Fifteen players have worn jersey No. 71 in Raiders history, including a defensive lineman who really knew how to wreak havoc in the opposing team’s backfield.

For a total of 100 days, we'll take a look at the men who have played for the Raiders jersey number by jersey number. This series will highlight some of the greatest players in NFL history.

Some players are superstitious about their jersey number. Whatever the case may be, jersey numbers are an important part of the fabric of professional football.


Bill Pickel dropped opposing quarterbacks 53 times during his Raiders career.
