The Oakland Raiders already have a new quarterback this season. Now they have a new starting center, too.    

Rookie Jared 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.
