Al Davis: Top 10 Raiders That Must Commit to Excellence to Pay Tribute to Owner

Through the years, deceased Raiders owner Al Davis rolled the dice on a number of players. In the good ole days, Davis was never wrong because when Davis gave a player an opportunity they knew they couldn't get elsewhere, they worked extra hard not to let him down.

In today's society, things don't always work out that way, as we live in a materialistic, hustler's society. On top of that, the NFL is a huge business and one contract can set a man from humble beginnings up for life.

The result of that were guys like Jamarcus Russell and Javon Walker cashing in on Davis' vision instead of fulfilling it. In his passing, Davis has left behind some players that he rolled the dice on, so how they perform going forward will affect his legacy.

They all vary from first-round picks, to blockbuster trades, to reclamation projects, to late-round gems. If these players commit  themselves to excellence, they will carry Davis' legacy even further.
