I will be doing a series of Raiders camp position battles throughout the off-season starting with wide receiver. I will continue to update these battles throughout camp as roster events take place such as injuries, cuts, new signings, etc.
The current wide receivers on the 90 man roster are:
Denarius Moore #17
Denarius Moore will be the most interesting player to watch this year. He was a 5th round pick in the 2011 Draft and viewed as a young project receiver by many at the time. That is until the lockout ended and training camp got under way last year. Coaches and fans alike, quickly learned that Moore was wasting no time in making his mark in the league. He consistently went out and made play after play in camp that had everyone buzzing. Of course it’s always tough to really put a final judgement on a player in camp, so many still held back expectations until seeing him in game action. Something was different about Moore from the beginning though and it was obvious to people who w...

What’s up RaiderNation? Well, last week we spoke about the offensive juggernaut that is developing on the Raiders. This week I thought I would talk about the new defense that will be on the field this year. As we all are quite aware, the defense was our Achilles heal last year, folding in many games [...]
A 2nd round pick in 2011, Stefen Wisniewski didn’t have the best rookie year for the Oakland Raiders in 2011, but he had an excuse. According to a report by the Oakland Tribune this season, Wisniewski played the entirety of last season with a torn labrum. Moving to his natural position, center, and with new offensive coordinator Greg Knapp installing a zone blocking scheme he fits...
Mike Goodson didn’t get a carry last season, but he has some experience and he’s still young, so the Raiders traded a reserve offensive lineman to get him from the Carolina Panthers. Now he is getting the bulk of the 1st team reps in OTAs at running back. This is not an indictment on Darren McFadden, who is simply absent while leading a youth football camp, but it is something...
Reggie Mckenzie continued his aggressive push to lock up and close the book on the Oakland Raider’s 2012 draft class. The team announced the signing of 4th round draft pick Miles Burris. He is the 4th of 6 draftee’s on the Raider’s roster to be signed in just the last two days. As I mentioned [...]

There are a number of things that can classify a player as a fantasy football sleeper; it can be a player who has produced but had limited opportunities or a guy, who's raw but has the talent to excel and...

C’mon Chad: It seems that Chad Johnson was released because he is not smart enough to do what the Patriots need him to do according to the Boston Globe. He apparently lacked the “football I.Q.” to get it...

The Raiders have re-signed DT Desmond Bryant, the club announced Wednesday. The 6-5, 290-pound Bryant set career-highs in tackles (35) and sacks (five) in 2011. He appeared in all 16 games, making the first 10 starts of his pro career. In three NFL seasons, the 26-year-old Bryant has notched 88 tackles and 7.5 sacks. Terms of the deal were undisclosed. Bryant, who played collegiately...
Media were allowed into view a Raiders OTA again this week and, after some time to digest the story-lines and sift through all of the information, TFDS will attempt to pull out the pieces that are likely to affect the team.
As with most sessions this time of year, we must take much of the camp with a grain of salt. Again, the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) strictly prohibits...
The Raiders said today that they will not have to give up more than a 2012 first-round pick and 2013 second-rounder for quarterback Carson Palmer. Previously, it was believed that Oakland would also have to give up a 2013 first-rounder instead of a second-rounder to the Bengals if Palmer led the Raiders to the AFC Championship next season but there is no chance of an upgrade. A...
Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor was the late Al Davis’ final draft pick before he passed away. He made it clear that he cherishes the little time he was able to spend with Davis.
Pryor says that being the last pick of Davis’s life drives him, because he doesn’t want to be a bust in the end.
“That drives me,” Pryor said. “Because the last pick...
The Raiders have now signed their first draft picks this year, including fifth-round defensive end Jack Crawford, sixth-round defensive tackle Christo Bilukidi and seventh-round linebacker Nathan Stupar. A former Penn State standout, Crawford recorded 42 tackles with 6 1/2 sacks and two fumble recoveries. Bilukidi was a two-year starter at Georgia State after transferring from Eastern...
On Thursday, the Oakland Raiders signed three of their draft picks from this year’s class. They announced the signing of defensive end Jack Crawford, defensive tackle Christo Bilukidi and linebacker Nathan Stupar.
The Raiders only have three more draft picks to sign.
Every NFL Franchise has it’s own pantheon of football gods. That group of players who are not only historic in terms of talent, but even more than that, these are the players who you have to talk about when you tell the story of your team. This is part of a 32 article series where I tell you who I would put among that elite group. For this, it’s Mt. Rushmore. 4 players only....
