The Oakland Raiders have signed first-round draft pick Kolton Miller to a rookie contract.
The deal announced Friday gives the Raiders six of their nine draft picks under contract.
The Raiders traded down five spots to select Miller 15th overall last month to be their left tackle of the future.
Miller played three seasons at UCLA http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/zach-brown-jersey , appearing in 31 games with 23 starts at both left and right tackle over his career. He is being groomed on the left side in Oakland, where he is expected to eventually take over the job from starter Donald Penn.
The Raiders have three unsigned draft picks remaining in third-rounders Brandon Parker and Arden Key, and fourth-rounder Nick Nelson.
On Saturday, Johnny Manziel decided to join the CFL. On Sunday Tavon Austin Jersey , he attended his first CFL practice.
But he didn’t do much practicing.
Via the Associated Press, Manziel was primarily an observer on Sunday, his first day of work with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
“That’s because he doesn’t know the terminology, he doesn’t know anything http://www.chicagobearsteamonline.com/johnthan-banks-jersey ,” Tiger-Cats coach June Jones said, via the AP. “[Quarterbacks coach] Dan [Morrison] was walking through each route as it was called. But [on Monday] guess what? We’re going to walk in and start taking a couple.”
Manziel realizes it will be an adjustment, especially as it relates to the options available to each receiver.
“Spacing is a little bit different on the defensive side if I had to look at anything,” Manziel said. “On offense Youth Justin Tucker Jersey , I’ve never ran this many routes that are predicated off of one defender . . . every route has an opportunity to break three or four different ways, which is different. . . .聽But I think it gives you the versatility and offensive weapons to be able to attack coverages more intensely than it would just running a fixed route. I know it’s going to take some time . . . .”
Jones predicts that, within two-and-a-half weeks, Manziel will be up to speed. Then the question becomes whether he can seriously compete for the starting job.
