Who Could be Moving up on the Raiders’ Offensive Depth Chart

The Las Vegas Raiders are loaded with talent, unlike past seasons.  That makes the race for the 53-man roster, a battle of epic proportions.

Bryan Edwards, WR

Edwards is entering his second season in the league, having started only three games last season. He is anticipated to be a more contributing factor in the Raiders’ offense this season.

Nine of his 11 receptions last season went for first downs.

John Brown, WR

The Raiders were left with a void in the second starting wideout position after wide receiver Nelson Agholor signed with the New England Patriots in March.

Brown likely is the best candidate to fill the spot. Despite enduring lower body injuries last season with the Buffalo Bills, the wide receiver is a solid veteran option who recorded just over 1,000 passing yards two seasons ago.

Andre James, C

Former Raiders center Rodney Hudson also left behind an empty spot in the offensive lineup after he was traded to Arizona. James’ time is now, as the spot is likely his.

The 24-year-old is entering his third season in the league and has only made one start, which was in his rookie season. But James signed an extension with the Raiders back in March, and he’s been working with Derek Carr this offseason, via Raiders.

Alex Leatherwood, T

Aside from Brown, Leatherwood is arguably the organization’s most valuable offseason addition. He came to the franchise as the 17th pick in this year’s NFL Draft.

The 6-foot-6, 312-pound tackle is bringing championship experience to the offensive line, having won two College Football National Championships with Alabama. Leatherwood adds much talent and athleticism to a line that has been in need of a remodeling.
