The Oakland Raiders drafted a trio of playmakers Thursday night during the 2019 NFL Draft, selecting Clemson defensive end Clelin Ferrell No. 4 overall, Alabama running back Josh Jacobs No. 24 overall, and Mississippi State safety Johnathan Abram No. 27 overall.
Each is an experienced player with a large body of work at the collegiate level. Jacobs and Ferrell have performed exceptionally on some of the biggest stages, while Abram clashed with some of the best players in the SEC.
