Oakland Raiders, Def, Raiders
2014 Outlook: Bye Week Fill-inLast updated on Jul-10-2014 by Larry Gold
SHOCKING, BUT TRUE: It may be a shock to some, but the Raiders defense wasn't so bad last season. Yes they got shredded by Peyton Manning twice and we all remember Nick Foles' career day, but the team put together some impressive numbers. The unit sacked the quarterback 44 times, ranking 10th in the league. The Silver and Black also picked off opposing QBs 20 times, good for seventh in the league. New face Justin Tuck brings leadership and a winning pedigree. Khalil Mack was one of the most coveted pass-rushers in the draft and is expected to make an immediate impact. Don't run out and chase the Raiders defense in your draft, but don't be surprised if they are a viable start against the right opponent during the season.
