NFL Draft 2018: Oklahoma's Mark Andrews drafted No. 86 by Baltimore Ravens

John Harbaugh: 'Joe Flacco Is Our Quarterback'

The buzz with the Baltimore Ravens in the first round last night was this was the last draft for the Ravens with General Manager Ozzie Newsome.

One bird becomes another, as Jackson was selected with the 32nd pick of the NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens.

Newsome then gave up the 22nd pick and a sixth-rounder to Tennessee for the 25th overall pick and a fourth-round selection.

It's the same circumstance that Teddy Bridgewater experienced in 2014, when Minnesota traded to snag him with the final pick of the first round.

Because he was still completing his mechanical-engineering degree, he was ineligible for college all-star games, but at Michigan's Pro Day, he ran a 4.8-second 40-yard dash and bench-pressed 225 pounds 31 times.

He sits at No. 11 in career receiving yards at Oklahoma, making him the highest ranked tight end on the list.

Jackson could be a waiver wire addition if he takes over for Flacco at any point this season, but he's worth a second-round pick in rookie-only drafts for dynasty leagues.

Jackson, on the other hand, falls into a ideal situation, being able to sit behind Joe Flacco for a year or two in order to learn the National Football League game and to add some bulk to his frame to increase his durability. But Joe Flacco is our quarterback, that's the thing we've got to remember. "That's why we chose to bring Mark in to go along with Hayden".

After signing free agent receivers Michael Crabtree, John Brown and Willie Snead in recent weeks, Newsome collared two tight ends in the draft and on Saturday used two straight picks on receivers: Jaleel Scott of New Mexico State in the fourth round and Jordan Lasley of UCLA in the fifth. His father, Orlando Sr., played offensive tackle for six seasons with the Ravens.

"Hayden has lined up on the line of scrimmage..." Newsome will remain with the franchise in a to-be-determined role. You got in shape real quick. He also won the Mackey Award, which recognizes the best tight end in the country. While it may not have quite worked out with Ben Watson and Flacco, we've seen what can happen when Flacco clicks with a tight end.

Additionally, it is worth noting that Joe Flacco is in the final guaranteed year of his contract, so all the pressure is going to be on him to hang onto his job.
