Las Vegas Raiders: 3 rookies who could start 2024 Week 1

1. Tommy Eichenberg

Eichenberg doesn't really have much to beat out at the linebacker spot. In a three-linebacker set, he would be a favorite to enter the starting lineup alongside Divine Deablo and Robert Spillane. He's listed as a backup today, but that could change because he's a no nonsense type of linebacker who plays with that intensity that coach Antonio Pierce covets.

The fifth rounder edged out Michigan and Penn State linebackers to be named the Big Ten Liebacker of the Year. He is faster than he looks, but will have to improve at getting off blocks of bigger and stronger offensive lineman to slide in to the role.
