Draft Scout Kelechi Osemele News
03/08/16 - OL Kelechi Osemele reportedly agreed in principle to a contract with the Oakland Raiders Tuesday (March 8).
NFL Network reported the five-year, $60 million deal would be signed at the start of free agency on Wednesday, creating a hole for the Baltimore Ravens at offensive guard.
The deal is not final. Osemele must pass a physical and cannot sign the deal until 4:01 p.m. ET Wednesday. Worth noting, the Raiders' five-year, $35 million deal with Rams right tackle Rodger Saffold fell apart in 2014 because of a failed physical.
Osemele shifted from guard to left tackle last season and excelled, driving up his price to more than $10 million per year, according to NFL Network. He allowed only one sack and 10 quarterback pressures.
Left tackle Donald Penn, 32, could return to the Raiders but if he departs in free agency, Osemele could step in at that position alongside 2014 third-round pick Gabe Jackson and center Rodney Hudson, a big-ticket free agent signed away from the Kansas City Chiefs in 2015.

His success at left guard could be a further boost to his value.
