Jihad Ward working with Raiders' first-team during offseason
Oakland Raiders second-round defensive lineman Jihad Ward saw snaps with the first-team defense during the offseason program.
Head coach Jack Del Rio also said Ward was "a little quicker" than he anticipated. Ward probably will not beat out Mario Edwards Jr. or Denico Autry for a starting job at end, but he should be an important part of the defensive line rotation as a rookie.
Our algorithms project Edwards for 51.59 tackles and 4.04 sacks this year. The Raiders' defense ranked 22nd in Adjusted Defensive Net Expected Points per play in 2015.
