Coach Medeck on Expectations of Raider Offense in 2017: 

"We have key returners at the QB/WR positions which will help manage the passing game. There are new faces on the offensive line and the running backs will be needed to emerge early to produce a strong running game."

Coach Medeck on Expectations of Raider Defense in 2017

"Depth and experience in the front seven should help. Due to significant graduation in the secondary, there will be plenty of early playing opportunities for a strong group of young candidates." 

Coach Medeck on Expectations of Raider Special Teams in 2017: 

"We are returning and All-Region kicker which should help stabilize some of the special teams. Will need to identify returners that can help make a difference early on."
