77. Jalen Richard
Richard is a running back to watch, simply because he is Jack Del Rio’s “type”.
At 5’11, 207 lbs., Richard is similarly built to Raiders 5th-round selection DeAndre Washington — both of whom are nearly identical in size to Maurice Jones-Drew.
Richard runs with authority, and earned first-team Conference USA honors his senior season. Richard also contributed as a return man, so that is additional value that he brings to the table.
Assuming Latavius Murray and Washington will fill two of the running back spots, Richard will battle with Roy Helu Jr., Taiwan Jones and George Atkinson III for a roster spot.
