Raiders ink final draft pick Jackson
By Paul Gutierrez
The Oakland Raiders announced Thursday afternoon the signing of third-round draft pick Gabe Jackson, giving the team contractual control over all eight of their draft picks just as the team ended the second week of OTAs.
The 6-feet-3, 335-pound Jackson, who was selected with the 81st overall pick of last month's draft out of Mississippi State, is expected to compete for the starting left guard spot after being a two-time All-American and starting all 52 games in four years for the Bulldogs.
