The Raiders have signed two running backs, Jalen Richard and Isaiah Crowell this offseason, but there is still work to be done. They also have Chris Warren III, a promising young back.
However, none of those backs are Josh Jacobs. Jacobs is the best running back coming out this year, and was an absolute beast for Alabama last season. He is a huge threat out of the backfield, and general managers have made the comparison to Le’Veon Bell.
Think about this for a second, he’s only touched the ball 300 times while at Alabama. That is huge for a running back, a position that doesn’t age very well. The Raiders haven’t had a good running back, who is a game changer, in a long time, but with Jacobs, that will all change.
