Selected by the Raiders in the first round (24th overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft, April 25, 2019. Alabama's stacked stable of running backs kept Jacobs from putting up huge numbers during his three years in Tuscaloosa. It didn't take many reps on offense, though, to see his talent. He played in 15 games as a true freshman reserve in 2016, carrying the ball 85 times for 567 yards and scoring four times while also being a factor in the passing game (14-156-11.1). A hamstring injury put him on the sidelines for the Tide's first two games in 2017, but he returned to contribute as a rusher (46-284-6.2, one TD), receiver (14-168-12.0, two TD) and kick returner (4-86-21.5) in 12 appearances (one start) that season. Jacobs became more of a focus for the offense in 2018, getting 120 carries, covering 640 yards (5.3 average) and scoring 11 touchdowns in 15 games (one start). He also caught 20 passes for 247 yards (12.4 average) and three scores and was a weapon as a kick returner (14-428-30.6, one TD) during the season for the SEC champs. He was the Most Valuable Player of the 2018 SEC Championship Game with 86 yards and two touchdowns on just eight carries (10.4 average).
