Rookie safety Abram makes big impression on Raiders

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) Johnathan Abram is making a big first impression on the Oakland Raiders.

The first-round rookie safety had a starring role on the debut episode of "Hard Knocks," fired up the fans with a pregame visit to the "Black Hole" in Oakland's first exhibition game and has been a loud presence with his hitting and talking on the practice field and preseason games.

"I just think he's wise beyond his years," defensive coordinator Paul Guenther said. "He doesn't act like a rookie. When he's out there, he sounds like a seven or eight-year vet. I think the players take notice of that. Just how he prepares, how he studies, how he communicates with the guys on and off the field. The thing is not too big for him. The players see that. He doesn't act like your typical rookie."
