Though rookie offensive lineman Jon Feliciano still needs time to develop, the former Miami Hurricane can’t do much worse than what Webb has done through eight games. Feliciano had experience at center, guard, and tackle during his time at the University of Miami (Fla).

Webb will likely play the rest of the way for better or for worse, but the hope for Raiders fans is that offensive line coach Mike Tice can groom Feliciano into Webb’s replacement as well as an upgrade down the road. Webb is the best option for now, but the best answer to solving the problem going forward is to develop Feliciano into the starter.
