"I'm pretty excited about the group I have to work with," Tice told SiriusXM NFL Radio, via CSNBayArea.com. "First of all, it's the biggest -- I was telling my wife and some friends the other day -- it's the biggest, most athletic group of guys I've worked with before."
"I think the guys on the offensive side are very impressive," Tice went on. "We have a good blend of older and middle-aged and some younger guys that are going be to rising stars in the league."
Tice singled out second-year guard Gabe Jackson, who the coach said had the best offseason of any lineman.
"I think he's a rising star," Tice said. "I think he has a chance to be a really good one."
For the first time in years, there is some hope in Oakland and the offensive side of the ball is a major reason why. Latavius Murray is an exciting running back prospect and the addition of Amari Cooper gives the team a potential star wide receiver. If the line does its job, Carr has everything he needs to take the next step.
