2018 NFL Draft 1st round: A game-used jersey worn by Lamar Jackson.

A big topic of debate in the 2018 NFL Draft was whether Lamar Jackson’s tremendous running and scrambling abilities from the University of Louisville would translate in the NFL. The Baltimore Ravens were convinced and traded a second-round pick to the Philadelphia Eagles, moving them back into the first round of the NFL Draft to select Jackson 32nd overall. The Ravens were proven right when Jackson was named a starter in Week 11 of his rookie season and went on to rally the team to the NFL Playoffs. In 2019 he lead the Ravens to an NFL best 14-2 record and was named league MVP. Pictured is jersey Jackson wore on Nov. 10, 2019, against the Cincinnati Bengals when he became only the second QB in NFL history to achieve two perfect passer rating games in the same season. In the game, Jackson also executed his famous “spin move” on a 47-yard touchdown run. 

With the Hall’s social media partner Bleacher Report, Adam Lefkoe and three Hall of Famers sat down with top 2020 NFL Draft Picks at the Super Bowl.  Auburn’s projected top ten pick, Defensive Tackle Derrick Brown, sat down with Kevin Greene. And Alabama’s Cornerback Trevon Diggs sat down with Tim Brown.

Wisconsin’s Jonathan Taylor finished his college career as the No. 6 all-time rusher in the NCAA and the first player in history to rush for more than 6,000 yards in any three years. His workout with Terrell Davis. Here is a sneak preview.

It all starts today at 11 am, at the Pro Football Hall of Fame 2020 NFL Draft coverage.
