Oakland Raiders' projected roster
By Bill Williamson
Examining the Oakland Raiders' roster:
We might not know the exact order of this group for a while, but these are your three quarterbacks.
RUNNING BACKS (3)
The Raiders are strong here. Murray has potential to play this year.
Reece and his understudy complete a solid backfield.
Butler has done enough to make the team. This group is deeeper than recent Raiders receiver groups.
TIGHT ENDS (3)
This is a work in progress. Ausberry's injury could be an issue. I think this is a position Oakland looks to upgrade on the waiver wire.
OFFENSIVE LINEMEN (9)
Not a perfect group, but the depth has improved here.
DEFENSIVE LINEMEN (8)
Ellis has been dealing with a concussion for an extended period, but he should be safe.
The are some injury issues here, so perhaps this spot is fluid.
Really like this group. It will be better when D.J. Hayden gets healthy.
Usama Young and Ross could be battling to the end.
Nothing wrong with this trio.
