacks in the same season. Oakland signed Marshawn Lynch in the offseason, but he ended up missing half the year. Doug Martin ended up being the starting running back, with Jalen Richard backing him up. The Raiders started the season with Amari Cooper, but then traded him to Dallas, where he is now thriving. Cooper left a huge cap, especially after Michael Crabtree did the season prior to the season. Jordy Nelson, Seth Roberts, and Dwayne Harris all made up the core, but Nelson picked up the most volume as the WR1 after they traded Cooper. Jared Cook was the starting tight end all season long, and for the first time in a while where Oakland didn’t use a committee.

Preseason Analysis: Chucky is Back!

The Jon Gruden experiment is underway in Oakland, and a few other experiments are as well. While Marshawn Lynch is still there, the Raiders signed Doug Martin, who was in Tampa Bay last season to get some depth. It is unclear if Deandre Washington will sneak in for some passing game work, but Martin and Lynch look like they are headed for a bit of a timeshare. The Jordy Nelson move might be one of the bigger offseason stories, but after watching Nelson slip away in Green Bay, we can’t say this is an upgrade over Michael Crabtree. Oakland might look to play some smash mouth football, but after Amari Cooper, who has yet to fully evolve into what was expected, this is not a great core of receivers. Jared Cook flashed some upside on plays, and still is a downfield tight end. There is a chance he could land some more targets this season with Crabtree out of the picture and Nelson being 32 years old. Martavis Bryant is here, and could be a threat, but after last season we need a wait and see approach. What was once a promising roster for the future, it has sort of fizzled out a bit. 2018 will be an interesting year for the future of this organization and where it is headed.

During the 2017 NFL season, the Oakland Raiders were widely considered one of the more disappointing teams in the league. The Raiders were highly anticipated to be one of the top contenders for the AFC title after finishing in 2016 season with 12 wins in 4 losses. However, a variety of key injuries and other setbacks hampered the team all year, and they ended up winning just 6 games in 2017 and finished far outside of the playoff race. While the Raiders had a disappointing season in 2017, there is plenty of reason for optimism for 2018. Overall, there are a variety of key predictions regarding the team's performance in the upcoming season. One player on the Raiders that seemed to take a big step back last season was quarterback Derek Carr. During the 2016 season, car look like one of the best young quarterbacks in the league. However, last season the team seem to struggle and he and more of a problem with interceptions than he had in the past. However, the Raiders have made some changes and improvements that should make it easy for him to be successful again. During the offseason, the Raiders were able to sign free agent Jordy Nelson. For the past few season, Nelson has been one of the top wide receivers in the NFL while he played for the Green Bay Packers. However, Nelson has had issues with injuries in his career and he will need to stay on the field in order for the Raiders to be successful. Nelson will be able to join Amari Cooper to form a wide receiver set that will be among the best in the league.

Top Rookies

For the Raiders to return to their 2016 season level of success, they will need to get good support from their rookies. During the 2018 NFL Draft, the biggest addition that the Raiders made was by drafting offensive tackle Kolton Miller with the 15ht overall pick. Miller, who previously played at UCLA will be a big improvement at right tackle and should help to give Carr more time to throw. The Raiders drafted another tackle, Brandon Parker out of North Carolnia A&T, in the third round, which will give them more depth. Defensively, the Raiders clearly are more committed to stopping the run and getting better pass protection. During the draft, they were able to select Arden Key from LSU in the third round and defensive tackle PJ Hall from Sam Houston State. Both of these players are considered among the best at their position and will allow the team to control the line of scrimmage. Overall, the Raiders will have plenty of opportunities and challenges in 2018. By hiring coach Jon Gruden to a long-term deal, the team is clearly invested in its future. Gruden is an offensive-minded coach and now has the talent on the roster to run his schemes. If the team is able to avoid injury all year, they should do quite well.
