Deion Sanders offers high praise for running back Josh Jacobs

Take a look at photos from the Raiders' second day of OTA practices in Alameda, Calif.

The Oakland Raiders entered the 2019 NFL Draft with a trio of first-round picks and addressed several team needs with those picks. Clelin Ferrell (No. 4 overall), Josh Jacobs (No. 24 overall), and Johnathan Abram (No. 27 overall) will help Head Coach Jon Gruden and General Manager Mike Mayock establish a new culture.

Ferrell and Abram weren’t present in Nashville for the 2019 NFL Draft, but Josh Jacobs was, and after hearing his name called to walk across the stage he had an opportunity to speak with NFL legend and NFL Network analyst Deion Sanders.

Wednesday, Sanders shared with Good Morning Football’s Kay Adams which rookies impressed him on draft night, including Jacobs.

Take a listen:

There are plenty of reasons to get excited about the upcoming season of Raiders football, and Sanders -- along with a multitude of fans -- think the sky is the limit for Jacobs during his rookie campaign.
