Giving a detailed, in-depth analysis of the Las Vegas Raiders offensive line, to form the most likely (two-deep) depth chart.
In what was a magical off-season, the Las Vegas Raiders were able to answer most of the question marks surrounding the offense. Grabbing a wideout to replace Henry Ruggs? Securing your franchise quarterback on a new deal? Shooting down all trade rumors surrounding your Pro Bowl tight end? Check, check, and check.
Not every part of the offense is sunshine and rainbows, though.
While the Silver and Black made strides at each and every skill position on the offense, the offensive line remains as mysterious as ever. It isn’t only a mystery due to the blatant lack of moves surrounding such a disappointing unit one season ago, but due to the vast versatility in the unit as a whole.
The Raiders have a long laundry list of viable offensive lines to roll out for the ’22 season, compromised of a magnitude of players who have experience playing more than one position on the line. This leads us to two important questions – How do we figure out which line makes the most sense, and which players are best suited for immediate backups to the starters? The answer to both: By breaking down the entire unit.
What we’ll be doing here is following up on the two-deep depth chart for offensive skill players (click here to dive into that offensive skill positions depth chart), and breaking down who’s the most likely to fill which position, whether starter or backup and explaining why. There’s a lot to get into, so buckle up.
