6 players the Raiders can’t afford to lose to injury in 2020
Rodney Hudson, Center
The Raiders will welcome back their entire offensive line from the 2019 NFL season, giving them cohesiveness and stability up front in front of Derek Carr. The anchor of the Raiders offensive line is Rodney Hudson, and while other pieces along the line are interchangeable, Hudson certainly is not.
Hudson is widely regarded as the best center in the AFC, and many believe he is the best in all of football. When it comes to protecting the quarterback, nobody does it better, as you could count on one hand how many times he has allowed a sack since putting on the Silver and Black.
Trent Brown and Kolton Miller are solid bookends at tackle, and the combination of Richie Incognito and Gabe Jackson could go up against any pair of guards in the conference. While you could find a quick replacement for all four of those guys in a pinch, Hudson is on another level, and losing him would be devastating to this offense.
