Per Raiders.com, here are tonight’s offensive and defensive depth charts:


QB: Derek Carr, Mike Glennon, DeShone Kizer

RB: Josh Jacobs, Jalen Richard, DeAndre Washington

FB: Alec Ingold

WR1: Tyrell Williams, Hunter Renfrow, Ryan Grant

WR2: J.J. Nelson, Dwayne Harris

TE: Darren Waller, Foster Moreau, Derek Carrier

LT: Kolton Miller, Brandon Parker

LG: Jordan Devey, Jonathan Cooper

C: Rodney Hudson, Andre James

RG: Denzelle Good

RT: Trent Brown, David Sharpe

Quick Analysis: The loss of Antonio Brown will sting, as this might be the weakest WR core in the NFL. However, all eyes will be on rookie running back Josh Jacobs and rookie slot receiver Hunter Renfrow, both of whom are expected to be thrust into major roles. Derek Carr will likely target Renfrow and Tyrell Williams the most and tight end Darren Waller also turned heads in the preseason. However, Vic Fangio's defense should create some major issues for the Raiders, given their lack of overall playmakers.


LDE: Clelin Ferrell, Josh Mauro

LDT: Maurice Hurst

RDT: Jonathan Hankins, P.J. Hall

RDE: Arden Key, Benson Mayowa, Maxx Crosby

WLB: Nicolas Morrow, Kyle Wilber

MLB: Vontaze Burfict

SLB: Tahir Whitehead, Marquel Lee

LCB: Gareon Conley, Keisean Nixon

RCB: Daryl Worley, Trayvon Mullen

SS: Karl Joseph, Erik Harris, Dallin Levitt

FS: Jonathan Abram, Lamarcus Joyner, Curtis Riley

Quick Analysis: Rookie Clelin Ferrell headlines the defensive line while the team also added Vontaze Burfict and some help in the secondary this offseason. Despite those improvements, the Broncos will look to pound the ball and control the time of possession in this game, which could result in Oakland's defense becoming gassed. The unappealing Raiders offense should have a number of quick series, which will most likely create a major disadvantage for Oakland's defense from an attrition standpoint.
