With the 48th pick in the 2011 NFL draft, the Oakland Raiders selected Penn State G/C Stefan Wisniewski. This is a solid player who will immediately help the Raiders offensive line. (It almost makes me wonder if Al Davis made this pick.)
Steve Wisniewski, Stefan's uncle, played 13 years for the Raiders and is now an assistant offensive line coach for Oakland.
Wisniewski brings some versatility to the Raiders offensive line. He started at right guard last year at Penn State and at center in 2009. The year before that he was at guard. It's unclear where the Raiders plan to play him but, with the second best running attack in the NFL last year, it's a smart move to upgrade their offensive line.
