When the Oakland Raiders signed undrafted rookie free agent Rod Streater last season, it did not turn many heads. The Temple product played in a run heavy offense at in college, so his pass catching opportunities were limited. However, since his rookie mini-camp, Streater has continued to emerge in the Oakland passing game.
This season, Streater has been a huge factor for the Raiders. Despite the parade of quarterbacks, Streater has remained a viable option. He has at least one reception in every game this year. He has recorded 50 catches for 787 yards and three touchdowns. Last week against the New York Jets, he had his best game as a professional with seven catches for 130 yards and a 48 yard score.
Streater's growth has been remarkable. In his last four games, the second year wide receiver has 364 yards and two touchdowns. He leads the Raiders in receptions, targets, first down catches, 20 plus yard receptions and receiving yards. He runs routes as well as anyone on the team and uses his size and leaping ability to position himself for against defenders.
With so many question marks about the Raiders future roster, Streater is one player who has used 2013 to make a statement. He has increased his value and will be a guy the Raiders can rely on in the future at wide receiver.
