In exchange, Baltimore received Minnesota's second-round pick (No. 35 overall) and a fourth-round selection (No. 98 overall).
"A couple of teams called us, and we had several players that we liked that are still available for us (Friday)," Newsome said. "To be able to pick up that 98th pick from Minnesota, we think is going to be another good player. Or we can take that pick and use it to move into the second or third (round) to go get another player."
Another playoff team that traded out of the first round entirely Thursday night was the Denver Broncos. The team owned the 25th overall selection when the draft began and traded down twice, leaving it without a first-rounder for the first time since 2005.
