abc7 sports sponsored by river rock casino. >> good evening. the 49ers and the raiders went 4-12 last year. the reward for that is that both had top five picks in the nfl draft, which began tonight in nashville. the silver and black kind of surprised people with the fourth overall pick. they took clemson defensive end clelin ferrell, who most people viewed as a mid first rounder, maybe not as high as number four. 6'4", 264 pounds, acc defensive player of the year for the national champs. raiders desperate for a pass rush. general manager mike mayock was asked why take ferrell? >> there were flashier player, players teams may have had higher on their boards.
on our board, it was he and bosa at that position, okay. right next to each other at that position. . >> and the niners took bosa. we'll get to that in a minute. with the 24th overall pick the raiders selected josh jacobs out of alabama. you want to talk about overcoming adversity. listen to this. he grew up only with his dad. they lived in a car and motels. he did not have his own bed until he got into college, and credits his father for keeping him together. >> he has been all the inspiration. he has been definitely my backbone. whenever i feel like giving up or feel like quitting, he is always the one pushing me. i owe him all the credit. >> i'm just honored to be this kid's dad. and been there to stick in there with. an i ms up. >> amazing story really. so after arizona took kyler murray, number one, the 49ers chose nick bosa with the second pick. his brother plays with the chargers.
