Not surprisingly there is another position on the offensive line that is not yet set, as this group of players is the major question mark on the Oakland roster.
Samson Satele was acquired from the Dolphins in a trade, and Head Coach Tom Cable was very optimistic that he could be a success in the zone blocking system.
So far he has been a disappointment, as he has struggled against better defensive tackles in both the pass and the run game.
Rookie Jared Veldheer was drafted originally to play left tackle, but having played some center in his career he has been tried out at the Raiders main problem position on the offensive line. He has shown well with the second team, and was given the nod over veeteran Chris Morris for the 49ers game and played well.
He is very tall for a center in the NFL at 6' 8", but if you can play then you can play.
Even though he comes from a small school, he has handled the pro's well, and certainly brings a physicality that Satele lacks. As a medical student, he has the intelligence required to absorb the play book and call blocking assignments for the line.
The smart money is on Veldheer to unseat Satele or the starting job.
