After averaging just over four wins a season from 2003-2010, the Oakland Raiders have notched back-to-back 8-8 seasons in the last two years. While eight wins was met with excitement in 2010, expectations are on the rise as the black hole expects another trip to the playoffs to be in the near future.

While many teams have the fortune of consistency, however, the Raiders have become foreign to the idea.

Aside from unveiling their third head coach in three seasons this year, the roster has also been largely overhauled. In the 1990s and into the early 2000s, the Raiders had the fortune of developing star players who remained in silver and black for extended periods of time such as Tim Brown, Rich Gannon and Charles Woodson.

This 2012 team, however, has yet to forge their own identity. While many names have become familiar in recent years such as Rolando McClain, Michael Huff and Richard Seymour, none have blossomed into the face of the franchise as star players in years past.

Is 2012 the season that someone emerges to lead the charge? Is this the year the Raiders return to prominence and thrust themselves back into the spotlight?

We delve into their latest roster moves and offer you a position-by-position breakdown to get you geared up for this season.
