2015 Position Outlook: Safety

A look at the Raiders' safeties as they head into the 2015 season

On Roster: Nate Allen, Larry Asante, Jonathan Dowling, Jimmy Hall, Tevin McDonald, Brandian Ross, Charles Woodson

Projected Starters: Nate Allen and Charles Woodson

Outlook: There’s no questions who will be starting at safety for the Raiders after they shelled out the money for Nate Allen to pair him up with the veteran Charles Woodson. Woodson had an amazing year last season and doesn’t appear ready to let age get the best of him. The Raiders were forced to start Brandian Ross for much of last season after loving Tyvon Branch to injury, and he improved throughout the year. There’s no question that Allen can play, but he will have to prove that he can live up to the contract the Raiders gave to him.
