It has been quite a year for Jacoby Ford. When the Raiders traded away Kirk Morrison and used the pick acquired to draft the receiver from Clemson most assumed it was another one of Al’s 40-yard specials.
Yes, Ford did happen to run the fastest 40 at the combine assuring he was all over the Davis radar. But Ford has proven there is much more to his game than track speed. This guy is a straight up playmaker who could have a Pro Bowl invite coming his way in his first lap around the NFL.
On Sunday, Ford took the opening kick 99 yards to the house. That would be the third time he returned a kick for a six, a Raiders record. Before this year, no Raider had ever taken the opening kick to the house. Ford has done it twice.
As stated previously, there is much more to his game. Ford has scored TD’s in almost every way imaginable. Let’s not forget some of the clutch grabs he’s made along the way as well.
He’s quickly becoming one of the most electric players in all of football and he’s constantly finding new ways to amaze. So, sit back, relax and enjoy some of the best moments of this truly amazing record setting Raider rookie!
