Raiders | Counting on Menelik Watson

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 22:33:28 -0700

Oakland Raiders OT Menelik Watson is slated to start at right tackle. The coaching staff has confidence in his ability after what was largely viewed as a disappointing 2013 season. Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson said, "You don't see men of his size with the kind of feet that he has. We've seen growth from him. We'll know more when we get into live situations, but we've got high expectations, and he has high expectations, as well." Watson said he has learned a lot about conditioning his body and understanding how to prepare from watching veterans, since he began playing football in 2011.

Raiders | Believe Menelik Watson can win O-line job

Sun, 16 Mar 2014 23:41:32 -0700

The Oakland Raiders would love to see OL Menelik Watson win a starting job and be healthy enough to keep it after their run-in with a failed physical by OL Rodger Saffold. However, if Auburn's Greg Robinson is still available when Oakland is on the clock with the fifth-overall pick in this year's draft, he would be very difficult to pass up.
