The 2020 draft class for the Raiders will go down as one of the worst in franchise history and it could possibly get even worse.
Henry Ruggs III and Damon Arnette were released before their second season in the NFL. Tanner Muse and Lynn Bowden Jr. have never played a snap.
The only player left from that draft is cornerback Amik Robertson, who enters the fourth and final year of his contract with the Raiders. Amik Robertson was selected in the fourth round at pick No. 139 in 2020, but he is now the subject of rumors of not making the final roster.
Vic Tafur and Tashan Reed from The Athletic gave their Raiders 53-man roster projection and Robertson was one of the players cut:
“Robertson and Webb will both have the chance to fight for a roster spot. The 5-foot-8 Robertson was one of the new Raiders brass’ favorite players that they inherited, but his size limitations are tricky and ultimately prove his undoing.”
Tashan Reed and Vic Tafur mentioned in their roster predictions that the team is likely to add another veteran cornerback in the coming weeks.
“This list doesn’t include Marcus Peters, or whatever veteran the Raiders ultimately bring in for training camp,” Reed and Tafur wrote.
The Raiders drafted seven players in 2020, but Robertson is the only one who remains on the roster for now.
The cornerback position has been bad for the Raiders as they haven’t had a cornerback make the Pro Bowl since Nnamdi Asomugha in 2010. It’s a position that they have had a difficult time addressing in the draft.
Robertson has appeared in 35 games for the Raiders and has started a total of nine games over the last two seasons.
It remains to see if these rumors prove to be true.
