  • Ravens full 2018 NFL draft picks

The Eagles got the second-round pick from the Baltimore Ravens and could use it to land a running back, offensive lineman, pass rusher or cornerback. Here are three reasons executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman outlined when he met with the media Thursday night.

All of them say they're the best of the bunch except for USC's Sam Darnold, who suggests: "That's for other people to decide".

"We think he's a unique talent", DeCosta said. While Rosen expressed his anger in not getting picked until No. 10, Jackson was more diplomatic. "Because he's sitting there with two five-year contracts, with two guys that should start". The crowd at AT&T Stadium wouldn't stop booing Goodell, who, surrounded by Dallas icons Roger Staubach, Troy Aikman and Jason Witten, playfully asked the people why they were booing the Cowboys. Most importantly, it netted them an additional pick in 2019.

Gronkowski tells Belichick he's playing this year
Gronkowski announced via his Instagram account Tuesday that he'll play in 2018, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports. Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski says he is returning for his ninth National Football League season.

After saying there was "nothing" he would've done differently to help his draft stock, the 2016 Heisman Trophy victor was asked what he would bring to the Ravens. Fittingly, Mayfield didn't attend the draft.

He ranked first among draft-eligible tight ends in drop rate in 2017 (0.0).

And it's one of the best landing spots the Louisville quarterback could have imagined.

The Bills moved up slightly with another first-rounder to get linebacker Tremaine Edmunds.

And the Eagles shipped their pick to the Ravens. "At the end of the day, a second-round pick is a second-round pick".

However, Carr will be paying attention to the draft, and quarterbacks in particular, beyond what the Raiders do with their 11 scheduled picks.

Unruly passenger Tased on American Airlines fight
According to the arrest report, Garcia continued to resist efforts to move him from the aircraft to a police vehicle. A man was hit with a Taser on an American Airlines flight after he allegedly fondled a female passenger.

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. Hiestand hails from Radnor High.
