Round 1, Pick #27: Josh Jacobs, RB, Alabama
When you pick three times in the First Round, you have some space for some added luxury. This was the pick Oakland gained from trading Amari Cooper and it would be nice to get a playmaker on offense in return. Many shake their head when an RB is selected in the First Round, but honestly good RBs can be very valuable to an offense. Josh Jacobs is one of my favorite players in the 2019 NFL Draft and I think he will be a big-time player at the next level because of his ability as a true dual threat RB. I believe Jacobs has the upside to be as good as Kareem Hunt.
