“Josh Jacobs has signed his rookie contract with the #Raiders. He’ll be good to go for training camp.... and Hard Knocks.”
the kid lived in a car growing up. you know he's hungry. his adp will rise once hard knocks starts. can't wait
Not gonna matter. The man is the next Kenyan drake
Imagine drafting Josh Jacobs at 1.01 lmao
Daniel Jones will win roty
with AB and Tyrell taking the top off the defense, JJ will never see 8 man fronts
Did he get paid?
I’ll take Brandon Jacobs over josh Jacobs
Plenty will raise their eyebrows at the thought of Jacobs being the first running back selected in next year’s draft, and understandably so. First off, he’s still just a junior, which means he could decide to return for another title run in Tuscaloosa. Some might even contend that he’s not even the best running back prospect on his own team. Starter Damien Harris, who also surprised many by returning for his senior season in 2018, is widely regarded as one of the top backs in this year’s draft class. Then there’s other well-known starters like Iowa State’s David Montgomery, Kentucky’s Benny Snell, Jr., and Stanford’s Bryce Love. There are promising players recovering from injury, like Oklahoma’s Rodney Anderson. But Jacobs’ combination of a complete skill set and a lack of usage could make him a uniquely attractive prospect to the NFL. It’s unfair to compare any prospect to New Orleans Saints super-weapon Alvin Kamara, but Jacobs has all the traits that could make a pro team think they’re landing the next version of him by making this college backup the first running back off the board come next April.

The raiders need more help when it comes to next years draft....they won draft another rb, jacobs will be a fine all around back
He's no Dame Williams amirite @camelflauge
Josh Jacobs will get over 300 touches and rush for over 1000 yards this season for the #Raiders...if they can just fix that O-line.
Josh Jacobs is not an easy prospect to evaluate. For most NFL scouts and self-styled NFL Draft analysts on the internet, he is either the best running back in the 2019 NFL draft class or at least in the conversation. I have a distinct feeling that there will be more running backs like Josh Jacobs in the future who have limited college production but are highly drafted based on what they put on “tape”. Alvin Kamara and his massive success in New Orleans is definitely funding the hype behind Jacobs. Kamara had only 284 college touches for 1,977 yards and 23 touchdowns while splitting work with future Baylor wide receiver Jaylen Hurd.
Josh Jacobs Final Verdict Would I want any team that I root for to take Josh Jacobs in the NFL Draft? It depends. If Josh Jacobs went to Nevada and was a 3rd round projected draft pick, absolutely. However, he went to Alabama and had massive games under the lights in the college football playoffs. He also has the hype of being compared to Alvin Kamara (though he reminds me much more Deangelo Williams than any other running back) due to the fact that both didn’t play much in college. Draft stock is the most important variable when projecting NFL success, especially for fantasy football. If Josh Jacobs goes in the first or second round, he is almost destined to several years of being a good running back for fantasy football but I do not see the same impending stardom that other NFL Draft analysts are projecting. That is not to say that the traits that scouts praise aren’t evident; they are. However, Jacobs does not seem to be a Saquon Barkley-level prospect and certainly doesn’t have the production or combine measurables to generate those comparisons. Jacobs is mostly a Rorschach-blot prospect and what I see is a good running back who can catch passes who is likely to be drafted highly and be a fantasy football asset in the future.
^ someone REALLY wants the analyst tag
