Former Louisville QB Lamar Jackson has been placed under a microscope after announcing that he was entering the NFL Draft, with many questions regarding his arm and accuracy. There have even been a few who thought that Jackson would be better suited as an wide receiver, perhaps most notably former Colts GM Bill Polian.
Polian is one of a few NFL minds that believe that Jackson can't succeed at QB in the NFL. An anonymous NFL offensive coordinator told NFL.com reporter Tom Pellissero:
"He's an awesome athlete. He will not be able to play (quarterback) in this league, mark my words," an offensive coordinator said. "When he throws, he hopes."
Jackson has responded to the comments:
