Throughout this offseason, the Raiders will be in search of a receiver who can become their go-to target on offense. In a deep draft for the position, they just may be able to come away with one in the second round.
Fresno State’s Davante Adams is one such player who should be on the board, and thus should be of significant interest to the Silver and Black.
Adams is neither the biggest nor the fastest receiver in the draft, but his ability to consistently make plays on the football, and especially so in contested situations, is what makes him a top-end possession receiver.
As he gains strength at the next level, adding to his 6’1”, 210-pound frame, his game should evolve even more, further increasing his ability to win over opposing defensive backs.
Playing in an offense with a likely first-round quarterback in Derek Carr, Adams put up extremely impressive numbers, totaling over 3,000 yards in just two seasons.
Adding Adams as a No. 1 target to an already-talented Raiders receiving corps could potentially make for a productive unit that a young quarterback can lean on as he and the rest of the offense develop moving forward.
