The Raiders have until Saturday at 1:00 p.m. PST to make their final cutdown to get to the NFL-mandated 53-man roster.
The following is the best prediction of who the Raiders will keep based on what I have seen throughout training camp and preseason.
Running back (5):
Wide receiver (5):
Tight end (3):
Offensive line (8):
Defensive line (8):
Justin “Jelly” Ellis
The final roster spot may in fact go to running back Jeremy Steward because of the special teams ability he offers. That would give the Raiders six running backs, but they do like his special teams experience. They may also choose to pick someone up at another position via the waiver wire once everyone else makes their cuts as well.
