    Can't really complain about picks 24 & 27. Not a fan of 1st rd running backs but the kid looks like a player.
    Safety is a hitter.

    Okay, back to polishing some mags for my FXRS I just had shipped to me from a guy in NY. My buddy californiafritz.com
    just finished building and balancing my 96" stroker for her. Check him out on his website or you tube. Headin' to Bonneville with him this year. Dude will be 70 but still builds and rides record setting shovelheads! 228mph in his streamliner and 179mph open. We're only old bodywise! Still 18 year old hell raisers in our minds....Lol
    PEACE GENTS
    Checl back tomorrow

    I liked this pick.

    I think he will help Carr out a ton.

    Josh Jacobs is a prototyp for today’s NFL. Someone asked can he catch? watch that vid. absolutely perfect fit for this offense. Grab Ford or Risner and then the TE from SJ state and it’s fucking on fellas!

    Jacobs was #2 on my board after Murray. Very little wear on his tires.... Perfect fit for this system.... He can play every down.... run.... pass.... even block..... Instantly the 2nd best skill player on our team.... and if he stays healthy, he’ll have a legit shot at ROY....

    This pick definitely makes up for the fact that I have no idea what the f/ck happened with our other 2 picks.

    The pick that makes sense to all of us. Can't say that about the other two.

    Dude can catch. Smooth runner, great patience, vision and hip movement. Can get low and looks for contact. Can run off tackle and has the speed to get outside. Not a homerun guy but that's ok because of his versatility. Nice pick at 24.

    That was me who asked if he can catch. He definitely can. He's a Gruden back. I'm loving this pick.

    I'm not even mad at our 4th pick overall. We didn't take him where i thought we should but i think he will win people over.

    The first thing that jumps out at me is that he looks a little slow.

    Just sayin'.

    Had we drafted Ford at #27, I would have really liked this 1st round. Kinda unfair to Abram, but I was really hoping #24 and #27 was going to make be feel better about #4. At least Jacobs makes me feel good, in terms of value, and Ferrell, in terms of a good football player.

    Looks like an ideal featured back to pound the rock, the emphasis being on "pound." doesn't dance a whole lot. Makes a cut or two early, plants his foot and goes. Pair him with a good FB and let them wear down a defense. As soon as he learns blitz pickups, he'll be ready to start.

    A good three down back but he isn't getting hit in the back field at Alabama and he can't rush the passer. Hope he is worth it.

    JOSH JACOBSRB, OAKLAND RAIDERS

    Raiders selected Alabama RB Josh Jacobs with the No. 24 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
    Jacobs is the first back off the board with the pick the Raiders got in the Khalil Mack deal last summer. Jacobs (5’10/219) operated as Derrick Henry’s lightly-used complement as a freshman, battled hamstring injuries and focused on special teams as a sophomore, then rushed 120 times for 640 yards (5.3 YPC) and 11 TDs as a 2018 junior, also catching 20 balls. Jacobs gained a first down or hit pay dirt on a nation-best 41% of his runs last season and averaged over 4.07 yards after contact per carry. Jacobs ran 4.60/4.63 at the Crimson Tide’s initial Pro Day but improved to 4.52 in later tests. Although Alabama’s competing talent and some bad fortune curbed Jacobs’ bulk production, his tape is starting caliber with an ascending all-around skill set as a pro-ready pass blocker, promising receiver, and fierce inside runner who maximizes yardage. He couldn't have asked for a better landing spot in terms of year-one production potential after Marshawn Lynch retired.

    Jacobs has elite hands, elite agility, good quicks, is a tackle breaking north south runner, but doesn't have elite wheels.

    Basically, Marshawn minus the elite nastiness.

    He's Grudens's Wheatley/Garner/Lynch combo special.

    Lynch ran a 4.46 40.

    Jacobs ran a 4.6.

    SLOW.


    Lynch also had a rock of a body.

    Jacobs looks puffy and soft.

    Sorry.


    I'm quite skeptical of this kid.

    I understand your concern. He appears to play faster than his combine time though.
    Let's see how it plays out.
    I'm more concerned about Carr than any of these draft picks.
