Ravens Among the Most Interesting Stories of NFL Draft

NFL Draft Preview: Ravens Positional Needs And Potential First-Rounders NFL DRAFT: Baltimore Ravens draft selections

The Ravens sent the Eagles their second-round pick, fourth-round pick and a 2019 second-round pick in exchange for the Eagles' first-round pick and fourth-round selection.

Hurst becomes the third Gamecock in 2018 to be selected in the first round of a professional draft, joining women's soccer standout Savannah McCaskill (second overall in the National Women's Soccer League) and women's basketball star A'ja Wilson (first overall in the WNBA).

That kid was Ferris State defensive end Zach Sieler, the 193rd and last pick for Newsome.

Thursday's draft ushers in a new class of college players into the pros - and this year, the draft ushers out Ozzie Newsome, who will conduct his final draft as Ravens general manager.

"We're still going to have to shore up the end of the games on defense", Luby said, "but on offense you have to have playmakers nowadays".

Mayfield and Darnold were among four quarterbacks taken in the first round.

Newsome, 62, has been in charge of the Ravens since the franchise arrived in Baltimore from Cleveland following the 1995 season. "We want players who are invested in our program. And then when we got to finally pick at 25, I think one player had went off the board at that point, and that's when we chose to go with Hayden". The Ravens get the Eagles No. 32, which was used to take Jackson, and the Eagles' 4th round pick at No. 132. The comparison is obvious, but Michael Vick in his prime is the closest thing that we've seen to what Lamar Jackson could be in the NFL.

New Shepard consists of a single-stage reusable booster and passenger capsules. "Earth is the best planet in our solar system". Both Bezos's Blue Origin and Elon Musk's SpaceX take pride in their mission to build reusable space vehicles.


Jackson, humble as ever, chose not to go the Josh Rosen route and express any ill will towards the teams that passed on him, instead focusing on his happiness with the situation he now finds himself in.

There was speculation that the Ravens would draft Notre Dame offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey, a former teammate of Ravens left tackle Ronnie Stanley.

Another interesting element that caused the board to fall so well for Baltimore was the unexpected run on offensive linemen. The process started shortly after the former Heisman trophy victor declared for the Draft back in January, with Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay both declaring that Jackson would need to play wide receiver in order to succeed in the NFL.

When the draft started Newsome and DeCosta had just eight picks.

"I've had bad plays and come back and had great games", he said after OU's Pro Day.

"We have options at our disposal", Roseman said. "It doesn't say anything other than we got better as a football team".
