The pass from quarterback Matt Flynn arrived in a spiral, 30 yards downfield. Rod Streater, tightly guarded along the right sideline, caught the pass at the top of his jump, coming down inside the 5-yard line.

Moments earlier, Terrelle Pryor unleased a pass that went 60 yards in the air to second-year player Andre Holmes for a touchdown.

The Raiders came to pass Wednesday on Day 2 of their mandatory minicamp, showing much-needed improvement after a desultory showing through the air the previous day.

"We had a bad taste in our mouth after yesterday's practice and went over little things, timing, stuff like that," Streater said. "We still had couple of drops and missed alignments, but it was way better than yesterday."

One of the more intriguing storylines when the Raiders convene for training camp in Napa on July 25 will be to see which receivers emerge as consistent targets in the passing game.

For all the roster movement in the offseason, the Raiders made no move to sign a veteran wide receiver, holding pat with Denarius Moore, Streater, second-year player Juron Criner and hoping for a healthy Jacoby Ford.

Josh Cribbs can play wide receiver but was signed mostly for his skill as a return specialist. Brice Butler (San Diego State) was added in the seventh round of the draft, and undrafted free agents Conner Vernon (Duke) and Sam McGuffie (Rice) hope to follow a trail similar to the one blazed by Streater a year ago.

Given that leading receiver Brandon Myers signed with the New York Giants and the tight end position could be a committee arrangement, production from the wide receivers will be crucial.
