Las Vegas Raiders will be strong up front on both sides of the ball
After talk of the team moving on from Gabe Jackson, who was a part of the Raiders solid 2014 draft class, they did decide to bring him back for another season. The drafting of Clemson All-American John Simpson added fuel to the fire in April, but in the end, Jackson returning means Carr will have his complete set of starting offensive linemen back for 2020.
Richie Incognito played at a Pro Bowl level after returning from a year out of football, and was rewarded with a new two-year contract. The expectation is that Simpson will get to learn behind these two in 2020, but if one should go down, they have a quality guy to step in and start.
The offensive tackles are a tremendous combo as well, as Kolton Miller took a big step forward in Year 2 after a rough rookie season in 2018. Miller cut down on the sacks, and really held his own from the left tackle position, though that was also aided by the team bringing in Trent Brown.
After winning a Super Bowl as the left tackle in New England, Brown came in and was named a Pro Bowler as the Raiders right tackle, and is another guy who is in the prime of his career. When you add the fact that Rodney Hudson may be the best center in all of football, the Raiders are extremely talent up front on offense, and that is good news for Carr and all the new weapons the team brought in this offseason.
