Raiders Countdown to Kickoff: 60: Who wore it best, who's wearing it now

New, comments

Just like that, we're at 60 days in our countdown to the Raiders 2015 season opener. The 60s belonged to offensive and defensive linemen. That certainly goes for the best to wear number 60 for the Raiders.

Who wore it best: DT Otis Sistrunk (1972-79)

The big defensive tackle went undrafted in 1972 as he didn't go to college. He went into the Marines out of high school and went on to play in the semi-pro Continental Football League. He fit right in with the Raiders of the 70s down to his bio in the program listing his college as ‘University of Mars' which was short for Marines.

He stands third all-time with 77 consecutive starts to begin his career. In his third year in the league, he was named All AFC. In 1976 he was moved to defensive end in the Raiders' 3-4 alignment and was instrumental in the Raiders winning their first Super Bowl that year. He spent seven seasons in the NFL, all with the Raiders.

Who's wearing it now: No one

Who wore it last: OG  Daniel Loper (2010)

The former fifth round pick spent one season with the Raiders after having spent the first four seasons of his career with the Titans and Lions. He appeared in 10 games with four starts.
