2015 Position Outlook: Tight End

A look at Raiders tight ends heading into the 2015 season.

On Roster: Gabe Holmes, Brian Leonhardt, Mychal Rivera, Lee Smith, Clive Walford,

Projected Starter: Mychal Rivera, Clive Walford

Outlook: The Raiders may have found themself a steal in tight end Clive Walford who they drafted in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft. Walford has garnered lots of praise from the coaches and media for his offseason workouts, where he’s demenstrated his exceptional pass-catching abilities. Pairing up Walford with Mychal Rivera gives the Raiders two solid pass-catching tight ends, but we’ll have to wait and see how their blocking develops.
