Oakland Raiders: 5 Most Impressive Training Camp Performances so Far

As the Oakland Raiders move closer to their first preseason game, training camp practices become increasingly important. The preseason games give players the opportunity to earn roster spots. For that to happen, they need to get on the field. And that playing time is earned in camp.

When looking for players who have impressed so far, several expected names pop up. Defensively, Khalil Mack has looked very good as a pass-rusher. On offense, Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree have continued to increase the distance between themselves and the other wide receivers on the roster.
