With the 15th pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, the Oakland Raiders have selected Kolton Miller, Offensive Tackle, UCLA Bruins.

Considering that Kolton Miller is the second Bruin selected in the first round of this year’s draft, it really makes you wonder how last year’s team only won six games.

Well, that won’t matter moving forward for Miller as his job moving forward will be providing pass protection for Derek Carr and blocking for Marshawn Lynch and Doug Martin. Miller becomes the first pick of the second John Gruden era with the Raiders.

It will be interesting to see how soon Miller will crack the Raiders’ starting lineup because the Raiders’ offensive line was one of their deepest units last season.

Congratulations, Kolton!

Go Bruins!
