Raiders sign 3rd #1 pick; number of unsigned picks down to 11 … In all the excitement over today’s supplemental draft, we neglected to mention that Oakland has come to terms with former Alabama RB Josh Jacobs, the third of the Raiders first-round picks this past April. Jacobs was selected with the 24th pick this year. We also neglected to mention that earlier in the week, Tampa Bay had signed former Auburn CB Jamel Dean, a 3rd round pick this spring. As a result, there are now only only 11 players from the 2019 draft that remain unsigned. Of those, 5 were first round picks this year including 4 taken within the first half dozen selections in DE Nick Bosa, chosen second overall by San Francisco, DT Quinnen Williams, the 3rd pick by the NY Jets, LB Devin White, selected 5th overall by Tampa Bay, and QB Daniel Jones, the 6th overall pick by the Giants. The other remaining unsigned first rounder is OLB Brian Burns of Carolina. The other 6 remaining unsigned 2019 draftees include second rounders WR Deebo Samuel of San Francisco, along with OT Dalton Risner and QB Drew Lock, both of Denver; and 3rd rounders WR Miles Boykin of Baltimore, and NY Giants OLB Oshane Ximines. The final unsigned pick is former Air Force LS Austin Cutting who was a 7th round pick by Minnesota.
