The Raiders used a second-round pick on Bowden, who's played numerous positions, though they're officially listing him as a running back. The Raiders clearly have better receivers on their roster heading into this season, and while they did allow DeAndre Washington and his 40 targets walk, it's tough to find very much work available to Bowden. He's a name to watch, though, as you don't spend a second-round pick on a player you don't have plans for. Keep him on waiver wire speed dial.

Bowden's a fun tape evaluation and the Raiders clearly have a role planned out for him in this offense. With that being said, it's unlikely that it leads to fantasy production any time soon. With Josh Jacobs and Jalen Richard present, it's hard to envision Bowden seeing significant work out of the backfield. Additionally, Hunter Renfrow has the slot role locked down in Las Vegas. Bowden's most likely to be a kick returner and/or schemed touches player in 2020, but he could take over the Jalen Richard role in 2021.

Lynn Bowden is an intriguing prospect he profiles as a gadget player, at least initially. It's possible one day he'll develop his blocking and route running to a level where he can take over from Jalen Richard but for now, he has the feel of a slow burner. He'll make the occasional splash play but don't expect much else from him in 2020.

Bowden would be listed as OW (offensive weapon) if he played in the XFL, RIP. He is an athlete that Gruden will have to figure out how to best use him.
