Why Raiders fans should be excited about Kolton Miller

Jon Gruden on Raiders Conley Melifonwu'They're real close

The Oakland Raiders were initially expected to select at No. 10 overall on Thursday night, but they traded the pick away to the Arizona Cardinals prior to making the selection. Oakland released last year's starting right tackle, Marshall Newhouse, earlier this offseason. Instead, they added more protection for Derek Carr. Left tackle Donald Penn, meanwhile, is about to turn 35 and returning from foot surgery, and his contract expires after 2019. Miller (6'9/309) made 26 starts in three seasons with the Bruins, moving from right tackle to Josh Rosen's blind side a 2017 redshirt junior and earning second-team All-Pac 12 from the conference's coaches. Now holding the No. 10 pick, Arizona selected quarterback Josh Rosen, who had almost fallen out of the first round.

Rather than take any of them, the Raiders elected to go with UCLA offensive tackle Kolton Miller - a shocking pick to say the least.

Oakland traded their Round 1 (10) to Arizona in exchange for Round 1 (15), Round 3 (79) and Round 4 (152).

Gruden gets himself a really nice piece on his offensive line with this selection.

The Raiders were said to be interested in Notre Dame tackle Mike McGlinchey.
