Tre Tucker, a rookie wide receiver, has generated a lot of interest because of his potential for the Las Vegas Raiders. To demonstrate how highly the Las Vegas front staff regarded Tucker, he was selected in the third round in what is anticipated to be a foundational draft class for Coach Josh McDaniels’ era.
While at Cincinnati, Tucker made 112 receptions for 1,433 yards, averaging roughly 13 yards per catch. In his final season with the Bearcats, Tucker’s kickoff return yards ranked among the top 10 in the FBS. Tucker’s speed is evident when watching him play.
Tucker Talking About His Physicality and Speed
Tucker ran a scorching 4.40 seconds in the 40-yard sprint at the NFL Combine. Tucker’s speed was instantly on full display for the Raiders against the Buffalo Bills on their opening drive after he was inactive for the first game of the season. On a jet sweep, Las Vegas handed the ball to Tucker, who sprinted down the field for a 34-yard gain and the Raiders’ first touchdown.
Although Tucker acknowledged that he completely respects the NFL’s emphasis on speed, he also said that the reason he appeared to be moving so quickly last Sunday was because of his mentality.
On Sunday night, the Oakland Raiders host the Pittsburgh Steelers in their first home contest of the year. On Sunday, Tucker says his main priority is to just carry out his duties as well as possible.
“Growing up, obviously I’ve always been fast,” “For me, I always tell people that no matter where I go, I want to be the fastest I want to be the fastest on the field. So, I kind of take that mindset with me.
“Yeah, it’s fast, but you just have to have the mindset that no one can run with you because mindset is everything.”
“Doing everything I can to help the team. no matter what it is or what I have to do. At the end of the day, a team win is more important than stats.”
With Tucker, Davante Adams , Meyers and Renfrow in the team as options, its as formidable as it gets for Las Vegas.
