Hue Jackson said flatly that Stefen Wisniewski is the center of the Raiders.
Sounds like Wisniewski won’t be playing guard. Also sounds like Samson Satele is a backup or headed elsehwere. With Satele entering some form of free agency, Jackson couldn’t discuss Satele’s status.
Jackson said he went of his way to avoid talking to Steve Wisniewski about Stefan to form his own judgement and made it point to say it was about Stefan, not about his uncle.
Wisniewski’s pick is similar to that of last year’s selection of Rolando McClain. The Raiders have placed a smart, tough player who a taste for film and football in the middle of their offense.
