A look at the Raiders fullback position

A look at the Oakland Raiders fullback position as the team is set to start training camp.

The Oakland Raiders are set to begin training camp in the end of July. To prepare, here's a quick positional breakdown of the fullbacks. 

On the roster: Marcel Reece, Jamize Olawale

Projected starter: Marcel Reece (kind of)

Analysis: The Oakland Raiders feature two versatile fullbacks in Marcel Reece and Jamize Olawale. Reece will be the starter when he returns from his suspension from violating the league policy of performance enhancing drugs (three games remain). Olawale received a contract extension last year, keeping him around as a Raider. 

Reece, who was a wide receiver in college, is a great receiver out of the backfield and offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave went through spurts of utilizing him as one. Olawale may not have quite the same hands as Reece, but he's still a very capable receiver out of the backfield. The Raiders have two solid fullbacks that can fill in when needed.
