Strategy And Personnel

Whatever the new staff is planning in terms of defensive scheme is being kept under wraps, but it's worth noting defensive coordinator Jason Tarver and defensive line coach Terrell Williams both have experience in a 3-4 alignment.

Former coach Hue Jackson was hinting a move to a 3-4 before he was fired.

Linebacker Kamerion Wimbley, if retained on the roster, has played outside in a 3-4 in Cleveland and middle linebacker Rolando McClain excelled in a 3-4 at Alabama and has struggled with the Raiders.

Along the defensive line, the Raiders at the present time lack a true nose tackle, although Tommy Kelly and Matt Shaughnessy could both compete as 3-4 ends. Defensive left end Lamarr Houston, perhaps best suited for a three-technique tackle, may not be a good fit and could be trade bait for additional draft picks.
