Lamar Jackson's Draft Slot (#32) Value Estimated at $9471823

"Even though there's a finality with that, there's not finality for what I'm going to continue to do with the Baltimore Ravens", he said.

The Ravens selected Jackson in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, 32nd overall.

The Baltimore Ravens made 12 selections in the 2018 National Football League draft after starting the entire thing with just eight. "This doesn't really change things in a sense that we're going to go with Joe and he's going to roll".

Joe Flacco is Baltimore's quarterback for now, but Jackson is sure to get some consideration in the near future after Newsome jumped back into the first round to snag the man who threw a combined 57 touchdown passes over the past two years.

"I don't know, but that helped us make the trade because we felt there's a cluster of guys that were together for us".

As for next year, the Eagles will now have two second round picks as well as two seventh-round selections.

HERE'S THE CATCH: The theme of this offseason for Baltimore has been to overhaul the receiving corps, and Newsome continued the process in the draft. He moved back twice in the first round before selecting SC tight end Hayden Hurst at No. 25, providing quarterback Joe Flacco with a downfield threat from the slot.

General manager Ozzie Newsome must have sensed that as he maneuvered through the first round to position himself for the dramatic final pick that brought the Ravens Heisman Trophy quarterback Lamar Jackson.

With Andrews, the Ravens actually got a better tight end with the 86 pick than they did with the 25 pick.

The Cleveland Browns continued a strong start to the draft, grabbing Nevada tackle Austin Corbett with the first pick of the second round, as well as Georgia running back Nick Chubb, and Miami defensive end Chad Thomas on Day 2. "It doesn't say anything other than we got better as a football team". "I think Joe knows his time's nearly up here".

Newsome remembers when Brown was around the team as a 10-year-old. "He wrote a note ... that if he was fortunate enough to get the chance to come play for us, it would be very special". He identified a future starting quarterback, the cornerstone of the franchise's future.

"It was masterful the way it happened in the draft room tonight", Newsome said when the team finally came down for its post-draft presser. We all know that Lamar Jackson is a Heisman Trophy victor, who essentially rewrote the college football and Louisville football record books with 9,043 passing yards, and 69 passing touchdowns while gaining 4,132 yards on the ground and scoring another 50 touchdowns with his legs during his career at Louisville.
