The Baltimore Ravens were able to stack up plenty of talent in their 2018 draft class. Not only were they able to secure the league’s second-ever unanimous MVP in quarterback Lamar Jackson, but they added multiple future Pro Bowl and All-Pro players outside of the signal caller.

When grading each team’s 2018 rookie class, Ian Wharton of Bleacher Report gave Baltimore an A for what they were able to bring in during draft weekend. He praised their class as a whole, even though the order of their picks could be considered questionable.

“Trading up to No. 32 for future MVP quarterback Lamar Jackson was a massive steal, and the Ravens altered their identity to accommodate for his unique talent. In a 2018 redraft, Jackson would go no lower than No. 2 overall…The order of the Ravens’ picks can be debated since they selected Hayden Hurst over Jackson and Mark Andrews, two offensive stalwarts. But in total, Baltimore walked away with two All-Pros in Jackson and Andrews, a three-time Pro Bowl tackle in Orlando Brown, rotational defenders in Anthony Averett and DeShon Elliott, a blocking tight end in Hurst and a three-year starting center in Bradley Bozeman.”
