After an impressive rookie season in 2011, Raiders OL Stefen Wisniewski is one of the team's building blocks moving forward. The second-round pick started all 16 games, 15 coming at left guard and one at center. However, with C Samson Satele hitting free agency this spring and a new coaching staff running the team, Wisniewski is unsure what position he'll be at next season.

"I'm really not sure yet," Wisniewski told PFW. "There's a lot still to be determined, but I'm ready to play wherever they need me."

Wisniewski said he hasn't spoken with new head coach Dennis Allen or offensive coordinator Greg Knapp, but "expects to soon." Right now he is just resting, doing simple workout drills to stay in shape. In a few weeks, he plans on breaking down his rookie campaign and working on the areas he felt he was weakest. However, Wisniewski felt his first season as a pro was an overall success.

"I thought it went well, as far as how I played," Wisniewski said. "My goal was to not look like a rookie. I didn't want other teams to look at our offensive line and say 'Oh, that left guard is a rookie.' I held my own in there."
