2002 Dodge Ram

I hear a noise when the truck is rolling at a low speed. Like when I take off from stop. It sounds like rubber rubbing something and it gets faster as I speed up. Its like something on the tire and the sound rotates on and off as you roll. But nothing I can see from the tire or the brakes is making the noise.
It also seems that there is a drag or small shack in the truck we I give it gas but stops when you take let off the gas.

Any Thoughts?

Found out it was the U Joint. Dodge Dealer wanted between $350-$400 to fix. Local reputable mechanic $61.67 using mopar parts.
