It isn't a revelation that the Raiders found very few wide receivers they could trust last season. The two top receivers by the end of the season were Denarius Moore and Rod Streater and both were among the league leaders in drops on catchable balls. Two seasons ago, it was Darrius Heyward-Bey who looked like he might break out and become the top receiver the Raiders hoped he would be when they spent the number seven overall pick on him. He came back down to earth last season. When Greg Olson arrived, his manta was to tailor the Raiders offense around the weapons he has. That list of high powered weapons does not include a number one receiver who should be fed the ball. He will tell you what he does see, though. "I do see, though, obviously a young group of wide receivers that are talented and yet they're still developing," said Olson to reporters Wednesday. "As a group, as an overall group of players, I do see a good skill set in that group overall. And they're all kind of different when you look at them. There's not one that really jumps out or sticks out... they are still developing."
