Who Will be the Starters for the Raiders?

Before the NFL kicks-off for real in September with regular season games, we have now seen two weeks of preseason action for the Oakland Raiders.  There was a wave of mock depth charts that came out predicting who the starters would be for the silver and black.  For the most part, things are going as expected, with the exception of injuries, but there have been some notable changes...

Donald Penn easing fears about the OT position as the OL struggles

The Oakland Raiders spent considerable time and money upgrading their offensive line during the offseason. Bringing in three new starters and a new key reserve, the hope was that they could take a group that has been a weak link for a decade and finally make it a strength. Unfortunately, the offensive line has not looked very good in the preseason and was especially bad against the...

Oakland Raiders projected starting offense

  In the third year of a full-scale rebuild, the Oakland Raiders finally got the cap space and decent amount of draft picks to seriously move forward. There are only ten players on the roster that were part of the team in 2011, with only four of them (Khalif Barnes, Denarius Moore, Stefen Wisniewski, and Marcel Reece) expected to be starters in 2014. Their starting offense has been...

Reviewing Raiders revamped offensive line

The Oakland Raiders played with maybe the most rag-tag group of offensive lineman ever in 2013. Needless to say major upgrades were needed. With the largest cap space in the NFL Reggie McKenzie had money to spend and has done well after two big hits early. The Raiders have refused to hand out any large deals this off-season and Jared Veldheer, although very reliable was a casualty...

Oakland Raiders free agent preview: Needs and desires

With NFL Free Agency beginning tomorrow, here is one last look at the Oakland Raiders before the madness begins. The Raiders are coming off of back to back 4-12 seasons under new general manager Reggie McKenzie and head coach Dennis Allen. A big part of the reason behind the two bad years is that McKenzie tore things down in order to fix a terrible cap situation. Now that the Raiders...

Raiders have good options at guard in deep draft

The Oakland Raiders will need to do a lot of work on their offensive line. Probably their worst unit on offense or defense last season, the Raiders offensive line was comprised of street free agents and undrafted free agents. Injuries plagued the unit and prevented and hope of having a successful season. In order to avoid another disaster like the 2013 season, the Raiders will need...

Re-visiting the Raiders offensive line post Khalif Barnes signing

The Oakland Raiders resigned the veteran offensive tackle/guard Khalif Barnes last week as they begin to rebuild last years shaky front line. The Raiders have many more questions at offensive line as they move forward but bringing back Barnes is a step in the right direction. Barnes is entering his sixth season as a Raider and by all accounts is a great leader in the locker room...

Raiders vs. Chiefs: Keys to the Game

When the Raiders visited Arrowhead earlier in the 2013 season, a promising start quickly took an awful turn. Oakland’s defense held up their end of the bargain, but the offensive line could not protect then-starting quarterback Terrelle Pryor. Pryor was rendered completely ineffective all game, and eventually the Chiefs proved to be too much for the Raiders to handle.So what to...

The Oakland Raiders have made it this far with a patchwork offensive line that's done its best to protect both Terrelle Pryor and Matt McGloin this season. The return of Jared Veldheer will help. The underrated left tackle was activated off short-term injured reserve Wednesday after partially tearing his triceps in August, the team announced. In a corresponding move, the Raiders...
