In other words, the Ravens are moving up 25 spots in the third round. General manager Ozzie Newsome now has four of the draft's top 78 picks -- 16, 47, 74 and 78.
A second-round choice in 2014, Jernigan started 15 of 16 games last season, tallying five sacks while leading the defensive line in hurries.
"Timmy has been a terrific player for us for three seasons," Newsome explained in a statement released by the team. "This will allow our young group of defensive linemen an opportunity to compete and play."
From the Eagles' perspective, they sacrificed 25 spots in the draft for a one-year audition with a talented underachiever at a position of need. It's likely no coincidence that vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas was in Baltimore's front office when Jernigan was drafted out of Florida State.
This is a worthwhile gamble at a discount rate.
