It would not be a surprise if Zack Moss ends up being a Las Vegas Raider.

The Utah running back fits exactly what the Raiders could use. Moss is a bigger running back who would be a great backup to 2019 first-round pick, Josh Jacobs. He had a brilliant rookie season, but he dealt with injuries and missed three games down the stretch.

The Raiders need a bigger back who can keep Jacobs fresh and start in his place if he is injured. Therefore, Las Vegas will probably start looking for running backs in the third round, where they currently have three picks.

Moss is probably on a short list of running backs the Raiders are looking at. We mentioned him in this recent piece on potential running backs the Raiders could draft.

Moss (5-foot-9, 223 pounds) averaged six yards an attempt last season and had 1,416 yards rushing in 2019.

Check out this video on Moss breaking down his playing style and talking about his overall approach to the game.

Seems like a great fit for Las Vegas, doesn’t he?
