Updated 53-Man Roster Projections for Oakland Raiders Post-Preseason Week 3

Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio and his coaching staff have the tough task of narrowing down the roster to 75 players by September 1 after a tough loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Three weeks of preseason play helped some players solidify spots on the active roster yet hurt others based on production (you can refer to a previous 53-man roster projection to compare the changes made to the starting lineup and depth of each position).

Currently, the Raiders have 88 players on the roster, and at least 13 will look for work elsewhere within the next 24 hours.

We’ll fast-forward the clock and discuss starters and backups in an updated 53-man roster projection. What will the roster look like after the second round of roster cuts on September 5?

Here’s a sneak peek into the future.
