His absence from the Raiders would leave a hole at the running back position. The front office signed Isaiah Crowell in free agency, a back who has proven to be a very good runner but too limited on passing downs to be considered a feature back.Jalen Richard was also tendered a 2nd round tag as a restricted free agent that basically locked him up in the team’s plans. No other team wanted to give up a 2nd round pick for Richard who is a competent 3rd down back.Jon Gruden has gone on record verbalizing a desire for a feature back, someone who can run the ball, catch passes, and pass protect. There are few running backs who possess this combination of skills and there was only one in the NFL draft who could do all three at a high level. Let’s look at Raiders first round pick Josh Jacobs and what he brings to the offense.Hard nosed runnerJacobs is a man who proved very tough for SEC defenses to take down. He shows great burst turning upfield on this run and delivers a hard blow to the safety who is attempting to tackle him. The best backs finish off their runs and punish defenses, Jacobs is the type of player who can potentially wear down NFL defenders.This is a great run against Mississippi State. In a 3rd and 1 situation, Jacobs needs to get this first down when he is met at the line of scrimmage by an unblocked linebacker. Jacobs lowers his pad level and explodes his hips through contact, keeping his feet churning. He also shows the awareness to throw a perfectly timed stiff arm at the defensive end who comes after.Effort should be something you can easily identify when watching a player. His tape should leave no questions about his passion for the game. Seeing Jacobs refuse to go down, driving and pumping his feet through contact is a very encouraging sign for Raiders fans.ElusivenessJacobs has great ability to deliver blows, power through tackle attempts Derek Carr Jersey White , and finish runs with strength and power. He also has a few moves up his sleeve for making defenders miss altogether. He combines his hard nose running style with an ability to take dramatic cutting angles. His ankle and hip flexibility to turn and then explode in another direction is a trait that will help him gain yards in the NFL.One of the best 2 yard runs you’ll ever see. Jacobs once again is able to change direction before the defender can adjust but also has the explosiveness to get to the goal line with defenders closing fast.When Jacobs takes the hand-off he is facing the sideline, he is able to plant, turn his hips, and burst at a 90 degree angle without losing momentum, accelerating into the middle of an unsuspecting defense. He also has some niftiness in the open field, breaking two tackle attempts before taking the last guy for a ride.Route runnerThis is a designed screen where Jacobs reverse pivots back inside. He shows the compact footwork and acceleration to take two dramatic cutting angles. One before the catch and the second after the catch. The most famous clip of Jacobs perhaps is this example of him running the seam route from the backfield. His 4.6 40 time doesn’t seem to affect him from getting downfield in a hurry. Alabam liked to run this concept with Jacobs because he is a great pass catcher and is dangerous with the ball in his hands. The best NFL offenses right now: Saints, Rams, Chiefs, Patriots, each have a running back who can run these vertical routes down field. Hopefully we can see some more plays like this run Jacobs in Silver and Black.Pass protectionThe least glamorous but perhaps most important aspect of running back play is protecting the franchise in pass protection. Running backs who are a liability in pass protection won’t stay on the field in passing situations as a result. Jacobs shows the willingness to be a great blocker Antonio Brown Raiders Jersey , he identifies the rush threat and attacks his man with great effort. He needs to do a better in this rep of squaring his shoulders and extending his arms. Again we see Jacobs do a great job of identifying the free runner and attacks him, giving his quarterback more room to work with. He lowers his shoulder too much in pass protection and needs to work on his technique but his willingness and power are there to become a dominant pass protector.ConclusionNot often do you see players who run with the power and hitting ability that Josh Jacobs possesses who are also great receivers.He is a rare back for this reason and worth a first round pick. In the last 4 years there have been 8 teams who selected a running back in the first round.6 of those teams went to the playoffs within the following two seasons. The Chargers made it after 3 seasons and the Giants still have a season to go since they took Saquon Barkley last year. The impact a young feature back can have on a team cannot be understated and often they improve the entire offense with dynamic play. Fifteen minutes into this game and Raider Nation was out of their minds excited about this team. They dominated to hapless Broncos in the season opener and were up 10-0 on the mighty Chiefs. The last three quarters didn’t go as swimmingly as the first five.With the first play of the second quarter, the Chiefs we all know showed up and they ran the Raiders into the locker room with a 28-10 half time lead. That would be the final score too as the Raiders were unable to score and the Chiefs knew it. That good feeling the Raiders and their fans had became a distant memory.BallersP.J. HallLook who decided to join the party. At least in the three quarters the defense held up, the 2018 second round pick had probably his best game as a pro. In the first quarter, while the Raiders defense was keeping the Chiefs at bay, Hall was a part of that. On the Chiefs’ second possession, he had a QB hit that nearly resulted in an interception and two plays later burst into the backfield to cut off the running lane leading to a tackle for loss.In the third quarter he had another tackle for loss, a pressure leading to yet another tackle for loss and shared a sack that led to a forced fumble. In short, he was a force on the line creating plays for the defense and helping hold the Chiefs running attack to 1.4 yards per carry.Tahir WhiteheadAnother pleasant surprise in this game. Not only did he lead the team in tackles (7) but three of those tackles were for a loss. On the Chiefs second scoring drive, Whitehead had a coverage incompletion and a tackle for a loss of four to put the Chiefs in third and 7. Obviously they picked it up Womens Bo Jackson Jersey , but that wasn’t Whitehead’s fault.Whitehead’s one bad play in the game came on the Chiefs’ third scoring drive. He was beaten by Damien Williams to give up a 32-yard catch. Two plays later he stuffed LeSean McCoy on a run, but it wasn’t enough. They still found the end zone again. He would add two more run stuffs at the line in the second half, one for a loss.Benson MayowaIn just 18 snaps, Mayowa would get in on two more sacks, sharing one with PJ Hall. On Mayowa’s second sack, he stripped the ball from Patrick Mahomes and the Raiders recovered. He also made a tackle on a short catch on third and 24. That’s 3.5 sacks for Mayowa which is second in the NFL.Josh JacobsThe biggest play of the day for the Raiders was Jacobs’ 51-yard run. It came on the first Raiders offensive play of the third quarter with the team down by 18. He would add a 6-yard run on that drive as well to put the Raiders in first and goal at the 4-yard-line. Unfortunately they went away from him and Derek Carr threw an interception on the next play.Jacobs would run for 99 yards on 12 carries before leaving with a groin injury. He had runs of 7 and 8 yards on the Raiders first scoring drive and began their second scoring drive with a 4-yard run.Trent BrownPrior to his injury in the third quarter, Brown still dominating the right side of the Raiders offensive line. He didn’t give up any pressure on Carr and cleared the way on several runs as well. One of those clearouts was the 51-yard Jacobs run. You all better hope his knee injury isn’t serious enough for him to miss any time because the dropoff from him is significant to say the least.Honorable MentionDarren Waller – He led the team in receiving with 6 catches on 7 targets for 63 yards.Continue to the Busters
