Pro Football Focus released a list of rising and falling players for all 30 NFL teams during training camp.

The two Las Vegas Raiders on the list may or may not shock you.

Nate Hobbs, the rising player

PFF’s selection for a rising player was second-year cornerback Nate Hobbs.

This is what PFF had to say about his performance: “Hobbs has been competitive against Davante Adams during Raiders camp, which is just about the best compliment you can give a cornerback.”

In a story recently published in the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Hobbs expressed that he isn’t playing well by accident, it’s because of the love he has for the game.

“Until I die. Real talk, until I die,” Hobbs said about the edge he plays with to . “Where I’m from, I’m from Louisville, Kentucky, so I never got the chance to see anybody make it that far to the NFL with my own two eyes or personally know somebody. It feels like that in all areas of Louisville. We are a real underrated city. So growing up there it made me like that. I guess I was a creature of my habitat.”

The 2021 season saw Hobbs play in 16 games and claim a total of 69 tackles, one sack and one interception.

in 2022, he aims to build on those numbers.

The falling player 

For the falling player, PFF selected defensive end, Clelin Ferrell.

This is what they had to say about his performance: “The Raiders declined Ferrell’s fifth-year option before the season, and now he hasn’t practiced since July 27. Not a great start to Ferrell’s fourth NFL season under new leadership in Las Vegas.”

In a prove-it year, Ferrel simply hasn’t practiced. It’s no surprise that he finds himself as a faller, according to PFF.

If things continue as they are, he may not be a Raider for too much longer.
