Optimism is running high for the 2019 Oakland Raiders as Jon Gruden might have completed the heavy lifting associated with rebuilding a franchise. His first order of business in the offseason was to acquire disgruntled Antonio Brown from the Pittsburgh Steelers. Next came, two free-agent signings (Trent Brown and Tyrell Williams) that should help solidify the offensive lineup. Throw-in first-round selection Josh Jacobs, and finally, Derek Carr has some semblance of a productive unit in front of him.
Defensively, the Raiders haven't found an adequate replacement for Khalil Mack as the unit could never generate a consistent pass rush all season long. Gruden believes he has rectified the situation with the drafting of Clelin Farrell from Clemson and the free-agent signings of Brandon Marshall and Vontaze Burfict. Each has been productive in their collegiate and professional careers, but can they be effective collectively as one group that remains to be seen. The Raiders hope Farrell, Marshall, and Burfict can match Mack's production or they will continue to struggle.
Another area of concern for Gruden is his defensive secondary. He going with rookies as Jonathan Abram and Trayvon Mullen are expected to be apart of the starting lineup. You can expect opposing offenses to challenge them early as the question of them covering opposing receivers will be answered quickly.

For the record, I never actually played football. I have no doubt that I would get crushed running across the middle for a pass, every single time.
