Jackson: Wisniewski is the center

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.

    Also, where’s RaiderRockstar? He made fun of me for saying 6 QBs would be gone by #48.

    He tends to hide/ignore comments when he is proven wrong. Just sayin…

  • raidertay

    They will probably move Satele to OG.

  • bcz24

    Im hoping against hope Washington takes Mallett here!

  • lefty12

    Thanks,J Hill.Severe,if you don’t like the pick-fine,no sweat off my balls.But don’t throw ridiculous statements about the guy.He was All-American as a JR at the Center position.He was moved to G as a SR.Don’t know why.You don’t know that he isn’t/won’t be a better C than Satele who wasn’t liked that much by the coaches obviously.It is also possible Satele could be moved to G.At no time was Satele the Raiders best O-Lineman last or any other year.

  • bcz24

    Ok Dolphins

  • David

    Looks like Mallett will be gone.

  • bcz24

    Satele is also a free agent and a Cable guy who we are OBVIOUSLY moving away from…

  • priesttj

    The Jets took a 315lb DT in rd 1 to replace Jenkins, lol.

    I wonder if he is a “true run stuffer”?

    FYI, Jets #3 in Run Defense. Hardly an analogy.

  • David

    Coach is laying back. He’s thinking free agency now.

  • YoungAmerican

    Wiz is a safer pick than Ijalana or Little, and there will be OT options later in the draft. I’m not going to complain about it.

    It will indeed be interesting to see how Kaepernick develops.

  • priesttj

    Yeah they’re protecting themselves just in case they lose Satele. Also it aint a bad pick Wiz will be a good players. I just didn’t want to take him that high.

    How? Cuz of Kaepernick?

  • priesttj

    Guys Mallett was heavy into drugs you just can’t take chances like that anymore………if he’s around late in the draft sure but teams juts don’t want to deal with crap like that when your spending large dollars.

  • J Hill

    EFF the 9rs!

    The only reason they got Kapernicky is because we didn’t want him. If Al REALLY wanted him, he would’ve traded up to the 1st pick in the draft.

    As fast as the Wiz pick got in there, and the CLEAR dislike Al/Hue had for Satele, seems to me Wiz was the pick all along.

  • YoungAmerican

    I’d love to see Tyson Clabo come aboard in free agency.

    We’ll see, though.

    Make sure you communicate that to the “we need a true run stuffer” crowd.

    All character issues aside, Mallett is a statue in the pocket and by the time he finished running his 40 yard dash Jamarcus Russell had eaten 11 more cheeseburgers and bought a new necklace…

    Some of you people are unbelievable.
    There is NO WAY IN HELL that Wiz is a bad pick.
    You CAN NOT assume that he will be there later and our OL is a case for 911.

    //////////////////////////////////////////////////

    Satele has never played G and there is no indication that he will be able to do it now. He was our most consistent OL the second half of the season and the best by far the last 4 games. He is being replaced primarily because he is more compatible for the ZBS though he could certainly function in the stystem that we run as he displayed last year/ Most “experts” acknowledge how well he played down the stretch and Jerry has said it several times himself.

    Nothing i said about Wiz II was ridiculous. He is not particularly strong at the POA, not quite nimble and has average balance. He has short arms and was pushed around by some of the bigger DL he faced. That being said, he knows how to play the game, has good technique, understands angles, has a non stop motor and is very aggressive. Not a great athelete but gets by with above average football IQ, a great motor and will….classic overachiever
