The Raiders are a team always in search of more talent, a point proved with last week’s waiver claim on ex-Cleveland receiver Greg Little.

Odds are he won’t be a present or future No. 1 receiver in the Brandon Marshall, Andre Johnson or even Sammy Watkins mold, but he will add competition to a muddled depth chart heading into the meat of the team's offseason program.

The Raiders have receiving talent without a clear-cut No. 1 -- they wanted to draft such a prospect, but he never fell appropriately to them -- but there’s more worthy talent than spots on the 53-man roster.

The receiver group should be particularly competitive in training camp when hierarchy’s are generally formed. Veteran free-agent acquisition James Jones is a virtual lock for a starting spot. Beyond that, there’s sorting to be done.

“We have a lot of great guys in that room with a lot of talent and I’m excited to be a part of it,” new Jones said in late April. “I don’t know if it’s No. 1, No. 2 or No. 3, but I’m excited to be a part of it, excited to help those guys and go out and make plays on the field.”
