Gruden said Friday that newly signed tackle Trent Brown will be begin his 4-year record contract with the Raiders at right tackle. That left the question as to who will line up where at guard.Gabe Jackson has been the team’s starting right guard the past few seasons, but he started his NFL career at left guard. He moved to the right side when the team added Kelechi Osemele. This offseason they traded Osemele to the Jets, leaving some to wonder if Jackson could move back to left guard. Gruden says that won’t happen.“[Gabe Jackson] will stay on the right [side],” said Gruden.With the hole opening up at the left guard spot, it made sense for the team to use one of their draft picks at the position. They didn’t do that, leading to the top contender for the job to be Denzelle Good, who started in place the injured Jackson late last season and who the team re-signed to a one-year deal.Despite no other major additions at guard, Gruden is not ready to give the job to anyone.“[T]he door’s wide open at left guard and we’re going to continue to look at players that can come in and compete at that position,” Gruden continued.It’s interesting he not only said the spot is an open competition, but that they would even keep their eyes open for potentially adding someone else to the team. Current guards on the roster include Good, Bad Rashaan Melvin Jersey , Ugly, Denver Kirkland, Chaz Green, and Jordan Devey. They also reportedly signed several guards as undrafted free agents.Follow @LeviDamien Viva Las Vegas!The NFL draft is heading to Las Vegas for 2020, almost certainly before the Raiders do.The league announced Wednesday at an owners meeting that the city where the Raiders will begin play in September 2020 will host the draft that April.“The NFL Draft is one of the most-anticipated events of the year and we are excited to take it to Las Vegas,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement. “We look forward to working with the Raiders, Las Vegas officials and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority to create an unforgettable week-long celebration of football for our fans, the incoming prospects and partners.”The NFL began to bring the draft to different cities in 2015, when it was in Chicago. It was held there in 2016, too, then went to Philadelphia in 2017. Last April Marcus Gilchrist Jersey , the Cowboys hosted it in their stadium in Arlington, Texas, and next year it will be in Nashville.“The Raiders are very excited for Las Vegas and are proud to help host the 2020 NFL Draft,” Raiders owner Mark Davis said. “Las Vegas is the entertainment capital of the world and will provide a tremendous experience for the NFL and its fans.”The 2018 NFL Draft set a record as the highest-rated and most-watched Draft ever, eclipsing the previous record set in 2014.“We’re thrilled to be selected for this special event and cannot wait to show the NFL and the world a true Las Vegas experience for the draft,” said Steve Hill, president and CEO of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA). “The eyes of football fans from around the world will be on Las Vegas in 2020, and our resort partners on the Las Vegas Strip will ensure the draft is as entertaining as our destination.”April 23-25 will be the dates for the Las Vegas draft, which the league said will be held on and around the Strip.
