The Raiders drafted Juron Criner in round five of the 2012 draft. He had 16 catches for 151 yards in 12 games as a rookie in the 2012 season.
He was inactive most of the 2013 season, seeing action in just one game against the Eagles where he caught three passes for 32 yards. He had been surpassed on the depth chart by rookie round seven pick, Brice Butler and then found himself behind Andre Holmes as well once Holmes returned from a 4-game suspension to begin the year. In the game against the Eagles in week nine he suffered an acromioclavicular joint sprain in his right shoulder. Shortly thereafter, on November 23, 2013, the Oakland Raiders placed him on injured reserve effectively ending his 2013 season. The Raiders waived Criner on August 26, 2014.
