Lamar Jackson selected 32th overall by the Ravens in 2018 NFL Draft

The Ravens snagged QB Lamar Jackson with the last pick of Round 1

The Baltimore Ravens traded back into the first round by acquiring the 32nd and final pick of the first round in the 2018 National Football League draft. The former SC tight end was selected 25th overall after finishing the 2017 season with a 79.4 overall grade and after Baltimore made two draft-day trades.

The 2016 Heisman victor rewrote the U of L record book while rocking the Cardinal bird on his helmet. Jackson won the Heisman in 2016 and finished third in the voting last season.

Jackson declared for the draft in January, foregoing his senior season.

While the deal gives the Eagles at least one pick on the second day of the draft, and future capital, it's just not very sexy to spin defense of a Super Bowl title by trading out of the first day to get to the second day. He will likely have a couple years to learn and develop behind Joe Flacco, and Ravens offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg has previous experience calling plays for running type quarterbacks.

Jackson said he had excellent meetings with head coach John Harbaugh and quarterbacks coach James Urban during a pre-daft visit with Baltimore.

"If they moved up, and they moved up aggressively for Lamar Jackson, it wouldn't surprise me", Mayock said.

The runner-up was what Jackson said to the NFL Network's Deion Sanders right after.

Jackson was one of five quarterbacks selected in the first round Thursday night. "I think that's how he'll play". The Ravens can create $18.5 million in cap space in 2019 by designating him as a post-June 1 cut. "I think every person in this draft should have the exact same answer".

With Robert Griffin III also on the team, the Ravens now have two of the last seven Heisman winners on their quarterback depth chart.

He went 22-11 as a starting quarterback at Louisville and was a touchdown machine.

However, there have been questions about his accuracy throwing the ball with a career 57.0 percent completion rate while never topping 60 percent in any of his three collegiate seasons.
