Early Projections for the Oakland Raiders’ Final 53-Man Roster

There is still a fair amount of tweaking Reggie McKenzie will do to the roster, but the core is set and it's not outside the realm of possibility that every member of the 53-man roster is currently listed on Raiders.com. 

There are always a few surprises on the final roster, but 2012 may be uniquely surprising due to the "new era" under the direction of McKenzie and Dennis Allen.

Predictions this early will be horribly wrong by the time cut-down day arrives in September, but it's worthwhile to take stock of the team.

Offseason workouts and training camp will be what Allen and McKenzie use to arrive at the best possible final roster, and most of those activities have yet to take place.

The depth at running back will be a focus of many, but far more important will be how the Raiders fill out the defense.
