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.
