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.

The streets of Managua wore a devastated look following the clashes between the police and the protesters, AFP said further. Voices cry his name and someone presses a piece of cloth to his head to try to staunch the stream of blood.
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.
