The Baltimore Ravens are likely heading to be buying this offseason for a working back to contend with Gus Edwards subsequent season. That could occur in the 2019 NFL draft and as early as the very first round if Alabama working back Josh Jacobs has something to say about it.
Through interviews at the 2019 NFL scouting mix, Jacobs stated heading to Baltimore would “be a very good glance.”
Jacobs talked a little bit about quarterback Lamar Jackson and excitedly known as the Ravens passer “different.” Jacobs also noted Baltimore’s heritage with Alabama gamers and the quantity of them currently on the roster would make his transition to the NFL much easier if the Ravens had been to decide on him.
Jacobs is not lying about Baltimore’s adore of Alabama gamers beneath former normal manager Ozzie Newsome. At present, the Ravens have 5 former Alabama gamers on their roster, such as offensive lineman Bradley Bozeman and cornerback Anthony Averett — each of whom had been chosen in the 2018 NFL draft.
It’s unclear if Baltimore will glance for a working back in the very first round but Jacobs has extensively been considered just one of the very best in this draft class. Jacobs resolved to not run at the NFL mix subsequent a groin personal injury that confined him. We’ll likely get a significantly far better glance at just how Jacobs measures from the rest of the working back team at Alabama’s Pro Working day, but the rest of the draft class has been putting up slower than envisioned 40-property dash situations.
With no definitive starter at working back and Jacobs’ comments at the mix, it appears like he’d be a very good in shape for the Ravens.
