Projecting Raiders' final 53-man roster before cut day originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
The Raiders have to trim their roster from 80 players to 53 by 1 p.m. Saturday. With the rebuilt roster that Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock have put together, that means some difficult decisions are looming.
Among them, whether to opt for the veteran presence of Nicholas Morrow at linebacker or bet on the long-range potential of Javin White, the undrafted rookie from UNLV who has turned heads in camp.
In addition, has tackle Brandon Parker made the necessary improvements to hold onto a roster spot on the offensive line, or does the versatility of Denzelle Good, who can play both guard and tackle, allow the Raiders to create roster flexibility elsewhere by keeping one fewer offensive lineman?
