Rolando McClain is pretty much the only lock to start. Tom Howard was the only one who started every game last year that is returning and his job is on the bubble. It's a lock that either Trevor Scott or Kamerion Wimbley will start but Howard will be pushing to get a starting job from one of these guys. I could see Wimbley potentially failing because he's only had 1 good year...I still don't know what they were thinking when they traded for Quentin Groves.

I think Groves was a guy the Raiders were looking to draft out of college. I like the pick-up. The Raiders were thin at LB last year and the younger guys on the Practice Squad are small LBs. I look for Groves to challenge for an OLB position. If the Raiders decide to tuse T. Scott at OLB, Groves will most likely be seen on the field as a passing-down DE much like Burgess (or Scott a couple of seasons ago) to replace bigger DEs used on running downs.

He might work out better for us...all I know is that he was a screw up in Jacksonville. Now that I think about it...Burgess was a screw up in Philadelphia and worked out nicely for us...I just think they did him wrong by not giving him a new contract as he was promised just because the guy that promised it to him wasn't there anymore.
