Jackson is entering his second season after taking over the starting job from Joe Flacco last season and helping lead the Ravens to their first AFC North title since 2012 and first playoff appearance since 2014.

Savage, who was named second-team All-Big Ten as a senior at Maryland, was one of the fastest risers in the draft, with the Packers trading up to No. 21 overall to select him.
