Raiders standouts on Day 1 of joint practices with 49ers

Finding the best performances in these joint practices was not easy from the media vantage point. Getting a view of anything requires a good set of binoculars and sometimes even that’s not enough because there are players lined up in the way of all team sessions.

That being said, there were a few standout performers on the Raiders on their first day lining up against an opponent and I will try my best to give them all a mention.

Marcus Peters

Had his third interception of camp, picking off 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy. Earlier in practice, he was getting in the face of a 49ers receiver. He then backed it up. Just what the Raiders want from him.

Duke Shelley

Also had an interception, and it occurred right after the Peters jawing incident. So, clearly there’s an energy in this secondary and Shelley is feeding off of it.

Amik Robertson

Had a couple of pass breakups on the day, one of which came in the endzone to keep the 49ers from scoring to finish out a team session.

Chandler Jones

Worked over 49ers right tackle Colton McKivitz. Drove him up field and then put an inside spin move on him to get a straight shot at the quarterback.

Nesta Jade Silvera

Silvera showed great strength inside on the rush. And apparently I missed his best stuff while I was watching the other side, but he drew raves from several other members of the media independently. Worth watching the seventh round rookie.

Jimmy Garoppolo

No turnovers against his former team. And he connected with all his top receivers, spreading the ball around.

Austin Hooper

Garoppolo found Hooper in the back right corner of the end zone with defenders on each side of him for the touchdown.
