Maurice Jones-Drew and Darren McFadden are the top running backs heading into Raiders' camp, but the team will need help behind them to maintain a steady rushing attack. Second-year pro Latavius Murray seems to be No. 3 at this point, with Kory Sheets also playing well.
OC Greg Olson’s take on both players: “We’re looking for big things from Latavius Murray right now, coming off the foot injury. He’s shown, to me, the biggest upside right now in what we’ve seen thus far, if he can stay healthy. Kory Sheets has played a lot of football coming straight to us from Canada and he’s shown some flashes. I think there’s probably a role for him. He’s not your big back, he’s more of a back that you can move back in the slot and can help you in the passing game.”
