The Raiders have moved Gabe Jackson to right guard.
Jackson played left guard exclusively at Mississippi State and in his first two NFL seasons. He's transitioning to accommodate Kelechi Osemele, whose best position is left guard. "We feel he’s got the power you really covet for a right guard," coach Jack Del Rio said of Jackson. Both Osemele and Jackson were top-15 guards among 82 qualifiers in Pro Football Focus' 2015 grades. Jun 1 - 8:58 PM

Raiders OL coach Mike Tice called second-year LG Gabe Jackson a "rising star."

Jackson more than held his own as a third-round rookie last year, showing very well in pass protection while starting 12 games. Adding some power to fit his 6'3/336 frame should help Jackson take the next step. Buoyed by Jackson and the free agent addition of center Rodney Hudson, the Raiders at least have a couple pieces to build around on the offensive line.

Third-round OG Gabe Jackson is the Raiders' starting left guard.

Jackson was competing with veteran Khalif Barnes for the job for most of camp, and ended up getting the nod after Barnes supplanted Menelik Watson at right tackle. Jackson is a strong power blocker at 6'3/336. The Raiders' line reads LT Donald Penn, LG Jackson, C Stefen Wisniewski, RG Austin Howard, RT Barnes.

Raiders signed No. 81 overall pick OG Gabe Jackson to a four-year contract.

He's competing with Khalif Barnes to start at left guard. A limited athlete, Jackson ran 5.51 at the Combine with a 29-inch vertical, but benched 225 pounds 30 times, and has good arm length (33 3/4") for pass protection. Although Jackson is a pro-ready technician and looks the part of a mauler, he didn't play with consistent power in college. He has upside, but could struggle early.

ESPN Raiders blogger Paul Gutierrez expects third-round pick Gabe Jackson to be the Week 1 starter at left guard.

A four-year starter at Mississippi State, Jackson is pro-ready and should provide an immediate upgrade in pass protection. At 6'3/336, he has potential to be a mauler in the run game. Assuming Jackson can pick up the Raiders' protection schemes, Oakland's starting offensive line should be LT Donald Penn, LG Jackson, C Stefen Wisniewski, RG Austin Howard, and RT Menelik Watson.

Raiders selected Mississippi State G Gabe Jackson with the No. 81 overall pick in the 2014 draft.

Jackson (6-foot-3 1/4, 336) made 52 starts for the Rebels, all at left guard, and earned first-team All-SEC honors in 2013. He wasn't charged with a single sack allowed as a junior or senior. A limited athlete, Jackson ran 5.51 at the Combine with a 29-inch vertical, but repped 225 pounds 30 times and has good arm length (33 3/4") for pass protection. Although Jackson is a pro-ready technician and looks the part of a mauler, he didn't play with consistent power in college. He still projects as an early-career starter with upside.
