As the team prepares to head off to Training Camp 2016, the Oakland Raiders are currently at the maximum number of 90 players on their roster.
Suspended linebacker Aldon Smith does not count towards the team's 90-man limit.
Let's take a look at how the 2016 Raiders' roster was constructed.
NFL Draft (27)
|Linebacker||Neiron Ball||2015||Linebacker||Cory James||2016|
|Guard||Vadal Alexander||2016||Kicker||Sebastian Janikowski||2000|
|Defensive end||Shilique Calhoun||2016||Running back||Taiwan Jones||2011|
|Quaterback||Derek Carr||2014||Safety||Karl Joseph||2016|
|Cornerback||TJ Carrie||2014||Defensive end||Khalil Mack||2014|
|Quarterback||Connor Cook||2016||Cornerback||Dexter McDonald||2015|
|Wide receiver||Amari Cooper||2015||Defensive tackle||Stacy McGee||2013|
|Defensive end||Mario Edwards Jr.||2015||Running back||Latavius Murray||2013|
|Defensive tackle||Justin Ellis||2014||Tight end||Derek Carr||2013|
|Offensive lineman||Jon Feliciano||2015||Tight end||Clive Walford||2015|
|Cornerback||DJ Hayden||2013||Defensive end||Jihad Ward||2016|
|Linebacker||Ben Heeney||2015||Running back||DeAndré Washington||2016|
|Guard||Gabe Jackson||2014||Tackle||Menelik Watson||2013|
The Silver and Black currently have 27 players on the roster that they've drafted. Kicker Sebastian Janikowski – drafted No. 17 overall in the 2000 NFL Draft – is the veteran of the group, with guard Vadal Alexander serving as the most-recent selection by General Manager Reggie McKenzie.
The Draft has been a goldmine for the Raiders as of late, and not just in the first few rounds, as McKenzie and the Raiders' front office have found quality players in the latter stages of the three-day event as well.
Free Agency (27)
|Safety||Nate Allen||2016||Safety||Reggie Nelson||2016|
|Long snapper||Jon Condo||2006||Fullback||Jamize Olawale||2012|
|Wide receiver||Derek Carr||2015||Offensive lineman||Kelechi Osemele||2016|
|Long snapper||Andrew East||2016||Tackle||Donald Penn||2014|
|Free safety||Chris Hackett||2015||Tight end||Lee Smith||2015|
|Running back||Roy Helu, Jr.||2015||Linebacker||Malcolm Smith||2015|
|Tackle||Austin Howard||2014||Cornerback||Sean Smith||2016|
|Center||Rodney Hudson||2015||Kicker||Giorgio Tavecchio||2015|
|Outside linebacker||Bruce Irvin||2016||Cornerback||Neiko Thorpe||2014|
|Linebacker||John Lotulelei||2015||Linebacker||Korey Toomer||2015|
|Offensive lineman||Matt McCants||2013||Safety||Brynden Trawick||2016|
|Defensive back||Dewey McDonald||2015||Tight end||Colton Underwood||2015|
|Defensive end||Damontre Moore||2016||Defensive tackle||Dan Williams||2015|
Around the league, if you ask someone how to build a team, many national pundits say the same thing – build through the Draft and supplement through free agency – and that's precisely what the Raiders have done.
Reggie McKenzie has built the core of the Silver and Black (Derek Carr, Amari Cooper, Khalil Mack, Latavius Murray etc.) through the Draft and then supplemented the rest of the roster through free agency.
In particular, the free agent haul he was able to assemble this past offseason – headlined by Kelechi Osemele, Sean Smith and Bruce Irvin – has drawn rave reviews around the NFL.
Claimed Via Waivers (2)
|Wide receiver||Andre Holmes||2013|
Amerson and Holmes are the only players the team currently has that were claimed via waivers, but both have been solid pickups for the Silver and Black.
After being claimed September 22, Amerson was statistically one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL in 2015, and since his arrival in 2013, Holmes has been a valuable piece on both offense and special teams for the Raiders.
Undrafted Free Agents (34)
|Defensive lineman||Denico Autry||2014||Defensive lineman||Branden Jackson||2016|
|Linebacker||Daren Bates||2016||Punter||Marquette King||2012|
|Guard||Mitch Bell||2015||Guard||Denver Kirkland||2016|
|Running back||George Atkinson III||2016||Defensive tackle||Darius Latham||2016|
|Wide receiver||K.J. Brent||2016||Wide receiver||Max McCaffrey||2016|
|Center||Ross Burbank||2016||Quarterback||Matt McGloin||2013|
|Linebacker/defensive end||James Cowser||2016||Wide receiver||Jaydon Mickens||2016|
|Cornerback||Kenneth Durden||2016||Tight end||Ryan O'Malley||2016|
|Defensive back||Chris Edwards||2016||Guard||Oni Omoile||2016|
|Defensive back||SaQwan Edwards||2016||Defensive tackle||Leon Orr||2015|
|Linebacker||Jimmy Hall||2015||Running back||Jalen Richard||2016|
|Cornerback||Antonio Hamilton||2016||Wide receiver||Seth Roberts||2014|
|Wide receiver||Joe Hansley||2016||Defensive end||Greg Townsend||2016|
|Tight end||Gabe Holmes||2015||Guard||Terran Vaughn||2016|
|Wide receiver||Johnny Holton||2016||Offensive lineman||Torian White||2016|
|Defensive lineman||Drew Iddings||2016||Linebacker||Kyrie Wilson||2016|
|Wide Receiver||Marvin Hall||2016||Wide Receiver||Nathan Palmer||2016|
As of now, the Raiders currently have 34 undrafted free agents on the 90-man roster.
While many of these players won't make the final 53-man roster, there are always one or two individuals who stand out and find a home either on the active roster or the Practice Squad.
Last year wide receiver Seth Roberts and defensive tackle Leon Orr – both of whom were undrafted free agents – saw time on the active roster, and Roberts was actually the No. 3 receiver throughout the season.
