The Raiders addressed one of their biggest needs on offense with the No. 24 pick, selecting Alabama running back Josh Jacobs.

Jacobs fills the hole that was left by the retirement of Marshawn Lynch. Jacobs is a physical runner who can run through tackles like Lynch but he can also come out of the backfield to catch the ball. He split carries with Najee Harris last season but averaged 5.33 yards per carry with 11 touchdowns.

The Raiders are scheduled to take their third and final first-round pick at No. 27.
