Was Lamar Jackson the real winner on Draft Day?

Author: Jon Kuzma


How could Lamar Jackson not be? First the day started off with him becoming the highest paid player in the league. Jackson signed a five year contract worth $250M. Then the Ravens followed that up by taking Zay Flowers in the first round. That means Jackson will have Odell Beckham Jr. and Flowers to throw to. It was huge night for Lamar Jackson. It was also a huge night for the Ravens too. What they’ve done has altered the trajectory of this franchise. They went from uncertainty whether Jackson would stick around or not. To completely overhauling their offense with some big time players. The Ravens are one of the teams that have won the off-season. It’s between them or the Jets.
