The Oakland Raiders have been on the outside looking in at the NFL Playoffs dance for 12 seasons running, but the pieces are in place for a major Raider Nation come-up in 2015. Here's what we've learned in training camp so far that we can take over to the regular season:
Latavius Murray Getting All Of The First-Team Reps At Running Back
The Oakland Raiders' running back competition doesn't look like much of a competition right now, with incumbent halfback Latavius Murray getting all of the Raiders' first-team reps in training camp over Trent Richardson and Roy Helu Jr.
Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie is a huge fan of Murray's, telling reporters recently that Murray "can do it all" in a seeming vote of confidence.
The 25-year-old Central Florida burst onto the national scene with 112 yards and two touchdowns in a Thursday night win over the Kansas City Chiefs last season -- the Raiders' first win of 2014.
Derek Carr is ready to lead this team
Carr’s rookie season is on the very shortlist for all-time best campaigns for a first-year quarterback, and he's taken a noticably increased leadership role so far through camp. With a rebuilt backfield and a revitalized receiving corps that now features Amari Cooper, it’s blue skies ahead for the most talented Raiders quarterback since Rich Gannon.Back to the Oakland Raiders Newsfeed
