Despite throwing for 9,043 yards and 69 touchdowns and running for another 4,132 yards and 50 scores at Louisville, Jackson's pre-draft process was dominated by talk that he was too small and slight to succeed at quarterback in the National Football League and should switch to receiver, with some teams reportedly asking him to work out at that position.
Notes: Southern Regional High School grad Mike Gesicki, a tight end out of Penn State, was not drafted in the first round, but will is expected to be selected in Friday's second round.
With the final pick of the first round, Baltimore traded with Philadelphia back into the first round and took the fifth quarterback and second Heisman Trophy victor of the first round.

In the video, Belli describes the terror that was unleashed in the late 1970s during a string of rapes in the Sacramento area. First he struck in the foothills east of Sacramento , raping at least 46 women, before he began killing and headed south.
So by reaching on the linemen, teams let other highly rated prospects slip down the board, giving the Ravens more options and the comfort to know they could trade back and still get a player they valued.
This also brings up an additional benefit to moving up into the 1st round as opposed to the early 2nd to get Jackson.
"We have a great quarterback in Joe Flacco". The Ravens have missed the playoffs for three straight seasons, they have dealt with the fallout from a national anthem protest that angered many fans, and they have failed to generate much buzz with a roster devoid of dynamic playmakers.
Yes, at the end of a long day, the Eagles ultimately capitalized on the fall of one of the draft's elite quarterbacks.
