With 70 days until the opening game of 2020, we start the count down with the best Raiders player at every jersey number. Today we focus on No. 70.
With the season a few months away, we take a look at the best player to wear the jersey number of the number of days left before the opener on September 13, 2020 against the Carolina Panthers. That game will kick off the new era of Raiders football.
We continue our series with No. 70.
There have been a handful of solid Raiders to wear the No. 70 through the years, including Jim Harvey, who spent his entire career in the Silver and Black over a six-year period. A full-time starter at right guard, Harvey played along one of the dominant AFL lines of all-time, the Raiders 1967 AFL Championship Team.
Staying with guys who played their whole career with the franchise, defensive tackle Scott Davis had a nice five-year run with the team. During the 1990 campaign, Davis notched ten sacks, and had 27.5 sacks in a four-year span.
Finally, Kelechi Osemele may not have played his whole career with the team, but he certainly had his best seasons as a pro with the team. After coming over to the Raiders in 2016, Osemele was named to two straight Pro Bowls, and was a First Team All-Pro in his first season in the Silver and Black.
When it comes to the best player in team history to wear No. 70, however, that has to go a man who won three Super Bowls with the team, serving as a dominant offensive tackle.
