We talked about the struggles of Andre James earlier, but things are looking even worse at times for Brandon Parker at right tackle. He has also been graded as the worst right tackle in his few weeks as a starter.
Alex Leatherwood was drafted to play right tackle but has moved inside to guard due to injuries, and ultimately, I believe that is where he will play best going forward. This means that they need to find someone to play tackle for the future.
The Raiders found great success in drafting Kolton Miller out of UCLA, and they’ve proven they aren’t afraid to go back to the well twice. Now that may change with whoever the next coach ends up being, but Sean Rhyan is a worthy selection.
Much like Miller, Rhyan appears to be a high-level athlete able to move well in space. And even has natural power that may surpass what Miller had coming into the league.
Now by the time the actual draft rolls around, Rhyan may be a top 50 lock, but at the moment, he was available, so we’ll take it.
