Running Back (5): Marshawn Lynch, Doug Martin, Jalen Richard, Chris Warren III, Keith Smith (FB)
The running back position has definitely been one to keep an eye on this summer, and it is an undrafted free agent who is turning the most heads. Chris Warren III has come in and become an extremely productive player for the Raiders through the first two preseason games, and it is going to be very hard to keep him off the 53-man roster.
Marshawn Lynch and Doug Martin are making the team, even though Martin has not played much the last two weeks. He was brought in here to be the team’s No. 2 running back, and that is not going to change, no matter how well Warren plays.
The battle between Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington looks to be swinging in Richard’s favor, even after a solid first preseason game from Washington. Keith Smith is a lock to make the 53-man as the team’s fullback, and if Warren continues to run the ball the way he has over the last month, the Raiders will carry five running backs in my opinion.
