Raiders: Wire targets Las Vegas should kick the tires on
OL Michal Menet
Continuing with the theme of versatility, the Green Bay Packers cut Michal Menet. The former Penn State Nittany Lion can play either guard or back-up center. He was originally a seventh-round draft choice by the Arizona Cardinals last year but didn’t see any action.
Much like the aforementioned linemen, Menet can play multiple positions and, considering what the Raiders are doing, would be a nice addition to Bricillo’s unit. Coming out of college, Menet displayed nice footwork for someone his size: six-foot-four, 300-plus pounds. Possessing noteworthy mobility, speed, and movement, Menet also had excellent hands coming into the NFL. Excelling in run-blocking, Menet could be a nice developmental player considering his physical attributes.
Back in 2020, prior to being drafted, Menet started nine games at center. Menet seems to be the typical McDaniels player, like the linemen he had in New England. He is a true locker room leader and has been the team captain for more than a year. He has sufficient power, length, and movement to go along with his versatility to maybe becoming an asset for the Raiders. Effective linemen don’t grow on trees, if Menet is available, he’s worth a look.
