The Las Vegas Raiders made a move to revamp their entire offensive line this past offseason, which meant they traded away guys like Rodney Hudson, Gabe Jackson, and Trent Brown. Hudson was replaced by Andre James, who was bad early on but has played well in recent weeks in his first season as a starter.
Overall, the offensive line has had issues all season long, and it is clear that they are going to have to make some moves upfront this upcoming offseason. With their second fifth-round pick, the Raiders add Jarrett Patterson in our mock draft, a player who has the versatility to play center, or even guard or tackle at the next level.
Patterson was the one player returning for Notre Dame this season from an offensive line that was a Joe Moore Award finalist last season. He was rumored to be moving out to left tackle, or even guard, but he has remained at center and is once again one of the best in the country.
For Las Vegas, he would prove much-needed depth at all offensive line spots.
