Lamar Jackson at #24: Is it possible?

Lamar Jackson at #24: Is it possible?

  1. 1. Is it possible?

    • No, he'll be off the board
      9
    • Possible, but not necessarily our primary need right now
      40
    • Possible, and a good pick because we need someone to push Cam (and maybe start in 2019 or late 2018)
      2

You should get your sockpuppet uncfan888 to come agree with you and then stalk my son some more.

But I will not let this thread be dominated by the loudest, most uncivil voices.

I don’t think this pick makes much sense at the moment. A backup for Cam should be taken in later rounds and this team has way more important holes to fill than a backup. Wr, S, or DE should be the pick at 24.

I would like to see what he could do at receiver but the dude really seems like he want's to play qb and we have other needs at 24

I do not understand the WR talk at all. Why convert a Heisman QB to WR in a league where playing WR is getting harder and playing QB is getting easier? Madness, IMO.

I need some more info on this. That's a very bold statement. I feel like these work hand in hand. A good WR makes a QB's jobs easier (See Foles) and a good QB makes a WR's job easier (See every patriot WR and Jimmy G. with 49ers).

 

We are in a league that is full of bubble screens, quick hits, and drags. Not sure how that makes it more difficult on the WR's.

No reason at all to make this move unless the plan is to demolish the roster and start rebuilding. We need a backup QB but not a potential replacement QB. I suspect Jackson will end up as a top 15 pick because so many teams are hungry for QB's this year. 

Also, I think the talk of him moving to WR is pretty goofy. If people question Jackson's ability to be an NFL QB for the reasons that they do, I do not understand why they go ga-ga over Darnold or Allen. None of those three is a surefire HR as a QB prospect in the NFL.

QB is the biggest roll of the dice in the game.  The only way you spend a first round pick on a QB is if you don't already have one.  We have one. 

I don't disagree that we should always be alert for the opportunity to pick up a QB later in the draft, but he first couple rounds should bring us players who will play for us next season.

"Look at me, I'm not a racist because I'm suggesting something ridiculous that I know will never happen like drafting Lamar Jackson in the 1st round!"
