With surprising selections and several trades throughout the night, day one certainly lived up to the hype. The Cleveland Browns were the only AFC North team without a first-round selection after trading theirs (No. 17) to the New York Giants as part of the deal for Odell Beckham Jr. The other three teams - Ravens, Steelers, Bengals - entered the night with picks under their belt and were in good positions to address roster needs.They did just that, but how good was the value of each pick? Take a look below for some analysis and stay tuned for more pick-by-pick grades to come on day two and three of the draft.Pittsburgh SteelersSelection: Devin Bush, LB (Michigan) The Steelers entered the night holding the 20th overall pick, but traded with the Denver Broncos to jump up 10 spots. In addition to swapping first-round picks, the Steelers gave up their second-round pick in this year’s draft (No. 52) and a third-round pick in 2020. Pittsburgh clearly wanted Devin Bush and weren’t confident he’d fall to them. Bush is the second-best linebacker prospect in this class behind Devin White. While undersized, Bush compensates for great speed and coverage ability. He may be overpowered at times but Bush is good at pursuing ball-carriers and can get to the quarterback. It’s hard to fault Pittsburgh for getting their guy and filling a position of need. The only thing keeping this grade from being higher is the capital they had to give up in order to do so. Grade: BCincinnati Bengals Selection: Jonah Williams, OT (Alabama) With both Dwayne Haskins and Drew Lock on the board, many, including myself, thought the Bengals might take a quarterback with the 11th pick in the first round. However, they opted to go the safe route and take Jonah Williams, whom many consider to be the best offensive tackle in the draft. Williams is versatile but figures to slot in as the Bengals left tackle next season and for the foreseeable future. This pick all but ensures Cincinnati will part ways with Cordy Glenn and/or Bobby Hart. What he lacks in arm length Williams makes up for with grit, technique, and consistency. The addition of Williams is both a short-term upgrade and carries long-term implications. Hard not to like this move by the Bengals. Grade: ABaltimore Ravens Selection: Marquise Brown, WR (Oklahoma) Rather than making their pick at #22, the Ravens, in what should have come as no surprise, traded back three spots with the Philadelphia Eagles. At #25, the Ravens still had several offensive line options to choose from, a top pass-rusher in Montez Sweat Patrick Onwuasor Jersey 2019 , and all of the top receivers still on the board. They opted to address the latter, taking Marquise “Hollywood” Brown out of Oklahoma. The cousin of former division rival Antonio Brown, Marquise is an electric playmaker with blazing speed. He’s adept as beating press coverage and creating separation, two qualities the Ravens currently lack. He’s a bit undersized and is currently recovering from a Lisfranc fracture, but Brown’s upside is high and his skill set figures to immediately translate to the NFL. Acquiring additional picks and still getting the guy they wanted - solid night for Eric DeCosta and company. Grade: A- Since trading back into the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft to select quarterback Lamar Jackson, the Baltimore Ravens have made a couple of things clear — Joe Flacco is still the starting quarterback, but they also want to utilize Jackson during his rookie season. Although offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg reiterated during Jackson’s introductory press conference that he was a quarterback, the Ravens have lined Jackson up in different spots to show defenses exotic looks. Not all of Jackson’s snaps have been positive, but he has helped give Baltimore’s offense something they rarely had — unpredictability. Against the Broncos in Week 3, Baltimore used trickery with Lamar Jackson. He initially lined up in the slot and then motioned behind Flacco, which served as a decoy. The mere presence of Jackson on the field forced four defenders to take at least one step to his side of the field allowing the offensive line and tight ends to get leverage when blocking down the field for Alex Collins en route to the end zone. The NFL has shown throughout its history that it is a copycat league. Teams will mimic, or even steal, concepts, plays, and ideas from other teams. Todd Haley, The Browns’ offensive coordinator, admitted that he stole the Eagles’ famous ‘Philly Special’ play. With that in mind, the New Orleans Saints also have an athletic backup quarterback in Taysom Hill. Despite going undrafted in the 2017 NFL Draft, Hill ended up with the Saints after spending his first NFL preseason with the Green Bay Packers. Used primarily as a running quarterback at BYU, Hill was not expected to make a smooth transition to the NFL. Hill stands at 6-foot-2, 225 pounds, which is similar to Jackson, who measured at 6-foot-2 and 216 pounds at the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine. Jackson only participated in the on-field throwing drills, but he did state during his introductory press conference he ran a 4.34 40-yard dash ‘with turf toe.’ Hill ran a 4.44 40-yard dash at his pro-day at BYU. Jackson is without a doubt the better quarterback and athlete. However Daylon Mack Baltimore Ravens Jersey , they both have similar skillsets, and New Orleans has found creative ways to utilize Hill in two-quarterback sets, which could serve as a blueprint for the Ravens.Although this play only went for two yards, it had the potential to be much more. If the tight end could secure the play side, Hill would have had a lane upfield to run and gain at least five yards. The Ravens could run end-arounds with Lamar Jackson, and the creativity can only build from there.The Giants’ defensive end collapsed to the inside towards Alvin Kamara, but Hill kept it and ran to the outside. By showing New York’s defense plays of Hill handing the ball off, they were able to capitalize on the defense’s flaw of overcommitting to Kamara. It also works conversely as Hill taking the snap forced the defense to respect his running ability, which opened up a lane for New Orleans running backs.The clips above are of the Saints running a read-option, which the Ravens have done before with Jackson. The difference between Baltimore’s read-option and New Orleans’ play is what transpired prior. New Orleans gave defenses multiple looks of Hill and this exact read option. Specifically talking about the last clip, the Saints built off of their previous plays, and the Falcons defense collapsed to stop the running back as they thought Hill was merely handing the ball off as he did before. However, the defensive end held his ground and committed to the outside as most of the read-options the Saints showed prior were outside concepts. On this play, Hill elected to take the inside as he picked up 35 yards.Baltimore has run read-options and variations of these running plays. It is not exactly reinventing the wheel, but the distinct difference is how New Orleans sets it up. The Saints change the personnel and formations up to confuse defenses. They also run decoy plays to disguise different looks to create opportunities for other players via Hill. The real learning, or stealing, can begin with the other ways the Saints utilize Hill. This was a creative fake screen New Orleans ran in the red zone, and it nearly went for a touchdown. If Terron Armstead did not overcommit to help Max Unger, he would have likely been able to reach the linebacker, which would have given Hill space to run and one man to beat en route to the end zone. The Saints got the look they werelikely hoping for, but poor blocking and execution ruined this play. Baltimore could run a similar fake screen concept with Javorius Allen or Alex Collins and throw it to Jackson in space.Alvin Kamara dropped what could have been one of the easiest touchdowns of his entire career. However, the play design from New Orleans was beautiful. Drew Brees was on the far side, and he drew a cornerback to cover him. Once the ball is snapped, Hill faked a handoff to Michael Thomas White Daylon Mack Jersey , rolled out to his right and threw an accurate touch pass to Kamara. This play design was perfect as it drew Donte Deayon closer to the line of scrimmage as he thought it was a run. New Orleans showed this look to the Giants in a couple of different ways in the first half, which set this play up for success.Jackson has attempted five passes in the regular season, but four of them came in garbage time against the Buffalo Bills in Week 1. The one pass he has thrown happened against the Browns. However, the difference was that the Ravens failed to set it up for success, and the Cleveland defense defended it well. The secondary barely bit on the fake and dropped into coverage to easily force an incompletion.Baltimore has also faked passes to Jackson, similar to the screen pass the Saints ran. This play worked well, but Jackson’s presence had little to do with it. The Steelers barely covered Jackson, and if Flacco had thrown him the ball, Jackson might have picked up 20+ yards.Designed quarterback runs are nothing new to the NFL, but the subtle difference between the first two plays by the Saints and the last three run by Baltimore are the concept. The Ravens tend to run power concepts with Jackson, while New Orleans run outside running concepts.Power concepts with Jackson have not been extremely successful. These concepts rely more on the offensive line to clear a hole, and it puts Jackson in a smaller, more condensed area. While the outside running concepts obviously also rely on the offensive line to clear a hole, therefore allowing the runner to have multiple cutback lanes, ultimately giving them more open space to operate. In addition, the outside running concepts allow Hill’s athleticism to transcend on the field, while the power concepts may limit Jackson’s athleticism.Final thoughtsThe new ‘gimmick’ of utilizing athletic backup quarterbacks in certain situations, specifically in the red zone, may not last too much longer, but if the Ravens have Lamar Jackson and want to use him, they should find more creative ways to do so. The Saints have shown on tape that it is possible to have success in these concepts, but it requires creativity and proper game planning.
