Kenny Young picked 122nd overall in National Football League draft by Baltimore Ravens

Kenny Young picked 122nd overall in National Football League draft by Baltimore Ravens

Though he's adamant he can bring a championship to Baltimore, Jackson acknowledged that he has a lot of learning ahead and that he's looking forward to taking as much from former Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco as he can.

Could Ozzie Newsome have waited a little bit longer to draft Lamar Jackson instead of giving up a second round pick?

Newsome, 62, has been in charge of the Ravens since the franchise arrived in Baltimore from Cleveland following the 1995 season.

He started out with eight picks and added four more. It was a dream scenario, where everything the Ravens could hope for lined up. After moving back to 25, Moore had come off the board, in theory leaving Ridley, Hurst, and Jackson.

"This doesn't really change things in a sense that we're going to go with Joe and he's going to roll". It wasn't really me saying no ... it wasn't me trying to be cocky or anything like that.

On tape, the Ravens saw Brown consistently control defensive linemen, knock them down and play to the whistle.

He showed poise and patience in the Ravens war room as he negotiated six deals - including three during a frenetic opening night of the draft. But the Ravens are eternally looking for veteran receivers because they haven't developed a young starter, and Moore fit the description. 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.

"Just to know that he's going to be throwing me passes for the next however many years is awesome because he's a dynamic player", Hurst said.

In fact, Jackson ranks fifth among all players since 2000 in career NCAA touchdowns (passing, rushing, receiving combined), and third among quarterbacks, per Sports Reference.

"No, I think it's more motivation for the guys that are already there", he said, "whether it be Flacco, [Josh] Woodrum, RGIII, anyone that's in camp".

After waiting nearly four hours to get a chance to make a pick in the National Football League draft, the Philadelphia Eagles decided they could wait a little longer. Although there are some concerns with his mechanics, Jackson has improved as a passer every year.

Not all the good news for Jackson is on the field. "It doesn't say anything other than we got better as a football team".
