Projecting the NFL Draft Class: Lamar Jackson

Projecting the NFL Draft Class: Lamar Jackson

And that's this week, here, at the NFL Scouting Combine.

UCLA's Josh Rosen and Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield went with the second group Saturday.

The former USC QB, unlike UCLA's Josh Rosen and Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield, who did everything in Indianapolis, chose to watch in his earlier position group instead of proving why he should be the consensus No. 1 QB and No. 1 overall pick in April. "If a team happens to fall in love with me and they take me No. 1 in the draft or they take me anywhere I'd be happy". It might be a rough relationship at the beginning because they kinda see the dynamic, but I'm going to do everything I can to help the team win. "They all the potential to develop into very productive quarterbacks at the next level". They're gonna try to guide you in the right direction. These quotes could have just as easily applied to Jay Cutler, whose personality also did not fit the mold of an National Football League quarterback.

That's the sort of self-assurance Mayfield carried himself with throughout his senior season as the former walk-on led the Sooners into the College Football Playoff.

Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott often talks about being "playoff caliber" and wanting players who have the right "DNA" for the Bills. Oh, and that one dissenter on Darnold going first? "Not the same as college". And guys are going, 'Well, if there aren't 32 franchise guys, maybe we need to look at this a little bit differently.' And how does that affect this draft class.?

Still, the guys with the hardware might have to take a backseat to a pair of California kids. But Saturday Allen stood out over UCLA's Josh Rosen, and USC's Sam Darnold didn't throw. Injuries such as tears in soft tissue, lacerations and concussions, which is what Rosen sustained the last two seasons, are caused and not an inherant issue.

No player is ideal though, and Rosen has a few blemishes.

"I thought I did a good job at quarterback, I thought I did", Jackson said with a chuckle Friday while dismissing the notion he would run routes with receivers Saturday at Lucas Oil Stadium or even operate the wildcat as a pro. "I think we're all competitors, and I think every quarterback should have the same exact belief that I do".

In between there is the super-smart and confident Josh Rosen, the electric Lamar Jackson and the seemingly always composed Josh Allen.

"The way I'm able to get my guys around me to play", Mayfield said in referencing one of his strengths as a quarterback. Only Wyoming gave him a shot.

At this time a year ago, scouts were gaga over Darnold after he threw 31 touchdown passes and was intercepted just nine times.

"All of these quarterbacks are a work in progress", Quinn said. "Everybody does things well in their own aspect and we're all different". Penn State running back Saquon Barkley has also made it clear that he'd love to play in the same Giants offense with Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr.

Sure, evaluating a QB for a draft goes well beyond one afternoon in Indy.

The other player to match or exceed those totals was tight end Vernon Davis in 2006. "That goes for anyone taking me in any position, honestly".

New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels infamously pulled out a verbal agreement to become the Colts head coach earlier this month.
