Suddenly, they have a loaded roster that can compete with the NFL’s best.
However, it would be better for the Raiders to have more options in the run game to put some variety on their attack.
That said, the team will welcome the positive news shared by Vegas Nation reporter Vincent Bonsignore.
Good news for @Raiders: Both Denzelle Good and Kenyan Drake cleared to start camp.

Having both players ready for camp puts more bite on their ground attack.
Good suffered a season-ending torn ACL in Week 1 of last year.
However, his recovery is going along well and he will be ready for the Raiders’ training camp.
The team hopes that he can be that imposing force that can provide paths for Drake and Josh Jacobs to burst through.
Meanwhile, Drake broke his right ankle in Week 13 of the 2021 season against the then-Washington Football Team.
It’s a sigh of relief for the Raiders that Drake is ready because Jacobs remains sidelined by an injury.
Raiders Starting Their Camp Early
Aside from getting Good and Drake back, the Raiders had their rookies and veterans report to training camp by July 20.
They have a lot of work to do, especially with a new head coach in Josh McDaniels, as well as new coordinators in Mick Lombardi on offense and Patrick Graham on defense.
The early start of their training camp will also give Good and Drake more time to return to game shape.
