The first round of the 2018 NFL Draft ended just how it began, with a Heisman Trophy winner being selected. Baker Mayfield went first overall to the Cleveland Browns, while the Baltimore Ravens traded up to draft Louisville quarterback and 2016 winner Lamar Jackson.
The response to the move on Twitter was generally positive.
Let’s go like I said …in Ozzie we trust !!! Lamar Jackson !!!!
