Oakland Raiders Safety Karl Joseph Named to PFWA All-Rookie Team
Oakland Raiders Safety Karl Joseph has been named to PFWA’s All-Rookie team.
The 14th overall selection of the 2016 NFL Draft, Oakland Raiders safety Karl Joseph, was named to Pro Football Writers of America’s All-Rookie team.
While recovering from offseason ACL surgery, Joseph missed plenty of time and reps in training camp and the preseason, and was limited to special teams duty in the first two weeks of the regular season. And he also missed the final four games of the year, plus the playoff game, with a toe injury
Despite the missed time, Joseph finished his rookie campaign with 60 tackles, 6 passes defensed and 1 interception, and played well enough to earn this selection.
