28. Oakland Raiders

2014 season record: 3-13

Top additions: WR Amari Cooper, WR Michael Crabtree, NT Dan Williams

Top departures: LB Lamarr Woodley, RB Darren McFadden, C Stefen Wisniewski

2015 projection: 6-10, 4th AFC West, miss playoffs

The Raiders might be one of those teams that wins some games you don’t expect them to this year.  I think they are the 2014 version of the St. Louis Rams.  They will be more competitive but still not enough to overtake anyone else in the division.  Not yet.

They also have the distraction of possibly moving to Los Angeles hanging over them, so that doesn’t help.  Watch out for quarterback Derek Carr and his new receivers rookie Amari Cooper and former San Francisco 49ers wideout Michael Crabtree.  This team will score some points in 2015.
