Determining the Top 10 Las Vegas Raiders players of all time is subjective and can vary based on personal opinions and criteria for greatness. The Las Vegas Raiders (formerly known as the Oakland Raiders and Los Angeles Raiders) have a rich history with many legendary players who have left a significant impact on the franchise. I wanted to break down a list of players who are often regarded as some of the greatest players in the franchise’s history.

  1. Al Davis: While not a player, Al Davis was the iconic owner and executive of the Raiders. He played a crucial role in shaping the team’s identity and success.
  2. Jim Otto, C (1960-1974): Otto is a Hall of Fame center who was known for his durability and leadership on the offensive line.
  3. Gene Upshaw, G (1967-1981): Upshaw, another Hall of Famer, was a dominant offensive lineman who played a crucial role in the Raiders’ success during the 1970s.
  4. Art Shell, OT (1968-1982): Shell was a cornerstone of the Raiders’ offensive line and a key part of the team’s Super Bowl victories.
  5. Fred Biletnikoff, WR (1965-1978): Biletnikoff was a legendary wide receiver known for his precise route-running and sure hands. He was named the MVP of Super Bowl XI.
  6. Ken Stabler, QB (1970-1979): Stabler, also known as “The Snake,” was a charismatic and talented quarterback who led the Raiders to victory in Super Bowl XI.
  7. Marcus Allen, RB (1982-1992): Allen is one of the most famous Raiders of all time. He was a dynamic running back who won the Super Bowl XVIII MVP award.
  8. Howie Long, DE (1981-1993): Long was a fearsome defensive end and a key part of the Raiders’ defense during their successful years.
  9. Tim Brown, WR (1988-2003): Brown was a prolific wide receiver and return specialist, setting numerous franchise records and earning a place in the Hall of Fame.
  10. Charles Woodson, CB/S (1998-2005, 2013-2015): Woodson was a versatile defensive back who had two stints with the Raiders. He won the NFL Defensive Player of the Year award and was a key leader on the field.

While Al Davis was the owner, he was a legend. I feel he had the biggest impact on the franchise. Do you agree?
