The Las Vegas Raiders have done a tremendous job building up their offensive line, and two of their interior linemen were ranked as one of the top-10.
Heading into the 2020 NFL season, the Las Vegas Raiders have a lot to like in terms of their offense. Derek Carr returns for his third season running Jon Gruden’s offense, and he not only has a ton of weapons at wide receiver, tight end, and running back, but he also has his entire offensive line returning.
That includes three guys in the interior who can be very disruptive, and two of them got some love in a recent rankings of the best interior offensive linemen in the league.
Ben Linsey recently put together his list of the top-25 interior offensive linemen in the NFL heading into the 2020 season. For the Raiders, they saw two of their three starters listed within the top-10, which is proof that this team should have one of the best offensive lines in the NFL this Fall.
Linsey named Quenton Nelson from the Indianapolis Colts as his top interior offensive lineman on the list, and it is hard to argue with that. Nelson has been a monster since joining the NFL from Notre Dame, and will be tasked with blocking for the cement-footed Philip Rivers in 2020.
We start out with the first Raiders named on the list.
