Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck 2WD
Your description sounds like a u-joint is bad. When a u-joint binds it causes torque in the transmission when the vehicle is not moving making shifting into first gear difficult.
The u-joints won't be lose as often is the case in the typical u-joint problem they will be stiff or frozen in place.
Change the offending u-joint. I always change both at the same time.

Hi, look for WETNESS at the Master cylinder, and at the Slave cylinder, attached to the Bell housing. The loss of fluid is reducing the Stroke of the Push Rod, which will create Clutch Drag, as you appear to describe.
