Wes Bunting of the National Football Post has more on Nix, who he labels as the top overall signing for the Raiders.

A good athlete for the position who can win in the pass game and seal lanes inside as a run blocker as well. Has some upside as a power play moving lineman off the ball and looks like a capable starter in the NFL.

Talk about the Raiders with fans of the team over at Silver and Black Pride.
