Lamar Jackson said Thursday night he's looking forward to working with fellow Baltimore Ravens quarterbacks Joe Flacco and Robert Griffin III after getting selected with the 32nd overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.
TMZ Sports provided comments from Jackson as he prepared to celebrate with family and friends.
"A lot to learn from [Griffin]. Him and Joe Flacco," he said.
Jackson and Griffin will likely end up competing for the backup role behind Flacco during the Louisville product's rookie season.
Both are Heisman Trophy winners, with RG3 taking home college football's top individual honor with Baylor in 2011. Jackson was the award's 2016 recipient.

Meanwhile, Flacco was named the Super Bowl XLVII MVP after leading Baltimore to a 34-31 championship triumph in 2013. So there's a lot of coveted hardware in the quarterback room.
Jackson was also asked by TMZ Sports whether he'd reconsider his hardline stance about not changing positions, but he remained firm.
"No, I'm strictly a quarterback," he said.
Going to the Ravens should give him as much time as he needs to continue his development without the pressure to start right away. Learning from Flacco and Griffin will help the process.
