I really look forward to seeing this guy in a Raider uniform. I'll bet he starts somewhere on the OL.

sounds like he's having a little trouble adapting to the NFL DT's. I'm sure he'll he'll be great....maybe next year. I would love to see him make the O-line this year, though. The big DT's are just too much for him right now it sounds like.

He was at LG but, by his own admission, that doesn't seem to be be too great either (he's used to playing RG).......and I guess Raiders were trying Heyer at LG the other day.
Looks like it might be:

LT-Veldheer
LG-Heyer
C--Satele
RG-Carlisle
RT-Barnes

This seems OK with me...except for RT. Barnes really concerns me. Hopefully, B. Campbell can heal and get in the line up at RT soon.

jared gaither signs with the cheifs!
see how that turns out? RAIDERS didn't sign him because he didn't pass his phisycal (lower back) same reason the ravens released him!

i like the lineup. yea, i wish weisnewski was a starter. but they did say they were going to play the better player for the position regardless. weis is a rookie and he just has to adjust to the nfl thats all. k barnes is a concern to me too but he made it back for a reason AND starting! so? see what happens. thats what preseason is all about!

The real question is "Will he make the Cheifs roster now?"

I think Stefan is having trouble because he has to practice against 2 of the NFL's best DTs. I'll bet he cracks the lineup sooner than later this year.

Yeah, I hope he really shows he's got the stuff in preseason. I was hoping he would make it at LG but.....I must say I kinda like all the veteran experience in the middle of the line--IF this is the line up.

I was hoping he'd start at Center because I'm not a big fan of Satelle, but like Hue Jackson said "I want the best group of 5 to start and succeed."
