Summary

Crabtree signed a modest one-year deal to move across the bay from San Francisco and looks like his strong training camp performance will easily be enough to win the job as the Raiders' #2 WR across from Amari Cooper. Crabtree was drafted 10th overall in 2009 by the 49ers and improved each of his first four seasons, culminating in a strong 85 catch, 1,105 yard and 9 touchdown season in 2012. He seemed on the verge of becoming a star, but injured his achilles the following offseason. The injury was considered potentially career threatening but Crabtree was able to return late in the 2013 season and play a handful of games. The injury seems to have sapped Crabtree of some explosiveness and he struggled through a mediocre 2014 campaign in which he had a hard time getting on the same page with QB Colin Kaepernick and openly questioned his role in the offense. Crabtree's reputation as a poor presence in the locker room and lack of big plays since his injury dampened the market for his services this offseason. But he remains a strong route runner and is able to create separation with his quickness and strong technique and is a strong fit for the Raiders' needs at the position. While Crabtree's deep speed may be questionable, he should be a strong option as a veteran possession receiver for QB David Carr and has WR3 upside if Carr can take a step forward in his second season.
