Jon Gruden's NFL draft calls to Josh Jacobs, Johnathan Abram are hilarious


The Raiders changed three lives Thursday night.

Clelin Ferrell, Josh Jacobs and Johnathan Abram all received phone calls from Raiders general manager Mike Mayock and coach Jon Gruden.

And let's just say, they were amazing.

Mayock made the call to Ferrell, and it was an emotional moment for the Clemson defensive lineman, who cried during most of the conversation.

Then, Gruden made the calls to Jacobs and Abram. That's when things got interesting.

When Jacobs answered the phone, Gruden asked him if he remembers meeting him at the NFL Scouting Combine.

We're pretty sure no one would forget meeting Chucky.

At the end of the call, Gruden asks Jacobs if he's in Nashville at the draft. When Jacobs says he is, Gruden tells him he's going to turn on the TV to make sure Jacobs says some nice things about his new team.

Abram was the Raiders' final pick of the night.

"Just know this, I'm going to be calling plays against you this spring, and I can't wait to get after your ass, man," Gruden said.

"I'm going to light your ass up, Coach," Abram responded.

Just incredible. We need more of these phone calls between Gruden and the rest of the Raiders' draft picks.
