The Las Vegas Raiders have a devastating one-two punch at running back this season, but who rounds out the depth chart heading into training camp?
Last season, the Las Vegas Raiders were solid on the offensive side of the ball, thanks to great play from quarterback Derek Carr, and Pro Bowl seasons from tight end Darren Waller, and running back Josh Jacobs. In only his second season in the NFL, Jacobs has already established himself as one of the best in the game, and he will head the Raiders running back room again in 2021.
With a revamped offensive line, and serious question marks at the wide receiver position, it will be even more important that Jacobs had another big year in 2021. While new faces are along the offensive line, it is still a talented group, and there are enough weapons around him for him to be able to create a lot of offense.
Jacobs is still very young, but over the past few seasons, injuries have crept up, and have forced him to miss time. Las Vegas needs to do everything they can to keep him healthy for the majority of the 2021 campaign, especially late, when they try to cap off a playoff push.
Outside of Jacobs, the Raiders have solid depth, and we dive into the position group heading into training camp here.
