Raiders TE Clive Walford flashed his ability several times last year. If he takes off and becomes a consistent and effective weapon for Derek Carr, the Raiders’ offense adds a new dynamic.
Some of the momentum in that regard stalled though this offseason when Walford was involved in an ATV accident. He injured his knee enough that it required surgery, but the expectation has always been that he’ll be back for training camp.
The story went on to say Walford needs as much time during training camp with Carr as possible. Walford missed the bulk of training camp last year with a pair of injuries. That missed time together came after Carr was out for OTAs with an injury. The Raiders offense has a chance to be good this year and a weapon at TE can only make it better. Walford should be around late in drafts to take a chance on, esp. if your league gives you the option of playing multiple at the position.
