The Oakland Raiders did a lot to upgrade their roster this offseason. There is a good chance that the Raiders will field at least 10 new starters on both sides of the ball this season. And that does not include potential new starters on special teams as well. But despite the influx of talent, this is still a team that is far from being without any holes.

It’s difficult to argue it is a playoff caliber roster with a straight face, especially considering the division the Raiders play in (where every other team went to the playoffs in 2013). As an NFL team, no matter where in the league you stand, one always has to be thinking about getting better.
