Las Vegas Raiders: 53-man roster projection post-2022 NFL Draft
Offensive Line (9): Kolton Miller, Jermaine Eluemunor, Andre James, Denzelle Good, Brandon Parker, Alex Leatherwood, Dylan Parham, John Simpson, Alex Bars
One of the bigger surprises of the offseason so far has been the lack of changes the Raiders have made upfront along the offensive line. As it stands, they could be going into next year with the same starting lineup as 2021, with Kolton Miller, John Simpson, Andre James, Denzelle Good, and Alex Leatherwood all coming back.
Las Vegas did retain Brandon Parker for depth, and spent two draft picks in 2022 on the offensive line, but have they really done enough? I could see Dylan Parham starting for this team as a rookie, and based on recent videos, Leatherwood looks to be in much better shape, so maybe he gets another crack at right tackle.
With so many new weapons brought in on the offensive side of the ball, Las Vegas cannot afford for the offensive line to be an issue once again. They have to get better play from guys like Leatherwood and Simpson, hope Good can stay healthy, and Miller to remain a top left tackle in football for any of this to work.
Total Roster Number: 24
