5 Oakland Raiders Who Could Make Pro Bowl in 2014

The Oakland Raiders spent a lot of money in free agency this year. That being said, Oakland will be much more competitive in the tough AFC West. The Raiders will realistically not make the playoffs, but a season with around 6-7 wins is respectable to say the least. The Raiders could send a few players to Hawaii at the end of the season. Here are five players who could make the Pro Bowl after the 2014 season.

Call me crazy, but I honestly believe rookie Khalil Mack is NFL-ready enough to take the league by storm. Mack has been turning heads at practice and the Raiders have no plans for holding him back. Double-digit sack numbers aren't too far away for this future star. It's not just Mack's pass-rushing ability though. He is versatile and it wouldn't surprise me if he had a couple of interceptions too.

James Jones is coming from the Green Bay Packers, a team that is rich with offensive weapons. While the Raiders' starting quarterback situation is a little, it should be noted that Jones is an established receiver and he should have plenty of targets in Oakland, especially with the uncertainty of the position across from him in the offense.

Sebastian Janikowski is known around the league as one of the best kickers. Whether it is his consistency before the 40's or the shots beyond the 55's, Janikowski is a superstar kicker and he is also well-liked around the league. Janikowski is an unbelievable kicker and the Raiders will have plenty of opportunities to put points on the board because of him.

Charles Woodson is not the player he once was, but he is one of the league's most complete players. Not only is Woodson still playing well, but he is teaching and mentoring young players like D.J. Hayden and Keith McGill on how to be the best player they can be. Woodson is a ball-hawk and still creates turnovers.

Although it is one of the league's most underappreciated positions, the center position is extremely important. The center is responsible for calling out blitzes and scheme changes. Oakland's Stefen Wisniewski is one of the league's best at the position at reading defenses. Wisniewski is a quarterback's best friend and Matt Schaub or Derek Carr will learn that early this year.
