Here’s what Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie had to say about new running back DeAndre Washington, per the team’s website:
“DeAndre, he’s more than just a third-down back. He can pound it up in there. The Raider Nation will find out fast just how physical he is. We think he’s a complete back, and when he gets out in space, he can make you look silly. 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. We really like him.”Of course, you would expect a GM to talk up their own draft pick. But I think there’s reason to believe this is more than just hype, that Washington is poised to make a rookie impact and make big trouble for Latavius Murray.
