RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Rivera emerged from a pool of tight-end candidates last year to lead the position in receiving as a rookie. A 2013 sixth-round draft pick, Rivera is a skilled receiver with excellent hands who uses his athleticism to get separation. He's undersized (6-3, 245) and has average speed (4.81 40), but the Raiders' dysfunction at quarterback held him back more than anything last year. Raiders quarterbacks ranked 25th in attempts, 27th in completion percentage and 30th in interception percentage. That contributed to Rivera breaking 50 yards just once and being held to no more than 10 yards four times. Matt Schaub steps in this season, and having an experienced pocket passer should bring stability to the offense. The Raiders also added wide receiver James Jones, which should help open the field for Rivera, who is expected to be a bigger part of the passing game. David Ausberry, who suffered a season-ending injury in training camp last year, could challenge for targets, and 6-6 Nick Kasa, who was drafted last year as a project, could steal red-zone work if he is ready.

2013

At 6-3, 237 pounds, Rivera isn't the ideal size of a tight end in the NFL, but he may have the best hands at the position for Oakland. Rivera hauled in 36 catches for 562 yards (15.6 YPC) and five touchdowns last season at the University of Tennessee, though pass catching is just one of the many skills Rivera will need to show coaches before seeing the field. He will also need to beat out Richard Gordon, David Ausberry and fellow rookie Nick Kasa for playing time.
