Every year, the NFL blogs of SB Nation share intel on their teams with the other blogs heading into the season for our 2020 NFL season preview. This year is no different in that regard, but the circumstances around the season are different.
In today’s installment, we take a look at the Las Vegas Raiders with some help from Silver and Black Pride.
Editor’s note: The responses are unedited and were sent in mid-July.
Notable free-agency additions: Linebacker Cory Littleon, linebacker Cory Kwiatkoski, defensive tackle Maileik Collins, quarterback Marcus Mariota
Over/under 10 wins? Under. This team won four games in 2018 and seven in 2019. If they get to nine wins, that would be nice progress and it would likely be enough for them to get into the playoff hunt.
Rookie I’m most excited about: Amik Robertson. This fourth-round pick can be a steal.
Best position battle heading into training camp: CB playing rotation. There are lot of young players that may develop quickly.
Biggest storyline heading into training camp: Derek Carr’s growth. If he doesn’t make big strides, especially with a better supporting cast, his future will be talked about again next offseason.
Under-the-radar storyline heading into training camp: Kicking competition. Daniel Carlson struggled last year. and rookie Dominik Eberle has a chance to win the job.
Notable injuries heading into training camp: Raiders are pretty healthy.
