Jonathan Abram loves two things, hitting people and being in the spotlight. For those of you that don’t know this kid, He was the 27th overall pick by the Raiders in this years draft. During his time at Mississippi State, he impressed NFL scouts with his tight coverage and 170 total tackles in two years.
Post draft, he became the star of HBO’s Hard Knocks. He made it very clear that he likes to hit people the first episode and then won the crowd over with his charm.
Fast forward to week one of the 2019 season. He played a total of 53 snaps before he tore his rotator cuff. A hard loss for fans of the Silver and Black. Do you know what he said? DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS YOUNG MAN SAID??
“Yeah, I just started hitting people with my other shoulder.’ And that right there shows you what kind of man he is.”
THIS YOUNG MAN KEPT PLAYING AND DECIDED TO HIT PEOPLE WITH HIS OTHER SHOULDER. HE DEFINES GRIT AND TOUGHNESS.
He is honestly a true warrior. This kid decided to wear the same number as the Hall of Fame defensive back Charles Woodson, so he knew he had big shoes to fill. That quote instantly makes me think of the old school RRRRRRRRRAAAAAAIDDDERRRSSSSS. My bold prediction, This kid defines the Las Vegas Raiders next year and becomes a leader on their offense.
