Running back/Fullback (5):

Marshawn Lynch, Jalen Richard, DeAndre Washington, Jamize Olawale, Elijah Hood

Notable cuts: Taiwan Jones

The running back room seems to be solidified for the Raiders, especially after Raiders general manager signed Marshawn Lynch this offseason just prior to drafting Elijah Hood to boot.

Oakland now has two power backs as well as two change-of-pace backs in Raiders running backs Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington.

Hood is no guarantee to make the team, but he is a good insurance policy to the 31-year-old Lynch and likely brings more to the table than Taiwan Jones does at this stage of his career. Jones is also due over $1 million in 2017, making his release even more likely.
