This week the Raiders are expected to shake up the right side of the offensive line. With Austin Howard ruled out this week, the Raiders have moved right guard J'Marcus Webb to right tackle and put rookie fourth round pick Jon Feliciano in at right guard as they prepare to face the Green Bay Packers in Oakland.

This will be Feliciano's first start of the season and just his fourth game active on game day.

For Webb, it is a move back to tackle where he was a full time starter for the Bears over his first three seasons in the NFL. He was signed by the Raiders this offseason and earned a starting job at guard for the first time in his career.

Feliciano was chosen in the fourth round out of Miami and throughout OTA's and training camp was the backup at right guard -- first behind Khalif Barnes and then behind Webb. He showed he had much development necessary before earning a job and was on the game day inactive list every week for the team's first ten games this season.

He becomes the sixth rookie on this team to get a start for the Raiders this season, with every pick through the fifth round starting at least one game.
