OT - LV
Week 3 Outlook
Las Vegas Raiders LT Kolton Miller has agreed to a three-year extension with the team worth $18 million a year. The deal includes $42.6 million guaranteed and goes through 2025, per Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.
The former No. 15 overall pick of the 2018 NFL draft receives an extension, which includes the final year of his rookie deal and a fifth-year team option. The 25-year-old has improved each season in the league and this extension could end up looking like a bargain in a few years if he continues to get better.
Raiders' starting LT Kolton Miller did not practice on Friday with an ankle injury.
Miller hasn't practiced all week, which doesn't bode well for his chances of suiting up this Sunday vs. the Chargers. Miller has been an iron man so far in his career with the Raiders. He started 97% of offensive snaps as a rookie in 2018, and 100% of snaps 2019-present. QB Derek Carr can thank his lucky stars that Chargers star DE Joey Bosa is doubtful with a concussion.
With the 15th pick in the NFL Draft, the Oakland Raiders selected UCLA offensive tackle Kolton Miller.
This is one of the biggest shocks of the draft so far, as most didn't see Miller going inside the top-20 picks, let alone in front of Connor Williams. The Raiders have a hole at right tackle, but Miller was always projected to play left tackle in the NFL. This could be a move of the future as Donald Penn isn't getting any younger. Whatever the case, Miller feels like a reach at this point in the draft. Maybe the Raiders should've moved back with the Bills, who just moved up in the draft right behind them.
