Raiders Rumors: What LV Likes About RB Zamir White as Potential Josh Jacobs Successor

Set Number: X163902 TK1

The Las Vegas Raiders selected Georgia running back Zamir White with the No. 122 overall pick in the 2022 NFL draft despite sporting a deep depth chart at the position.

However, ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported Monday that the Raiders may have been taking a long-term view at running back when adding White to the team:

“Fourth-round running back Zamir White was an interesting selection (No. 122), given the Raiders’ depth at the position with Josh Jacobs, Kenyan Drake, Brandon Bolden and Ameer Abdullah. But with Jacobs and Drake entering the final year of their contracts, the Raiders see a potential long-term solution in White. Here’s what I’m told they like about his game: ‘Speed, power, leadership, battling through adversity, comes from a winning program.'”

Of note, the Raiders declined starting running back Josh Jacobs’ fifth-year option, so the ex-Alabama star will be a free agent next offseason.
