Five positions the Raiders still must address after free agency
The Silver and Black splurged on former Chiefs center Rodney Hudson this offseason. That's a solid move for Derek Carr's health, but the team should keep rebuilding on the interior of their line. It's a deep, deep year for guards in 2015. Someone like Missouri's Mitch Morse could be a great addition going forward.

The AFC West is a deathtrap for defensive backfields. With Peyton Manning, Philip Rivers and Alex Smith all benefiting from new deep threats next fall, Oakland has to revamp its depth chart at cornerback. The good news? There's good value to be had in the mid-to-late rounds, like Utah's versatile corner/safety Eric Rowe.

Believe it or not, Charles Woodson can't play forever. Oakland needs to start grooming his heir in its defensive backfield -- former Eagle Nate Allen probably isn't the answer. It's a down year for safety prospects, but a small-school guy like Samford's Jaquiski Tartt could slide in and learn from a Hall of Famer this fall.

The team didn't put up much of a fight to keep Jared Veldheer last offseason. But while Donald Penn proved to be a serviceable replacement, landing a true franchise left tackle would secure Oakland's promising offensive future. Reggie McKenzie should target someone like Texas A&M's Cedric Ogbuehi on the draft's second day.

Oakland put a bull's-eye on Randall Cobb this offseason, but he was unwilling to follow Reggie McKenzie to the Bay Area. The team also missed out on Jeremy Maclin (Chiefs), Percy Harvin (Bills), and Torrey Smith (49ers). There's a silver lining in these strikeouts, though. McKenzie can draft a player to grow alongside Derek Carr like the Packers did with Aaron Rodgers. West Virginia's Kevin White should work at No. 4.
