    Raiders Most Improved Defense Edition

    This is a poll and discussion on who you feel are going to be the most improved players in this second season under Gruden and Guenther. As this is a discussion on improved players from last year that means guys like Clelin Ferrell, Vontaze Burfict, and other players in their first season with the Raiders are not eligible.

    LOL - I went with the D-line. i expect Hurst and PJ to make the leap, Key to be stronger and technically sound, and Vanderdoes to come off of injury and be a force.

    Love PJ, but I think Hurst has the most talent to make the jump. I also think it could be any starter in the secondary. Worley, Conley, or Joseph. But I really want it to be Key, we might need it to be Key.


    My man Ike got a bad rap

    Iím going with Gareon Conley. I think he turns the corner this year and becomes a lock down DB.

    Would you say he is the Key?

    I'm going to go with Karl Joseph. I think he is on the upswing, his confidence is growing, and the presence of Abram will be a great motivator for him(not from a competition perspective) but from an eg. of a rookie Safety coming in and watching, learning, and balling at practice.

    I think they could be a great tandem.

    I took Hurst. There's a high ceiling for improvement with that Dline. They have to get better. The rest of the D is dependent on that pass rush. Considering how poor their play was last season, I will attribute that to the younger guys getting outsmarted by vet Olinemen. I anticipate/hope that it changes this season.

    I went with Key, I think Conley grew into a solid corner last year, He will only get better. But, Most improved will be Key. If he walks away with 5 sacks this year that is a big improvement. I believe Vanderdoes makes our line more versatile, He has a lot to prove though to make the team. But, I feel with the growth of Hall and Hurst, Key will get more opportunities especially with our improved LBs. I really could see this defense go from one of the worst to one of the best this year.

    I voted Key, but more out of hope than belief. We NEED him to step up, probably more than anyone.

    I really think PJ Hall will be a monster in year 2. He didn't get the stats last year, but he helped others by drawing double teams frequently.
