Raiders' DeAndre Washington: Viewed by GM as a complete back
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

GM Reggie McKenzie dismisses the notion that the 5-foot-8, 204-pound Washington is strictly a third-down option for the Raiders.

"We think he's a complete back, and when he gets out in space, he can make you look silly." McKenzie noted of Washington, who the Raiders selected in the fifth round (No. 143 overall) of the recent NFL Draft. "He can catch the ball, but he can run between the tackles as well as well as bouncing it outside. We think he's the total package as a runner." At this stage, Latavius Murray remains atop the team's running back depth chart and at 6-foot-3, 225 pounds, he's well-equipped to continue to handle an every-down role. Still, it's not hard to imagine a scenario in which Washington is able to eventually overtake Taiwan Jones, George Atkinson and Roy Helu in the team's backfield pecking order behind Murray, and if that happens, the rookie could carve out a degree of PPR utility in 2016.

Raiders' Clive Walford: Injures knee in ATV accident
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clive Walford injured his knee in an ATV accident earlier this offseason, FOX Sports reports.

Walford will miss spring practices, but he's ahead of schedule in his recovery and is expected to be available at some point during training camp. A 2015 third-round selection, he split snaps and targets with Mychal Rivera as a rookie, posting a 28-329-3 receiving line on 51 targets. As the better blocker of the two players, Walford could be in line for a major role increase this season.

Raiders' Latavius Murray: Gets a bit of competition
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rookie fifth-round selection DeAndre Washington will likely compete to serve as Murray's top backup, NBC Bay Area reports.

Despite being connected to an assortment of big-name free agents and rookies, the Raiders haven't done much to bolster their running back group, perhaps showing some faith in Murray. There's still some chance the team will add competition, but Murray's path to the starting job appears quite clear at the moment. DeAndre Washington, who checks in at 5-foot-8, 204 pounds, will likely threaten Murray's receiving workload more so than his carries - at least at the beginning of the season. Murray caught 41 of 53 targets in 2015, but he only managed 232 yards (5.7 YPR, 4.4 YPT) and didn't have any receiving touchdowns.

Raiders' Neiron Ball: Deemed healthy for offseason program
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ball (knee) is "doing everything" and expected to be "ready to roll" for the offseason program by Raiders' GM Reggie McKenzie.

Ball emerged in Week 5 of last season by holding Denver TE Owen Daniels without a catch on five targets. The performance earned Ball his first career start versus San Diego in Week 6, but shortly into the game he suffered a knee sprain, was ruled out by halftime, and failed to take a snap the rest of the year. Ball will serve as depth for an imposing Raiders outside linebacking corps in 2016 behind Khalil Mack, Bruce Irvin, Malcolm Smith, and perhaps Aldon Smith (suspension), should he return in November.

Raiders' Vadal Alexander: Headed to Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Oakland Raiders selected in the seventh round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 234th overall.

Alexander is an enormous figure but displayed bottom-grade athleticism at the Combine. The Raiders will try to groom him as a mauling guard.
