Nearly a month ago, the Las Vegas Raiders made Lynn Bowden the 80th pick of the 2020 NFL Draft. The First Team All-American’s career at Kentucky blue was a nonstop highlight reel, and Raider fans are expecting similar production when he dons the silver and black.
The organization gave their fans a taste of what’s to come in a tribute video shared on Twitter.

The Raiders drafted Bowden as a running back and plan to start him off at that position, according to head coach Jon Gruden. Las Vegas loaded up on offensive talent early in the draft, selecting two wide receivers: Alabama’s Henry Ruggs in the first round and South Carolina’s Bryan Edwards one pick after Bowden in the third.
The Raiders appear to be in for an offensive revolution, and with his versatility and grit, Bowden could be a major difference-maker early in his career.
