MENELIK WATSON RUMORS

Five Raiders who could surprise everyone in 2015

The Oakland Raiders are still a big question mark. They have an entirely new coaching staff which means new schemes and strategies. They have a big group of new players as well, some of whom we know a lot about and some of whom are still a pretty big mystery themselves. And then there are the players who have been around the Raiders but who are young or coming off of bad years and...

Time for the Raiders to sit all of their vets, and play all their younger guys

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking the past few weeks and I’ve come to the conclusion that the Raiders won’t make the playoffs. So why the hell aren’t we blooding our young talent? Heading into Cleveland last Sunday with an 0-6 record, veteran Khalif Barnes shared snaps at right tackle with 2013 second-round pick Menelik Watson. Watson – a raw product who needs all the...

Donald Penn sees great potential in Menelik Watson

The Oakland Raiders drastically upgraded their roster over the off season while placing much of their focus on improving play in the trenches on both sides of the ball. When the 2014 season starts, the Raiders very well could have up to four new starters along the offensive line including two new starting tackles, one who is just beginning his career and one who is on the backside...

Oakland Raiders position battle: right tackle

The Oakland Raiders lost both starting offensive tackles from 2013. LT Jared Veldeer was signed by the Arizona Cardinals and RT Tony Pashos is still unsigned. Oakland Raiders offseason position review: offensive line Pashos started 12 games and was very serviceable. He was a good pass blocker, but relied more on technique rather than ability. He was a decent run blocker but...

Oakland Raiders giving up on Menelik Watson already?

The Oakland Raiders have long had one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL, a problem they have been trying to fix ever since drafting Robert Gallery way back in the 2004 NFL draft. Since taking over responsibilities for drafting as the Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie has taken two offensive tackles in two consecutive drafts and neither one appears destined to anchor an...
