J. Veldheer
Rookie Jared Veldheer, a third-round pick out of tiny Hillsdale College, was drafted to play offensive tackle, (side note: everyone between the ages of 14 and 18 knows Hillsdale as that random college that mails them a brochure every six months). However, with Samson Satele on the mend (ankle), Veldheer, who was extremely raw early on, has an opportunity to “audition” for the starting center job.

Jerry McDonald of the Contra Costa Times writes:

Veldheer worked with the first team at center and will start against the 49ers, essentially auditioning for the starting job with Samson Satele out with an ankle injury.

Good news for Veldheer _ with 49ers nose guard Aubrayo Franklin deciding not to immediately sign his franchise tender, the opposition will be the less imposing Ricky Jean-Francois.

Many assumed Chris Morris was the Raiders’ No. 2 center. Apparently not.
