Scouting Report: Lamar Jackson
School: Louisville Position: Quarterback Class: Junior Height: 6-3 Weight: 215 lbs Projected Draft Round: 1-3
After winning the Heisman, the overall NFL prospects of Lamar Jackson haven’t changed much. He is an exceptional runner and excels in his dynamic scheme at Louisville, but needed to make major leaps to be an early round quarterback prospect. It is difficult to scout him in Louisville’s system, but, as it has been said, “seems like more of a thrower than a passer.” An undeniably gifted athlete, he is going to proceed through the process as a quarterback, and will have to approach each team that asks him about converting to wide receiver on a case by case basis.
