ESPN Raiders reporter Bill Williamson said rookie Clive Walford has a chance to beat out Mychal Rivera for the starting tight end job.
Williamson wrote that Walford "appears to be more dynamic than Rivera" and "looks like he can make an immediate impact." Rookie tight ends almost never make an immediate offensive impact, so take this praise with a large grain of salt. Still, Walford's presence should prevent Rivera from matching the 99 targets he saw last season. Neither player is an enticing redraft option.
