NFL Draft: Hayden Hurst is lone Round 1 tight end

  • Lamar Jackson says he can run 4.34 40-yard dash with turf toe

The Ravens selected SC tight end Hayden Hurst and former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Lamar Jackson from Louisville in a wild first round of the NFL Draft April 26 that included three trades by general manager Ozzie Newsome.

And Jackson brings some confidence too.

Jackson, the 2016 Heisman Trophy victor, became the the only player in FBS history to rush for at least 1,500 yards and pass for at least 3,500 yards in a season. Baltimore used the 32nd pick to take quarterback Lamar Jackson out of Louisville. I don't think he's a great passer despite good arm strength. Last season, Jackson threw for 3,660 yards with 27 touchdowns and had 1,601 yards rushing with 18 more scores. Just recently turned 21, Jackson might sit behind Joe Flacco for some time, but expect a quarterback controversy to brew in a hurry if Flacco struggles.

Jackson came back to school last fall heavily criticized for a reigning Heisman victor.

If Jackson is able to develop his pass accuracy a bit, he can be a scary player, but even if he isn't, we've seen highly-athletic quarterbacks with powerful arms and slight accuracy issues have a lot of success in the NFL (Vick come to mind).

NTSB investigators examine the wreckage of the engine on the Southwest Airlines plane that exploded mid flight. As per reports, the window panel also came off and the oxygen masks were also dropped down for passengers.


Jackson has just as much confidence as the others, suggesting he's better than all of them.

Of course, not all talent evaluators agree about Jackson; NFL Media's Tom Pelissero passed along one particularly damning assessment of the QB from an NFL offensive coordinator. Rosen and Allen averaged 8.3 and 6.7 yards per pass, respectively. His goal now becomes to do the same with the Ravens.

General manager Ozzie Newsome is leaving his post after the 2018 season, so this is his final National Football League draft.

Standout wide receivers at Iowa State (Allen Lazard) and Northern Iowa (Daurice Fountain) are also favorites to hear their names called into the National Football League ranks before the seven-round draft concludes on Saturday.
