Here are five Raiders to watch in preseason opener vs Seahawks


Preseason is about people. The Raiders are attempting to frame a list and a profundity outline and large numbers of these players will be exhibiting themselves to procure a spot in this group as well as playing time. Here are five Raiders to look for as they jockey for position on this crew.

WR Bryan Edwards

Edwards had a harsh day in the current week in camp, dropping two passes, one of which was then taken out by Trayvon Mullen. Yet, other than that, he’s for the most part been exhibiting a similar 50/50 ball ability we saw from him in last year’s camp.

The issue was that once it came time to put those abilities on the field, it didn’t appear. A physical issue hampered him from the beginning and we never saw his high-flying gymnastic gets surprise the class. We get our first opportunity to perceive what a year added to his repertoire has accomplished for him.

DT Solomon Thomas

This previous third by and large pick had within track on the beginning 3-tech work when he showed up. He has lost a great deal of ground from that point forward. Presently in addition to the fact that he is in a fight with the other two cautious handles that were endorsed around a similar time, yet he has veteran Gerald McCoy to battle with also.

Thomas is persuaded that playing 5-tech DE with the 49ers was an essential factor in his battles over his initial four seasons. Furthermore, that a transition to 3-tech DT will be extraordinary for him. Yet, reports are that the Raiders might believe he’s excessively little for the position, thus the expansion of McCoy. Thomas will have the chance to demonstrate his size will not be an issue.

DT Darius Philon

One of the players contending with Thomas for reps in the DT revolution is Philon. He has drawn some commendation from his mentors for his leave surge behind the center. I have seen some of it direct. Watch out for Philon similarly as for Thomas as this game is a major advance for both in their fight at that position.

DE Carl Nassib

Nassib came out as gay this late spring. What difference does that make here? Since Nassib conceded he felt a gigantic load all through his profession from staying quiet about his sexual direction. Also, that weight was lifted when he came out. Also, he has felt much improved and better each day from that point forward, in enormous part because of the colossal help he’s gotten from his colleagues and the class.

Nassib had 12.5 sacks in the two seasons prior to marking with the Raiders. Envision what sort of player he can be the point at which he isn’t troubled by anything outside of essentially playing his best football? Ponder the sort of player Darren Waller has become since he opened up about his fixation? I most definitely, am truly anticipating seeing Nassib show his maximum capacity.

LB Tanner Muse

Considering Muse a veteran may not be precise. In any case, he’s not a new kid on the block all things considered. In fact he’s a first-year player since he didn’t play last season. Dream has seen a decent measure of time with the principal group at solid side linebacker and was recorded as such on the informal profundity outline.

A third-round pick in 2020, Muse was relied upon to be an exceptional groups fellow at first. Basically until he built up a little and got some time getting acquainted with everything at the NFL level. Indeed, despite the fact that he hasn’t played, he has been learning and been building up. We get our first gander at how he’s showing up in this game.
