NFL Scout Makes Tantalizing Lamar Jackson Comparison, Ranks QB No. 2 Overall

NFL Scout Makes Tantalizing Lamar Jackson Comparison, Ranks QB No. 2 Overall

University of SC junior tight end Hayden Hurst was selected by the Baltimore Ravens with the 25th pick in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft. The Ravens get the Eagles No. 32, which was used to take Jackson, and the Eagles' 4th round pick at No. 132.

The 2016 Heisman victor rewrote the U of L record book while rocking the Cardinal bird on his helmet.

Jackson, the 2016 Heisman Trophy victor, became the the only player in FBS history to rush for at least 1,500 yards and pass for at least 3,500 yards in a season.

Jackson declared for the draft in January, foregoing his senior season.

It looked as it Jackson would have to wait until day two to hear his name called, but the Ravens traded two second-rounders - one in 2019 - and a fourth-rounder to the Super Bowl-champion Philadelphia Eagles to make Jackson their quarterback of the future.




Jackson will join quarterbacks Joe Flacco and Robert Griffin III.

ALAMEDA, Calif. - Derek Carr knows what it is like to feel underappreciated as the National Football League draft approaches.

Jackson nearly sat in the green room the entire first round without hearing his name called. After this season, Flacco has no more guaranteed money on his contract. First-round picks have a fifth-year option on their rookie deals. The UCLA quarterback was the first true freshman to start for the Bruins and considered by many as the best pure passer in the draft. Whatever the approach, it appears the team does have legit interest in him.

"Absolutely", Jackson said. "There is a chip on my shoulder". And if those quarterbacks go in the top 10 fairly quickly, then there's nobody that I think they can race up to get because they've got to just sit there and say, 'This isn't our time to get the quarterback.' They've got to find somebody else to come in and develop. "He's a playmaker. We do some analytics, and when the ball is in his hands, there hasn't been a better playmaker really in the last few years coming out".

"I've been talking about this Lamar Jackson thing for a while now", Mayock said. "Ideally if Lamar Jackson slipped I could see them making that move, but I don't think he will".
