This is where it all begins. Of course McFadden will make it; Shields and Schillens have good chances, but not as good as Tyvon Branch who will likely return kicks, Trevor Scott has a good chance too for depth. Then you have the undrafted guys like Greyson Gunheim, Shane Simmons, Malik Jackson, Matt Hahn, Tranell Morant, Darrik Brown, Darrell Strong, Brandon Rodd, and Chris Wagner just to name a few...
Hopefully guys taken last year like Michael Bush and Johnnie Lee Higgins that were projected as late round steals can redeam themselves in camp and show the rest of the NFL who they are. Higgin seemed like a good deep threat WR and punt returner, but had problems fumbling. Bush was on PUP list all year and some seem to have forgotten about him after the drafting of McFadden.

tyvon branch has a 29.9 punt return avg. and will take chris carr's place. even mcfadden, will join that spot on special occasions to start with . kiffin does not want to start mcfadden fast but is sure itchie. and if he does great, watch out all (rb's)! they are getting on mcd's case right now on tucking that ball and also as passing the ball.now, that would look beautiful! on the FIRST PLAY! TOUCH DOWN, R RAIDERS S!!!!
