Countdown to 2020: Best Raiders player to wear No. 70 all-time
Henry Lawrence (1974-1986)
The Oakland Raiders made Henry Lawrence their first round pick in the 1974 NFL Draft, selecting the towering tackle out of Florida A&M. From there, Lawrence would go on to spend his entire 13-year career with the franchise, picking up a ton of hardware along the way.
A member of one of the more dominant offensive lines in NFL history, Lawrence helped pave the way for the organization’s three Super Bowl wins, pushing back defenders with the likes of Gene Upshaw and Art Shell. A two-time Pro Bowler in 1983 and 1984, Lawrence cracked the starting lineup in his fourth year as a pro, and never looked back.
Lawrence played in 20 playoff games for the Raiders, and is a beloved member of Raider Nation, having lit the Al Davis torch back in 2016. You cannot write the history of the Raiders without Lawrence, and he was an easy choice as the best player in team history to wear the No. 70.
