Oakland Raiders: Which Young Players Could Make the Biggest Impact?

FL Raider GirlAnalyst IJuly 19, 2008

Darren McFadden, Gibril Wilson, DeAngelo Hall, Kwame Harris, Javon Walker, Drew Carter...the list goes on and on.

Do you know how excited I am?

Of course, there is some apprehension, but a lot less this year than in previous seasons.

The biggest area of concern is still the defense. The biggest question mark is, "Can they stop the run?" If they can do that effectively, then they will get at least eight wins. One of those being San Diego.

If they can stop LT, then the Chargers will have to contend with Hall, Asomugha, Wilson, Huff, Howard, and Morrison. And that is six players that are going to get a lot of attention this season. Nobody wanted to throw to Asomugha last year, so now with the addition of Hall, it's gonna be a free-for-all.

Another person of serious interest this year (my favorite future pro-bowler), tight end Zach Miller. This guy is going to be great. Give him another year under his belt and he's going to explode. He's got good hands, very athletic, and he reads very natural.

Just watch him, and all the new blood, Raider Nation! I'm out!
