Earlier in the offseason Jared Veldheer was the subject of a photo that showed his freakishly increased muscle gain. Some questioned if he was getting too big and would be able to block quick defensive linemen or linebackers. However, Veldheer doesn’t think his gain in size will restrict his ability to be a quality offensive lineman. Furthermore, he feels the entire experience has increased his stamina, and since the Raiders are going back to a power blocking scheme, it seems like it’s a good fit for him. “I feel a huge energy boost,” Veldheer said, via Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times. “That’s gotten me ready quicker for the next workout. I’m just feeling good and I’ve been hitting some of the best weights that I’ve hit here, pretty much in my life. … I’m excited to get to use it all on the field.” “That can happen if you’re not working on the right stuff, for sure, but I’ve been working on a lot of good stuff, a lot of mobility work and proper technique within the lifting,” Veldheer said. “I feel like I’m more mobile than I’ve been. I’m able to move lower. I feel like I’m at my quickest, too.” “It (reflects) the work that I’ve put in,” Veldheer said. “It’s nice when people can respect that. At the end of the day, it’s not about the picture. It’s about trying to get better and getting stronger, faster and working on the drills I need to get better on the football field.”
