One of the biggest stories going into the 2021 Las Vegas Raiders’ season will be all the major change on the offensive line.

If you go by Pro Football Focus’ rankings, the Raiders may not be improved there. PFF has former Raiders’ center Rodney Hudson ranked as the No. 1 center in the NFL but the Raiders traded him to the Arizona Cardinals in March.

Harrison’s Las Vegas replacement, Andre James, is ranked No. 32. So basically PFF is saying that the Raiders went from the best center situation to the worst this offseason.

They do have former Raiders’ guard Gabe Jackson, who was traded to the Seattle Seahawks this offseason, as the No. 16 best guard and have Raiders’ guard Richie Incognito ranked at No. 18.

Raiders’ left tackle Kolton Miller is ranked as the No. 23 tackle in the NFL.

Of course, these rankings mean very little — but there is no doubt that this will be an interesting season on the offensive line in Las Vegas.
