Overall, head coach Tom Cable has a lot of good young talent to work with, but a lot of hard decisions to make before the final 53 man roster is set.
We all know how well the Raiders did in the draft, but they continued the great selections into the undrafted rookie portion of the 2010 offseason.
I really like the Manase Tonga and Alex Parsons choices—look for them both to make the final 53 man roster.
I'm not as excited about Alex Daniels and Brashton Satele, but they each have a real good chance at the practice squad.
I'm not as optimistic about the future of Trent Guy. He is just too small and will be competing with Jacoby Ford to be the returner. Plus, the team already has 10 wide receivers on the roster. However, his return skills will likely get him on the practice squad at the very least.
In all, this offseason's rookie camp and training camp will be interesting with a lot of competition at every position. Competition makes all players at a given position work that much harder and perform that much better. That is a good thing for the team as a whole.
