Raiders Have Three All-Pros on the Offensive Line
The Raiders already boasted one of the better lines in the National Football League, and now that Kelechi Osemele has been added to the fold, Oakland arguably has the second best line in football.
From left to right: Donald Penn, Osemele, Rodney Hudson, Gabe Jackson, Menelik Watson/Austin Howard. Particularly, the left four are ridiculous, and PFF really likes what Austin Howard did in 2015.
Three players out of this unit will be named All-Pros — Osemele, Hudson and Jackson. All three are proficient in pass protection and run blocking, and are amongst the best at their positions, if not the best. Working together under Mike Tice will make this group even more formidable.
With an interior offensive line like that, the team should be able to do basically whatever they want up the middle. The best part might be that none of those three are older than 27.
