2019 NFL Draft: Oakland Raiders select Josh Jacobs

Marshawn Lynch retired, and the ‘Bama RB will slide right in to his new home.

NCAA Football: College Football Playoff National Championship-Clemson vs Alabama Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

After picking a Clemson player with the first of their three first round picks, the Oakland Raiders dove into the other side of the National Championship Game, taking Alabama Crimson Tide running back Josh Jacobs at 24.

Jacobs, like most Alabama running backs of the past few years, split carries but looked great in the time he saw the field. His skills should translate just fine to the NFL.

Congratulations to Josh Jacobs, and best of luck to him in Oakland.
