No players from Iowa selected during opening round of National Football League draft

Ravens full 2018 NFL draft picks

Instead, the Ravens called in a last-minute trade with the Eagles to make the former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback a first-round pick at No. 32, the final selection of the night at AT&T Stadium. 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.

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

Sam Darnold, nearly everyone's first pick, slipped to No. 3, where the Jets honored their pre-draft commitment to trade up for a passer. "The trades came to us, and we were able to acquire some picks ... and then have the ability to go back up and get the quarterback at the end of the round".

With the No. 25 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, the Ravens selected Hayden Hurst, tight end out of SC after trades with the Bills and Titans. Jackson finished his career 9,043 passing yards, 69 passing touchdowns, 4,132 rushing yards and 50 touchdowns.

ESPN analyst and former National Football League general manager Bill Polian, for instance, doesn't see Jackson as a quarterback at the next level. Jackson's frame may be thinner than Vick's, but it's easy to argue Jackson showed more toughness as a runner and more skills as a pocket passer than Vick did in school. Nonetheless, Jackson will first have a chance to prove he can play under center in the NFL.

"I've been talking about this Lamar Jackson thing for a while now", Mayock said.

It will be an interesting dynamic in Baltimore because the Ravens still have Flacco, who helped the franchise win a Super Bowl ring.

But Jackson refused to do so and has now been vindicated in his decision not to entertain a position switch, the Ravens making a move that signals a dramatic change in approach at quarterback for the franchise.

The Ravens were not a lot of fun to watch last season, with an offense that seemed stuck in low gear.
