Veldheer spent nearly all of training camp practicing at left tackle but beat out incumbent Samson Satele after moving to center and will be in the starting lineup when the Raiders open the season at Tennessee on Sept. 12.||||||| Veldheer, a third-round draft pick who played at Division II Hillsdale College in Michigan, is Oakland's fourth different opening day starting center in four years. "I'm just very excited with the opportunity and I can't wait to play (against the Titans)," Veldheer said after practice Sunday. "All I did when I got here was worked as hard as I could at any position they put me at. I knew that would take me to where I needed to be."
