Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr is shocked by how large his new guard is. At 6 foot 5 and 330 lbs, Kelechi Osemele gives the Raiders a massive presence to go along with their two big linemen, Gabe Jackson and Rodney Hudson. Protecting Carr will be a huge priority for 2016 and that is one of the main reason they went out and snagged the humongous guard.
“The first time I saw that guy, I couldn’t believe how big he was, not just how big he was because all offensive linemen are big, but the guy is jacked. You could tell that he’s not just a big guy. He’s cut, he’s lean. It’s just like, ‘you weigh what? And you look like that?’ It’s unreal. The Guy is a freak of nature.”- Derek Carr
Raiders GM McKenzie has worked diligently and has possibly put together what could be known as one of the NFL’s top offensive lines.
