Just like the defensive line is a vital part of a contender, the offensive line is equally important. The Raiders offensive line improved as the year progressed but depth and talent there is always a priority. So with the 112th overall pick, the Raiders select offensive lineman Brandon Coleman out of TCU.
We have talked a lot about versatility and Coleman’s size and athleticism make him a great fit for the Raiders because of his ability to play multiple positions. Coleman measures in at 6-4 and 316lbs and is another member of the Bruce Feldman Freaks List because of his 35-inch vertical and the impressive feats of strength he displayed in college.
While at TCU, Coleman played right tackle and left guard part-time, but primarily played left tackle in his senior season. He projects long-term as a tackle and could be a potential replacement for Kolton Miller but for now, he could bring that elite athleticism and length to the interior and dominate.
This will also help assuage some of the concerns around him being able to block athletic rushers out in space and give him time to develop his own counter moves. Coleman would be a great addition to the Raiders offensive line.
