Oakland Raiders: Can These Backups Crack The Starting Lineup In 2011

The 2010 NFL season is behind us.  The Raiders finished with their best record since 2002 but still finished third place in the AFC West.  That wasn't enough for Al Davis to bring back coach Cable.  Enter Hue Jackson.  Hue Jackson's Raiders will have a different look than the Tom Cable led Raiders.

Obviously the established starters will keep their positions but the Raiders do have a lot of young talent on the roster and you can expect a few of these guys to receive more playing time and maybe even become a starter for the Oakland Raiders.

Hue Jackson wants his Raiders to be a "bully."  He wants his Raiders to be a physical team that scores points and beats you up on defense.  Last season's squad was, for the most part, put together by Tom Cable.  Well, we now have a new sheriff in town and you can expect some changes.

Lets take a look at some of the Raiders' untapped talent and whether or not some of these guys will become starters in 2011 under new Head Coach Hue Jackson.
