In-Depth Breakdown of Lamar Jackson by Eliot Crist

Doesn’t mean he’s a better QB prospect.

 

 

That's true.  He might not wind up being better.  But Watson had many of the same issues said about him last draft season.  Accuracy down the field, reading defenses, etc.  my point is from a physical standpoint Jackson has Watson beat.  And Watson was and is very good.

Petrino is exactly where he belongs as a CFB coach. 

 

Your'e such a frickin' HATER 26, I swear.... The guy would have done great things for ATL had the Vick implosion not occurred... CFB teams improved practically everywhere he went...

 

The man is an offensive genius at the collegiate level.

Literally only because the WRs couldn't catch to save their lives this year. If you adjust for drops, Lamar's completion percentage was above Darnold and within 1% of Rosen and Rudolph.

Hater?  You're making my points better than I ever could.  I give him great credit.

Is that adjusting for Rosen's dropped passes too? Pretty sure 1 out of every 9 passes Rosen threw was dropped.

Most entertaining set of QB highlights you will watch this year and its only one season

 

Absolutely love his game. That thread the needle in the end zone down the seam was money.

He's just too inaccurate and inconsistent to inspire confidence. That said, I would be fine if they took him at 22. I would also be fine with Rudolph, if they improved the O-line.

Vick was definitely faster, but there isn't a chance in hell that Lamar is anywhere near a 4.78 lol. I don't understand how someone that lives in the area and has watched him for 2 years can possibly think he's significantly slower than the likes of Andrew Luck, Connor Shaw, and Derek Carr.

 

Yeah, he will be between 4.3-4.4 most likely

OMG... Avoid this possibility at all costs. After watching him the past two years ( I live in the Louisville area) we would be making yet another big mistake. He'll bring some running ability but he's slower than Taylor. Has a published college time of 4.78. He's not like Taylor in one area though, he has no problem turning the ball over. Tebow / Andre Ware II.

 

This post tells me you have never even watched him play, you watch any game he has played in his entire career, and then tell me he runs a 4.78. Some people will believe anything they read.

Exactly.

There's no way he runs higher than 4.4

Petrino needs the right opportunity to show how good of an offensive mind he can be at the pro level... Jackson is probably the most talent Petrino''s ever had in a CFB player, and Petrino was able to harness, and focus that talent... After years of watching Tyrod regress, I wouldn't trust any member of this offensive staff with a young QB... If it were possible, -and it isn't, I would want to see Lojack develop under someone who already knows how to maximize his potential.

I doubt that Comp % was ever the big picture... Petrino's trying to win games... He know's Jackson's limitations, and strengths too well... I think that, given those,  he got the best out of him.

That’s a cloudy conclusion.

 

Throwing a ball high on an easy bubble screen which a receiver can’t hold on to might be a “drop” but it’s because the QB just isn’t accurate.

 

Blaming drops is what people do when they really have nothing else to offer.

It is my opinion that when you hear fans blast a prospect because he has the ability to run that they are just simply traumatized by the years of Tyrod Taylor

 

Newsflash......just because a qb can run the ball does not mean that he automatically cannot PASS the ball.

There is one comparison for Jackson, and no it's not because he's black, and that person is Michael Vick.  The play a lot alike except in my opinion, Vick was a more accurate passer.  I know Jackson is a polarizing prospect, I fall on side of being totally against the Bills drafting him.

You're right.  He has a stronger arm, is faster and more elusive when he runs.

 

He doesn't have near the accuracy, pocket presence, or passing progression ability. Watson should have been the first overall pick last year.
