NFL Draft: How much will Baltimore Ravens use Lamar Jackson this year?

The Louisville product is considered the heir apparent to the aging Joe Flacco, but is it possible we'll get to see Jackson in 2018?

One of the more intriguing names that remained afloat in the second half of the first round was former Louisville star quarterback Lamar Jackson. His last-second touchdown catch in the playoffs last season is a career-highlight for Diggs. Just recently turned 21, Jackson might sit behind Joe Flacco for some time, but expect a quarterback controversy to brew in a hurry if Flacco struggles.

University of SC junior tight end Hayden Hurst was selected by the Baltimore Ravens with the 25th pick in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Jackson, speaking with Deion Sanders of the NFL Network after being selected, answered, when Sanders said, "I can see you're a little bit upset", said, "Yes sir". "This doesn't really change things in a sense that we're going to go with Joe and he's going to roll".

While they were on the clock to pick at the very end of the first round, they dealt the pick to Baltimore in exchange for the 52nd pick and 125th pick this year and a second-rounder next year.

"We had a group of guys at 32 that we would have been really excited about picking", Roseman said. "[At the end of the first round] I was like, ah, I wore my suit for no reason".

Is NXP Semiconductors NV (NASDAQ:NXPI) The Right Stock For Heady Investors?

The former Gamecock didn't always play football. "I'm just honored to be where I'm at right now".

Assistant general manager Eric DeCosta, who will succeed Newsome as GM, choked up as he spoke of Newsome making his final pick, and noted that in a fitting gesture, owner Steve Bisciotti switched Newsome's and DeCosta's chairs in the Ravens draft room. "That was one of the greatest moments that I'll ever experience in my professional life".

They said Rosen would likely slide for "character issues" (translation: his off-field interests and opinions strayed from myopic National Football League ideals), and though he ended up being the fourth quarterback off the board, the Cardinals felt the need to trade up to No. 10 overall for the UCLA passer.

Newsome's contract expires after this season.

The move was the culmination of a wild first round that saw various teams trading up and down while others made some puzzling selections.

Newsome, 62, has been in charge of the Ravens since the franchise arrived in Baltimore from Cleveland following the 1995 season. Baltimore went 9-7 last season, losing the finale to Cincinnati 31-27 when a victory would have given the Ravens a wild-card berth.
