Oakland Raider’s Offseason Power Rankings: Vol. 2

The Top 10

1. Nnamdi Asomugha; Last Ranking (LR): 1

Unless we see a decline in a performance, he will be at the top of the food chain all season.

2. Zach Miller; LR: 2

3. Jason Campbell; LR: 4

Reportedly threw very well at last weeks OTA's, therefore he moves up a spot.

4. Richard Seymour; LR: 3

Seymour hasn't signed his tender yet. That's not terrible for a veteran, but I expect him to sign something before training camp.

5. Robert Gallery; LR: 5

6. Michael Bush; LR: 6

7. Rolando McClain; LR: 8

So far he has looked like a leader out there.

8. Louis Murphy; LR: 11

9. Tommy Kelly; LR: 12

10. Bruce Gradkowski; LR: 9

It has been become clear that it is Jason Campbell's job to lose. But Gradkowski won't be settling for a backup role, which is music to a coach's ears.

The Rest

11. Trevor Scott; LR: 10

12. Kamerion Wimbley; LR: 13

13. Tyvon Branch; LR: 15

His specialty is hitting people hard. It's kind of hard to do that at OTAs. This is the same comment for all safeties and linebackers.

14.Darren McFadden; LR: 16

Looked great in practice, but that's nothing new. If he starts performing consistently in consecutive games, that is new.

15. Chaz Schilens; LR: 7

He dropped many spots because he won't be back until training camp while recovering from foot surgery. OTAs are still practice even though its not training camp.

16. Chris Johnson; LR: 14

17. Darrius Heyward-Bey; LR: 31

He had the best practice of his life on Wednesday. He caught everything. No joke, seriously, he did. He even juked Nnamdi one time. Let's hope DHB builds on this heading into training camp.

18. Lammarr Houston; LR: 18

19. Mario Henderson; LR: 17
