The Las Vegas Raiders drafted a potential x-factor in the third round in Lynn Bowden Jr. out of Kentucky. Here’s how the all-purpose player fits in with the Silver and Black.
The Las Vegas Raiders got faster and more dynamic in the offseason on both sides of the ball with one goal in mind: to reach the postseason for just the second time since 2002. Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock understand that a competitive AFC West lies in the way, and to reach the goal of the playoffs requires executing a good gameplan into wins.
Having an x-factor helps achieve that goal as well, and Las Vegas may have one in the form of all-purpose player Lynn Bowden Jr. The third-round pick out of Kentucky saw snaps at multiple positions during his three seasons with the Wildcats, and that experience could translate into making the Raiders more dangerous on offense.
Let’s take a look at Lynn Bowden’s production in college, why Las Vegas drafted him in the third round, and how he fits into the Raiders’ system this coming season.
