Oakland Raiders draft picks, undrafted free agents and eligible first-year players will participate in a three-day mini-camp Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the team's Alameda, Calif., facility. Head coach Dennis Allen and the coaching staff will lead these young players through on-field drills, meetings and film study.
This mini-camp will serve as a springboard into the rest of the Silver and Black's offseason program which will include several days of Organized Team Activities (OTAs) and a mandatory, full-team mini-camp in June. It will also give the coaching staff its first look at the 2013 Draft Class, which consists of 10 players, and the 14 undrafted free agents the Raiders added to the roster April 29.
The players will visit the equipment room to be fitted for their uniforms, helmets and pads Thursday.
Raiders.com will provide complete coverage of the 2013 Rookie Mini-Camp including video interviews and transcripts, comprehensive photo galleries, player Q&As and more. We'll also stream Coach Allen's Saturday media session live online.
