Raiders Kelechi Osemele at 95 on NFL Top 100 players of 2017

New, comments

The biggest free agent signing by the Raiders last offseason lived up to the hype last season. He made it to his first Pro Bowl along with being named first team All Pro. A season like he had earned him a place in the NFL Top 100.

Osemele lands at number 95 in the countdown as voted on by his peers. He should be the first of a few Raiders players to make the list.

See the NFL Network video here.

Osemele didn’t give a sack all season from the left guard position. In the run game, he mauled his opponents to open sizable holes for the Raiders trio of backs Latavius Murray, Jalen Richard, and DeAndre Washington to help them to the 6th best rushing attack in the league, averaging over 120 yards per game.

He was the anchor of arguably the best offensive line in football, and certainly the top interior along with Rodney Hudson and Gabe Jackson.
