The Raiders, heading into the offseason, had plenty of things to be optimistic about.

One thing that the Raiders have to be optimistic about is the amount of young talent on both sides of the ball. I know the Raiders still have holes to fill, but that's what the draft is about! 

Offense

JaMarcus Russell, Darren McFadden, Michael Bush, Oren' o Neal, Robert Gallery, Mario Henderson, Samson Satele, Zach Miller, Chaz Schillens and Johnny Lee Higgins.

Let's not forget veterans like Cooper Carlisle either.

With the draft coming, the infusion will only increase with a franchise left tackle and a No.1 wide-out. 

Defense

Chris Johnson, Nnamdi Asomougha, Tyvon Branch, Thomas Howard, Kirk Morrison, Derick Burgess, Trevor Scott, Jay Richardson, Tommy Kelly and Gerard Warren


The Raiders have a bright future, and with a few more pieces added, they will be the favorites to hold the Lombardi Trophy soon.

When you get into the playoffs, you have a shot of winning it all.  

The Patriots, Chargers and Colts aren't getting any younger!
