1. Leonard Fournette, RB, Jaguars

While they’re at it, why not ask the Jaguars to throw Leonard Fournette in the possible Yannick Ngakoue deal?

There have been plenty of rumors that the Jaguars and Fournette are headed for an eventual separation, and with Jacksonville declining his fifth-year option as a former first-round pick, he would be a tremendous one-year rental for the Raiders to go along with 2019 first-round pick Josh Jacobs.

In today’s NFL, you have to have two running backs, and Fournette is easily better than anyone else in the Raiders’ current stable of players.

With Jacobs and Fournette, the Raiders could absolutely pound the ball at any team they face. They have such a physical offensive line already and some very good blocking tight ends, how would you ever catch your breath if you’re a defensive team going up against these guys?

If the price right now is low on Fournette and the Jaguars are having an ‘everything must go’ kind of sale on their players, throw an extra mid-round pick in there for Fournette and bring both players over from the Jags.
