The 2018 quarterback class has been the most discussed in recent memory, so where did these QB’s go in the first round?
It all started with Baker Mayfield at No. 1 to the Browns.
That’s when things got confusing, but we will make it a little easier for you.
Here is where every single quarterback went in the first round Thursday.
5. Lamar Jackson, Louisville, No. 32 overall, Ravens: Lamar Jackson was the most electifying player in college football each of the last two years and now he is heading to Baltimore. Jackson threw for 9,043 yards and 69 touchdowns while rushing for 4,132 yards and 50 touchdowns in his college career. His selection marked just the third time in the history of the NFL Draft that five quarterbacks were taken in the first round.
Still available: Mason Rudolph, Oklahoma State.
Kaepernick, who hasn’t played since 2016, delivered an acceptance speech calling police killings of African Americans and Latinos in the United States “lawful lynchings.”
“Racialized oppression and dehumanization is woven into the very fabric of our nation — the effects of which can be seen in the lawful lynching of black and brown people by the police, and the mass incarceration of black and brown lives in the prison industrial complex,” Kaepernick said Saturday (via the Associated Press).
“How can you stand for the national anthem of a nation that preaches and propagates, ‘freedom and justice for all,’ that is so unjust to so many of the people living there?”
Kaepernick vowed to donate $1 million to charities to help raise awareness, and he reached more than 30 organizations supporting various causes. The AP notes that the NFL also agreed to commit $90 million over the next seven years to social justice causes in response to the protests.
