Gabe Jackson has a chance to start as a rookie for the Raiders


Paul Guieterrez of ESPN.com believes Gabe Jackson could start at guard at a rookie for the Raiders this coming season.

In my humble opinion, and after watching one practice in which the rookies wore helmets and shorts and after listening to the powers that be praise him, yes, I believe he has a legit chance to start at left guard. He is a road grader whose skill set seemingly fits the Raiders’ renewed power blocking scheme. It would not shock me at all to see him win the starting job at left guard.
