The Las Vegas Raiders have an electric offense in 2022. They were exciting last season, but the addition of WR Davante Adams only elevates the hype. The running back position is stirring a lot of discussion, though. Veteran Josh Jacobs has held down the role for years, but rookie Zamir White is pushing for a very involved role.
Raiders rookie running back Zamir White will push for touches in his first season.
He was my 3rd ranked running back in this past class. He’s powerful, can do damage after contact, has solid speed.pic.twitter.com/otwAMIEzyv

White is nicknamed “Zeus” for his physical traits. From a physical scope, he looks like one of the greatest athletes in the entire NFL. He runs with purpose. The Raiders need a more consistent force in between the tackles. Jacobs has been a good option for them, but giving him more plays off may help his health and burst in the long run. White provides that and more.
So Zamir White is gonna be that kinda guy for the Raiders.. tank. pic.twitter.com/tDVjCJ6nYn

Not to mention, there have been rumors swirling about Jacobs being available in a trade. It doesn’t seem likely that there Raiders will move him before the season, but it is something to keep an eye on for now.
White will play a role for the Raiders regardless this season. The capacity of his involvement is the only part left to find out once we get into the meat of the regular season.
