Raiders rookies impress on Day 2 of minicamp

Wednesday's mandatory minicamp practice was another collective showing from the defense, with the unit looking aligned from the defensive line all the way to the secondary. Notably, a few of the Silver and Black's newcomers are also starting to come along as the offseason continues.

Here are some of the top moments from Day 2.

  • Before diving into the totality of practice, several players in the 2024 draft class flashed. Brock Bowers has impressed since rookie minicamp and continued to use his route running abilities to get open throughout Wednesday's practice. "That's the business man," Davante Adams said of the first-round pick. "He doesn't care about anything else but locking in on football and I can see it in his eyes."
  • Dylan Laube, a sixth-round pick from New Hampshire, is using his versatility to the fullest. Along with racking up yards after catch from the backfield, he's received quite a few reps in kickoff return. "I think he has a bright future," said Cadillac Williams, running backs coach. "He's wise beyond his years. He shows up like a vet. ... He can take what he learns from the classroom and apply it on the field. He's always going to be in the right spots. Got really good hands, quick, explosive. Just a very cerebral player that can do a lot of things."
  • To round out the good showings from the rookies, DJ Glaze showcased his skills in pass protection against the likes of Maxx Crosby and Tyree Wilson and in the secondary, seventh-rounder M.J. Devonshire caught an interception. Linebacker Tommy Eichenberg also had a pass deflection during red zone drills.
  • For a second straight day, quarterback Anthony Brown Jr. was finding his targets. He connected on a deep touchdown pass to Kristian Wilkerson in team period as well as some impressive throws to DJ Turner. Both Brown and Gardner Minshew II used their legs to rush for first-down gains on different occasions.
  • Following Christian Wilkins' dominant showing in Tuesday's practice, Maxx Crosby upped the bar on Day 2. The Pro Bowler was all over the field from start to finish, getting in the backfield for what would've been two sacks in team period. "Maxx is the real deal and I see why he's done the things he's done in this league," Wilkins said after practice. "I've known Maxx for a long time, since college, but seeing it up close and personal each and every day it's like, 'Damn, this guy doesn't stop.'"
  • The practice ended with second-year cornerback Jakorian Bennett securing an interception, making it his second straight day with a pick.
