PDTShareTweetShareShare2019 NFL Draft: Immediate reactions, grades of Raiders selection of safety Johnathan Abram with the 27th overall pickVasha Hunt-USA TODAY SportsAfter adding Clelin Ferrell and Josh Jacobs, the Raiders selected Mississippi State safety Johnathan Abram with the 27th overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft. How does the staff at Silver & Black Pride view the selection? Tyler GreenWhile Oakland signed Lamarcus Joyner in free agency, he is projected to primarily lineup in the nickel leaving Paul Guenther with just Karl Joseph and Erik Harris as safeties. The addition of Johnathan Abram significantly improves the depth of the secondary, as he can immediately step in as a box safety. Abram has solid range, but his best attribute is his physicality as he can set the tone of a defense with his style of play. NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah pegged Abram as his 23rd overall player in this draft, so the value is solid for Mike Mayock and Jon Gruden. Grade: B+BD WilliamsFirst what you love when watching Abram is the urgent speed he plays with on the field. Easily the fiercest hitter at the safety position in this class, Abram is tough and incredibly physical. That being said he has shown a concerning lack of discipline when in coverage and gives up long passes with regularity because he’s so focused on coming up and making a play against the run. He played mostly in the box as an extra linebacker at Mississippi State and has a long way to go before he can be an every down NFL safety. Basically a younger Karl Joseph.Grade: CMarcus KrauseJohnathan Abram is not someone I anticipated the Raiders selecting, he does not help the Raiders pass defense nearly enough to warrant selecting him at 27. If they wanted a safety then Nasir Adderley is the one I would have preferred, simply because his ball skills are so much better. The area that Abram does excel at is his tackling and run defense, he is a physical safety who definitely knows how to hit. Hopefully this pick works out better than I picture though, because the last thing the Raiders should have went after was another player who isn’t very good at playing the ball in the air for their secondary.Grade: CThomas WheatonJohnathan Abram seems to me like Karl Joseph 2.0, so why would the Raiders take him when Joseph is still on the roster? Abram is a box safety that is a sure tackler, but his coverage leaves a bit to be desired. The Raiders needed someone to cover tight ends. Can Abram do that? If he shows that he can, we will look back on this pick and We continue to traverse through the draft, picking out the best players taken in given rounds.

We started with the top 5 picks taken in the top 15 Rodney Hudson Jersey , then the best player in the bottom of the first, and the best player in the second round. Now we continue to the third round.The Raiders didn’t have a pick in the third round of this year’s draft. They traded it along with a 5th round pick to acquire Antonio Brown. I’d say that’s pretty good value for a third round pick. Especially if you consider the Raiders haven’t gotten a lot of value from the round of late.We talked about how bad the second round had been the past few years. The third round was just as bad. And again, the lone exception was that stellar 2014 draft. That’s when they landed Gabe Jackson in the third round. Other than him, though? Ugh.Last year’s third round picks Brandon Parker and Arden Key have a lot of work to do to prove they are viable. Parker was a disaster at right tackle and Arden Key mustered up just one sack despite starting most of the season at defensive end. Though it’s way too soon to use that as a way to judge how they may develop as a player.Prior to that it was quite ugly including Eddie Vanderdoes (2017), Shilique Calhoun (2016), Clive Walford (2015), Sio Moore (2013), and Tony Bergstrom (2012). Unlike the second round, there isn’t a long list of great talents from the third round. Though the round featured one of the greatest NFL players of all time who stands well above the rest.Art Shell (1968)Fifteen year NFL career. Eight Pro Bowls including 7 straight (1972-78). Two All Pros. Two Super Bowl rings. Hall of Famer. Member of the All 1970s first team. Shell became the Raiders’ full time starting left tackle in 1970 and didn’t miss a start the next nine years. He protected the left side for Ken Stabler all the way to the Raiders’ first Super Bowl win in 1976 and then did the same for Jim Plunkett in their second Super Bowl win in 1980.In total, Shell started 169 regular season games and 23 playoff games.Shell retired following the 1982 season and take over as Raiders as offensive line coach, where he would get a third Super Bowl ring. He would spend six years in the position. In 1989, he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Come the season, he was named interim head coach, replacing Mike Shanahan who Al Davis fired four games into the season.The newly minted Hall of Famer would have the interim tag removed and be the Raiders head coach for six years, boasting winning records in all but one of those seasons and an overall record of 54-38. Al Davis later said he regretted firing Shell, and 12 years later, welcomed him back as head coach. That would lead to the disastrous 2006 season.All told Shell spent 28 years with the Raiders, first as a player and then as a coach. Pretty good value for a third round pick out of Mid-Eastern Shore College. Oddly enough, two years later, the Raiders would again pull a talented player in the third round from that same college in Gerald Irons.Honorable mentions:Gabe Jackson (2014)Jared Veldheer (2010)Kirk Morrison (2005)Vann McElroy (1982)Mark van Eeghen (1974)Gerald Irons (1970)Bob Svihus (1965)Follow @LeviDamien
