The Las Vegas Raiders have a solid starting offensive line, but the depth behind them is starting to build, including 2020 draft pick John Simpson.
The Las Vegas Raiders enter the 2020 NFL season loaded up front along the offensive line, as quarterback Derek Carr will have his entire starting unit from 2019 returning. Trent Brown, the team’s right tackle, is coming off a Pro Bowl season, and he is joined on the other side by left tackle Kolton Miller.
Rodney Hudson will once again be the man in the middle, and he has played at an All-Pro level since putting on the Silver and Black. Next to him will once again be the veteran tandem of Richie Incognito and Gabe Jackson, two guys who can be downright dominant at times, and will be key to this team making the next step forward.
Behind this starting five are some solid veterans, as well as a rookie who could end up supplanting Incognito or Jackson sooner than later. General manager Mike Mayock has made it a point to get better at every position, and he did just that by selecting Clemson guard John Simpson in the fourth round this past April.
With that said, let us take a look at the college career, the draft position, and season outlook for the rookie guard.
