Oakland Raiders' Positions of Strength Entering 2013

Feb 2, 2013 Full story: BleacherReport 12

After a 4-12 season, the Raiders definitely have a lot of needs on the team to address in either the draft or free agency with the little cap space that they have.

Didn't even mention Shaughnessy...one of the most solid players on the DL.

I do expect McKenzie to go after Greg Jennings because of the Packer ties despite the fact that I think we are good at WR.

Jennings is a big injury risk, but would not be a bad addition. I say that because he is good when healthy but if he gets hurt, we've got the depth.

Jennings is asking Dolphins to sign him so there is a great chance he ends up in south beach.

I'm not a raider fan at all but I like Shaunesey(sp?) Houston and Seymour up front. I like the flashes of excellence that Huff shows but he needs to be more consistent. Other than those guys I don't see much talent on the D. That is my honest opinion not disrespect. On offense I think Palmer can be THE GUY with a little more time from the o-line and better play calling from the coordinator. I LOVE McFadden when he's healthy. I like Moore a lot and I think Heyward- bay is staring material at WR. I think you guys could use another Tight end also.

You seem to have better sense than a lot of others on here...plus a more respectable opinion

RAIDERS 2013!!!
Haha I'm a 49ers fan.(Not one of the ones who just decided that there 9er fans lol). But since I'm here in vacaville I find myself going for the raiders since they are also close to me. A lot of people tend to pick a side either raiders or 9ers but I don't hate on the raiders even though I am a 9ers fan first. They are not a division opponent and they are - Northern California product so I don't have any ill will.

We honestly have one of the best teams going into 2013. Its only two things that need to be addressed on offense. Which is getting a decent lg nd and outstanding rt. were straight at tight end. Brandon myers catch everything over anyone nd juke for the first down despite speed. Nd wideouts. Moore(The truth wen 100%). Dhb(Growing balls). Ford(Still the man). Streater(got the jitters out). Hagan(nice hands).criner(future redzone threat). Palmer is still my favorite nd he shuld start. But if he finds himself in the redzone instead of a td. Thats wen tp6 come in. Who is 3/3 in redzone. Nd on d. Cut seymour put burris at mike. Stock up on dbs nd lbs nd dts nd lombardi is ours. Bkuz dmc in a power scheme is brilliant but fixing these errors as an addition. Genius.

Bowe would be a nice addition, but I don't think the Raiders can afford him.

I don't think using 2 qb's in a game will ever work consistently. I think Myers is free agent. I could be wrong on that

With the raiders roster still needing a fair amount of tweaking, I think they should work through the draft so they can have a good team for years to come and at a low price. I'm just not a big fan of overpaying free agents huge money unless they are elite. While bowe is really good, considering the depth at WR you guys have, I don't think he would be worth it.

Down the road building through the Draft is not a bad idea. Next year, DHB is going to count 7M against the cap as it stands today or unless he renegoitiates. The Raiders do not have a 2nd or 5th round pick this year. Bowe does make sense this year. I just think there will be more than one team that wants him and the Raiders will not be able to compete dollar-wise.
