Why he’ll break it: Smith has to be considered the longshot in this group, not because of his talent but because of his off-field issues. He could be slapped with another suspension as a result of his August drunken-driving arrest (his third since 2011). If – and it’s a big if – Smith can play a full season for the Raiders, he certainly is capable of another double-digit sack season, especially playing opposite Khalil Mack.

Quotable: “I’m just excited to be here, have this chance with this team, being part of a bunch of guys who work hard and an organizati­on who looks out for their players, and just a fresh start,” Smith told reporters after his Oakland debut last week.
