The 2016 Oakland Raiders were one of the great stories of the NFL regular season. After a long absence from the playoffs the Raiders qualified for the postseason with a record of 12-4. They were hit with unfortunate luck on Christmas Eve as quarterback Derek Carr suffered a season ending injury that cost the Raiders the AFC West title and Super Bowl hopes. Oakland qualified for an AFC Wildcard and were forced to go on the road with a backup quarterback and lost 27-14 as a 4 point underdog to the Houston Texans. Head coach Jack Del Rio is in his third year with Oakland and improvement will be needed on the defensive side of the football.

The Raiders offense carried the team last year. They were sixth overall in total offense as they gained 373 yards per game. Oakland scored 26 points per game which was seventh in the league. The other side of the football is the area of opportunity for Oakland. The team ranked 24th against the pass and 23rd against the run. Last season the Raiders had the fortune to win a lot of close games pulled out by the offense. Derek Carr is recovered from injury and had a great season completing 63.7% of his passes for 3927 yards with 28 touchdowns and six picks. Amari Cooper produced for Oakland with 1153 receiving yards. Khalil Mack was solid defensively with 11 quarterback sacks. The goal for the Raiders in the offseason was to build talent around Mack. Their first three picks in the draft came on the defensive side of the football. Oakland picked just one offensive player in their first six picks. One of the offensive signings in the offseason was running back Marshawn Lynch who is coming off retirement missing the entire 2016 season after suffering through injuries in 2014 and 2015.
