Lamar Jackson Declares For NFL Draft

After three years the Louisville, quarterback Lamar Jackson has declared for the NFL draft. Jackson, who won the Heisman trophy in 2016, made his decision official on a statement he released on Twitter where he thanked everyone that support him to get to this moment.

During his 2016 Heisman campaign, Jackson totaled 3,543 passing yards, 30 touchdowns and only nine interceptions. Jackson also added 1,571 rushing yards and 21 rushing touchdowns. He had very similar stats in 2017, throwing 3660 passing yards, 27 touchdowns and 10 interceptions along with 1,571 rushing yards and 18 rushing touchdowns.

It is likely that Jackson will go very high in the NFL draft as many of the teams holding the top picks are in desperate need of a quarterback. Despite his success in college, many NFL scouts are already counting him out and saying that UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen and USC quarterback Sam Darnold have the edge over him.

Jackson is a polarizing talent, there is simply no other player in this year’s draft that has his skill set. Yet, he is still being doubted by NFL scouts and some have even went as far to say that he will need to change his position once he gets to the league.

While Jackson dropped out of the limelight this year, it was not because of his inability as a quarterback, but more so because of Louisville’s 8-5 record.
