Rod Streater built on a surprising rookie campaign by hauling in 60 catches for 888 yards and 4 scores in 2013. The undrafted wide out from Temple was hot and cold, posting 4 games with more than 80 yards receiving and 3 games with less than 20. Some of that can be attributed to uneven quarterback play, which the Raiders hope they have solved with the acquisition of Matt Schaub. Streater currently has the edge in the battle to start and has looked like the best receiver in camp at times. He's entering his third year which is often a breakout year for receivers.
2013 Game Summaries
Week 1 - Streater caught the game's two opening passes, a nine yard cross and an 18 yard pass thrown up by Pryor under duress. Streater made a really nice snag on a low pass from Pryor to start the team's second drive. It was a quick read and Pryor fired the ball and Streater's shins. Streater not only caught it, but he kept his feet and picked up a first down. Streater really seemed to know how to get into Pryor's line of sight when Pryor was scrambling around looking for anyone to throw the ball to.
Week 2 - Streater looks like Pryorís most reliable target in the passing game. Streaterís best catch was a leaping grab over the middle knowing he was going to take a big hit in the second quarter. Streater was mostly targeted underneath, but did have a 27 yard catch reversed by penalty. He is willing to expand his catch radius and take a hit and thatís something Terrelle Pryor has to have.
Week 3 - Streater looked much better when Pryor was out of the pocket and looking for help. His 28 yard gain came on exactly that type of play and Streater showed good YAC skills to gain yardage after the catch. Streater was targeted on one of Pryorís few deep throws in single coverage. Streater had no separation whatsoever on the deep ball and made a pretty poor effort to get to the ball.
Week 4 - Streater was expected to have an expanded role with Matt Flynn at quarterback but that did not come to fruition. He was all but locked up until a 14 yard grab in the 4th quarter against prevent defense. When Flynn looked short he looked to his running backs and when he looked at Streater he didn't see anyone open enough to get the ball to.
Week 5 - The highlight of Streater's day came on the first play of the game. He flew by his man down the right sideline and hauled in a well-placed throw from Pryor for a 44 yard touchdown. His most impressive catch came late in the second quarter. Pryor threw high and wide on a short hitch and Streater showed great ball skills, extending to snatch the ball out of the air.
Week 6 - Streater's catch in the first quarter came on a solid route against a safety. He beat the safety across the middle for a 15 yard reception. His 13 yard catch in the fourth quarter came on a slant against Cooper who was playing soft coverage. These were two of the very few times that Streater was able to get in the open against Chiefs coverage.
Week 8 - Three of Streater's four catches came on deep hitches, or comebacks, as Pryor scrambled out of the pocket. Of all the receivers, Streater continues to do the best job of coming back to his quarterback when he's in trouble. Streater's best catch was a 16 yard grab in the second quarter where he showed great footwork to stay in bounds in the red zone. Brice Butler- Butler should see his playing time significantly reduced. He saw two very catchable targets in the short passing game and dropped both of them. While both were egregious, the second proved much more costly as it ricocheted into the hands of a defensive back for an interception.
Week 9 - The play that made Streater's day was a 66 yard reception in the first quarter. Streater caught a short slant in stride and flashed incredible speed, outrunning the Eagles secondary first across the field and then down the sideline. Good downfield blocking extended the play. Streater's best route of the day came when he so badly fooled a defensive back on a deep hitch that the defender fell down. As good as that route was, his mishandling of a pass from Terrelle Pryor in the 3rd quarter was worse. The ball was about head high and Streater volleyed the ball up in the air like a setter where it was snatched out of the air by an Eagle.
Week 10 - Streater's first and only catch came late in the third quarter one an open short hitch. He was targeted sparingly throughout the game and was well covered when he was.
Week 11 - Streater was McGloin's favorite target and generally rewarded the rookie quarterback for his trust. His touchdown catch was just a perfectly thrown pass, though Streater did do a nice job of using his body as a shield on the 16 yard post. After a bad drop on a deep post, Streater showed great concentration to haul in a 36 yard bomb despite illegal contact and a hand in his face from the defender. Streater was also used in the short passing game, but his catches were generally more in rhythm and downfield that they have been with Pryor.
Week 12 - Streater was the clear WR1 in the Raiders' offense with Denarius Moore out. His best catch of the day by far was a leaping grab on a short cross to start the Raiders only touchdown drive. Streater timed his jump perfectly and showed good hands to haul in the hard pass. Later in the same drive he made another leaping grab on the left sideline, had his feet taken out from under him and held on as he crashed to the ground. It looked like the wind was knocked from him and he had to leave the game. Streater had a good connection with McGloin once the rookie quarterback settled in and looked comfortable with the entire route tree.
Week 13 - Streater got off to a hot start with two catches for 47 yards very early in the ball game, but largely disappeared after that. Both of his catches came on deep routes down the sideline with McGloin showing faith in his receiver to make a grab in coverage. He showed good body control to stay in bounds on the two plays, but didn't see much action afterwards. His only other catch came on a short route in the two minute drill at the end of the game.
Week 14 - Streater was the star of the day in the Raiders receiving corps, taking advantage of a favorable game script. He made several nice catches including a slant in all kinds of traffic that he took to the house for a 48 yard score. The Jets tried to jump the route and McGloin threw into an area with two Raiders and three Jets. Streater came away with the ball and had no one between him and the end zone as he outran the defense to the house. Streater's best catch was a diving grab on a deep cross for 16 yards to start the second half. He also made a nice leaping grab on a deep out where he was well covered and held on after taking a crushing blow on a short cross. Streater was tackled at the one in the fourth quarter and had another red zone target batted away at the last second or he could have had a huge day. He showed a grasp of the entire route tree and just about every skill you'd want from a receiver.
Week 15 - Streater made a tough grab in tight coverage and then broke away from a defender on his 26 yard reception. He later made another good grab on a cross thrown behind him, and then sprinted up the field for another good sized gain. He was limited by the Chiefs tight coverage and his quarterback's poor decision making.
Week 16 - Streater had a terribly disappointing day. It appeared as if he caught a 39 yard touchdown in the 4th quarter only to have the ball squirt out of his hands after he'd hit the ground and rolled in the end zone. He also had an 18 yard grab called back because of illegal motion. Like Holmes, Streater suffered in the first three quarters because of McGloin's lack of confidence.
Week 17 - Streater did a great job in the first quarter coming back to the ball to grab a short hitch in between two defenders early in the game and made a great leaping catch later in the game going over the middle. His touchdown was the team's first with a little over 4 minutes left. Streater did a good job on the touchdown of using his body as a shield in the back corner of the end zone and good concentration hauling in the pass under duress. Streater also had a bad drop in the game and didn't seem to have the same chemistry with Pryor as he's had with McGloin.
