This is the second half of my take on what the revamped roster of the Oakland Raiders will look like come Week 1. After focusing on the offense last week, now we turn our attention to defense.

The lack of pass rush and depth across the board cost them several games in which they led going into the 4th quarter and that ultimately spelled their doom. Defensive Coordinator, Jason Tarver had to get creative with his LBs...
