Who starts at right tackle?
The Oakland Raiders have some of the more elite players at their positions on the offensive line, and three of them went to the Pro Bowl last season. Center Rodney Hudson, offensive guard Kelechi Osemele, and offensive tackle Donald Penn were all named to the Pro Bowl in 2017, and all three return to the Silver and Black in 2018.
Outside of those three Pro Bowl players, the Raiders also have another guard who should be a Pro Bowler in 2018. Gabe Jackson is proving to be another solid pick from their coveted 2014 NFL Draft class, and teaming with Osemele, the Raiders could have the best guard tandem in the conference this season.
The big question along the offensive line coming into camp is who is going to be the starting right tackle. The Raiders spent two early 2018 draft picks on the tackle position, including in the first round, where they took UCLA’s Kolton Miller with the No. 15 overall pick in the draft.
Miller is going to have his work cut out for him this summer, though the team is hoping he is the starter in Week 1. Brandon Parker was drafted by the team in the third round back in April, and free agent Breno Giacomini was brought in to fight for the starting job as well.
This is a battle to keep an eye on all summer long.
