Marshall Newhouse to start at right tackle for Oakland
- Oakland Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said that Marshall Newhouse is the current starter at right tackle.
- Newhouse played 524 snaps for the Giants last season at both guard and tackle and is coming off his highest-graded season in the NFL at 69.4, 46th among OTs.
- Based on his 2016 performance, Newhouse shouldn’t be a major liability in pass protection at right tackle. His pass-blocking grade of 75.1 ranked 37th among eligible tackles and his pass-blocking efficiency of 96.5 ranked 13th (min. 90 snaps in pass protection).
- Newhouse struggled as a run-blocker in 2016, earning a “poor” run-block grade of 50.0, which ranked 60th out of 79 tackles.
