Budding journalists are taught that at the heart of every news story are six questions to be answered: Who, What, Where, When, Why and How.
The Ravens’ drafting of quarterback Lamar Jackson last Thursday answers four of those six, the who, the what, the when and the where pretty easily.
The how of Jackson’s selection is fairly interesting. The Ravens came into the draft possessing the 16th overall pick in the first round.
While there were rumors that the team would use that pick to take Jackson, general manager Ozzie Newsome and his crew kept their intentions close to the vest.
