Apparently the Raiders are signing their rookies from the top and bottom and working toward the middle. The most recent is the big’n, locking in 15 overall pick offensive tackle Kolton Miller to his rookie deal.
Miller signs a 4-year contact with a 5th year option the team can choose whether to exercise after year three.
The deal is expected to be worth $13.47 million over four years and carry a cap hit of $2.45 million in 2018 according to figures on Overthecap.com.
Miller, a Roseville California native, played three seasons at UCLA after redshirting as a true freshman, appearing in 31 games with 23 starts at both left and right tackle over his career. He started 13 games at left tackle last season and was named to the All-Pac-12 Conference Second Team by the league’s coaches.
After getting all of their round 5-7 picks signed earlier this week, the team now has six of their nine draft picks under contract, including Miller and second round pick PJ Hall. Those who still remain to be signed are round 3 picks OT Brandon Parker and DE Arden Key, and round 4 pick Nick Nelson.
