Texas A&M alumnus and Raiders right tackle Jermaine Eluemunor wins 2023 Craig Long Award

Texas A&M alumnus and Las Vegas Raiders offensive lineman Jermaine Eluemunor is the recipient of the 2023 Craig Long Award for his professionalism with the press.

The Raiders public relations staff shared the news via X on Friday afternoon.

As noted in the post, Eluemunor was chosen by the Las Vegas chapter of the Pro Football Writers of America for exemplifying professionalism and collaboration with the media this season. ESPN Raiders beat writer Paul Gutierrez presented Eluemunor with the honor.

The 6-foot-4, 325-pound right tackle was in Bryan-College Station for three seasons from 2014 to 2016. Eluemunor first started for the Aggies in the 2015 Music City Bowl against Louisville. Before the game, he won the individual hot chicken eating contest at the contest’s welcome party.

Eluemunor was drafted in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens. He has also suited up for the New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars. After being cut by the Jaguars before the 2021 season, Eluemunor signed with Las Vegas, where he has been ever since.
