Oakland Raiders: Breaking Down Final Roster and Week 1 Starters

The Oakland Raiders revealed their final cuts to meet the 53-man roster deadline, which presented some question marks on both sides of the ball.

The Raiders won’t reveal the official depth chart for Week 1 of the season until September 8, leaving room for speculation on where the remaining players rank at their positions.

The team made some intriguing decisions specifically at tight end and cornerback. Furthermore, T.J. Carrie remains as the only player on the roster to record a punt return during the preseason.

The overhaul at some positions and the lack of depth at other positions raises the possibility of waiver-wire pickups prior to the opening kickoff on September 13.

Prior to those potential changes, here’s a realistic look at the depth chart with the 53 players who made the cut Saturday.
