He can do a little bit of everything, including pass protect.It will be interesting to see how long Gruden will hold back his talented rookie back before unleashing him fully into weekly game plans.When asked if there was anything that has surprised him about training camp so far, Jacobs responded by saying, “I guess how, it’s smooth, honestly.I thought it was going to be way rougher than what it is.But I guess that’s just because I kind of like mentally knew a lot coming in but physically it feels smooth on my body.”If there are two things that we learned from this interview it’s that Nick Saban runs a very pro like program that prepares his prospects well and Josh Jacobs is very much ahead of the game.Follow @Egroat5 One of the most highly anticipated drafts in Raiders franchise history has now come to an end with the Raiders making their final selection in round seven.With pick 230 overall the Raiders..."One of the most highly anticipated drafts in Raiders franchise history has now come to an end with the Raiders making their final selection in round seven.With pick 230 overall the Raiders selected defensive end, Quinton Bell from Prairie View A&M.Bell is the third defensive end added to the roster through the draft.Bell is an intriguing prospect to say the least.When he arrived at Prairie View he was a 219 pound wide receiver.In 2018, after a coaching change he was asked to move to the defensive side of the ball.In his first and only season as an edge rusher he collected 7.5 sacks.It was at his pro day where he really turned heads.His forty time (4.38), vertical jump (41 inch), broad jump (11 feet), and bench press (23) would have ranked him in the top ten at several positions.Weighing only 240 pounds, Bell could be used in a hybrid edge/linebacker role.Raiders 2019 Draft SelectionsRound 1, pick 4 - Clelin Ferrell Marquel Lee Jersey , ED, ClemsonRound 1, pick 24 (from CHI) - Josh Jacobs, RB, AlabamaRound 1, pick 27 -Johnathan Abram, S Mississippi StRound 2, Pick 40 - Trayvon Mullen, CB, ClemsonRound 4, pick 106 - Maxx Crosby, ED, Eastern MichiganRound 4, pick 129 - Isaiah Johnson, CB, HoustonRound 4, pick 137 - Foster Moreau, TE, LSURound 5, pick 149 - Hunter Renfrow, WR, ClemsonRound 7, pick 230- Quinton Bell, DE, Prairie View A&M
