As a coach you try to put them in position to make plays and impact the game. Typically those kinds of tweaks are reserved for the most talented players. The Raiders’ defense is currently in the process of finding their best players. They are looking for outspoken leaders and foundation players. Early returns from training camp has Johnathan Abram with a commanding lead in the outspoken department.The rookie 27th overall pick safety has quickly earned a reputation as a talker. Uncharacteristic so for a rookie in his first training camp. For his part, his play on the field is just as aggressive as his words. He is eager and hungry. And he’s a thumper. Making it hard for him to abide by the strict CBA rules that don’t allow for pads throughout the offseason when he wanted to get to hitting.We’ve now had two days of hitting at training camp and Abram is way past ready for it. He’s already earned a nickname — given to him by Special Teams Coordinator Rich Bisaccia — along with the respect of his teammates.“Oh, Bulldog? Yeah, bulldog has been great. Bulldog been great,” said fellow rookie top pick Clelin Ferrell. “He don’t take no stuff from nobody. He’s not afraid to speak his mind even though some of it be crazy coming out of his mouth, but it’s been real good.”No player on this defense is more known for their hard-hitting than veteran linebacker Vontaze Burfict — even to the point of crossing the line quite often and earning flags, fines, and suspensions. Abram reminds him a lot of himself.“He talks a little bit more than me though. Sometimes we got to tell him to shut up in the huddle but other than that, yeah, he backs it up,” Burfict said of Abram. “So, you can talk as much as you want as long as you back it up.”Knowing what kind of player Burfict is, it says a lot that even he has to tell Abram to cool it sometimes.“Abram is so aggressive, sometimes I have to tell him like, ‘hey you’ve got to hold it back a little bit, you know, we’re on the same team,’” said Burfict. “He keeps ragging when the Rams come in he doesn’t care. So, you know, he’s young Womens Bo Jackson Jersey , he’s talented, aggressive, and I can’t wait to see him play on Sundays.”Jon Gruden has raved about Abram since they drafted him and throughout the offseason. But he is finding it a chore to rein in the overzealous rookie.“That kid’s something else,” Gruden said after Tuesday’s camp practice. “I don’t want to make comparisons but he’s what we’re looking for. He’s a versatile guy that gives us so much energy on defense. And we have tried to control him. He’s hitting too many of our guys in shorts. He even hit some coaches the other day by accident.”Abram downplays the idea that he is going too hard after his own teammates, saying he’s “not out here trying to kill nobody,” adding that he’s “just trying to make a couple plays on the ball just like [the other guy] is.”Abram also sees the similarities to his approach and Burfict’s. That comparison is a double edged sword Abram must be careful with.“Because he’s a violent hitter. That’s the rep I get,” Abram said of he and Burfict. “But there’s more to it than that. I’m a hot head at times but that’s the one thing we talk about; controlling my emotions, being passionate not emotional.”Talking and hitting wasn’t going to earn Abram a spot with the first team; a spot he took by the end of OTA’s. He had to be a fast learner for that.Returning safety Erik Harris had been lining up with the first team for much of the offseason and he is a very intelligent player in his own rite. Abram had to show Jon Gruden and Paul Guenther that he had picked up the playbook before he stepped in with the first team.It’s a credit to Abram’s intelligence that he was able to get on the field, but it’s more than that. Paul Guenther has tweaked his defense scheme to cater to his and Karl Joseph’s aggressive styles. And you can add Erik Harris to that as well.There’s plenty of reason to be excited when it comes to Abram. He has all the intangibles. The intelligence, the passion, the leadership, and the raw talent. He doesn’t believe in the concept of being a rookie. He sees himself as a “first year player” instead. Whatever you want to call it, he still has a lot to learn to refine all his hair-on-fire abilities at the NFL level. Most importantly, to keep them within the NFL rulebooks. If he can, watch out. Either way, watch out. He’s coming. And not quietly.Follow @LeviDamien One of the things Raiders fans were looking forward to seeing the most in the team’s second preseason game was the debut of rookie running back Josh Jacobs.

They didn’t have to wait long. The first three plays were runs by Jacobs in which he ran for 6 yards, 8 yards, and 6 yards. That’s some nice chunks of yards against a first team defense.It didn’t appear as if he did anything spectacular, but that doesn’t mean he was just running through open space out there. He was running between the tackles and the fact that he hit the hole full speed and didn’t lose stride suggests he has one of the most important qualities a running back can have — vision.“He’s a good back, there’s no doubt Bo Jackson Jersey ,” said Jon Gruden. “He can run the ball, he’s got good vision, he can break arm tackles, he’s got some acceleration and burst, no doubt. And I think he’s going to be a really good player.”His quarterback has been looking forward to seeing what his new backfield mate can do as well. And he had a front row seat.“Really good, right?” said Derek Carr of the rookie back. “I thought his vision... you know I’ve been able to hand the ball off to some pretty good running backs. I’ve played with some fun one – MJD (Maurice Jones-Drew, DMac (Darren McFadden), Latavius [Murray], Marshawn [Lynch], Doug [Martin] – and that’s just the guys that have carried a lot of footballs. I’ve played with some good backs and watching his vision was really impressive. “I’ve got the best seat in the house. I’m sitting back there playing Madden, telling him to cut back and trying to run for him and he’s right up there with those guys and for him to do that, especially in his first game.“I think the thing that rubbed off on me the most about Josh was his want-to. It wasn’t like ‘Man, this is my first game’ nothing like that. He was just trying to bully people, he was out there trying to run hard, he didn’t care that he was a rookie, he’s trying to prove that he’s the best back in the NFL.”In total, Jacobs carried the ball four times for 21 yards (5.1 yards per carry). It’s a small sample size, which is kind of the story of his college career. He can be electric in bursts because he’s never been a workhorse back in is always fresh. What the Raiders see from him as far as his skillset is not all that surprising. He was the only back taken in the first round of this year’s draft for a reason. If he is to live up to the comparisons Carr is making, he will have to show he can carry the load and not wear down over a full game and a full season. But better to have the talent first. The durability they can work on.Follow @LeviDamien
