What condition Raiders position is in pre-free agency: Center

New, comments

We check on each Raiders position ahead of free agency to give it a condition of either Strong, Stable, Unstable, Serious, or Critical.

NFL: New England Patriots at Oakland Raiders Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

Starter: Rodney Hudson

Backups: Jon Feliciano, James Stone

Free agents: None

Hudson was once again a deserving Pro Bowl starter after last season. He is the best pass blocking center in the league and holds his own in the run game as well.

Feliciano was named among the backup guards as well, but he really earns his place on the roster by being the next man up at center. It’s much more complicated to play center. He was drafted as a guard, so he was good to go there.

Stone started 9 games for the Bucs as an undrafted rookie in 2014. He was added to the Raiders’ practice squad early last season and was called up to the active roster late in the season.

Condition: Strong

When you have Hudson as the starter, you’re good to go. He hasn’t missed a start the past two seasons. Feliciano is a capable backup and Stone is an insurance plan for the offseason and training camp.
