2018 NFL Draft: Five takeaways from Lamar Jackson’s pro day


The NFL’s attention shifted to Louisville on Thursday, with Lamar Jackson getting his chance to shine in the pro-day spotlight.

I thought the 2016 Heisman Trophy winner had a solid, although unspectacular, performance.

Here are my takeaways from his workout.


1) I think Jackson’s draft stock is unchanged coming out of the pro day. I don’t think he did anything to help or hurt himself. I’ve consistently said I expect him to be selected between picks 25 and 35. I feel the same way after his workout.

2. The Jaguars, Steelers, Saints are the team fits I hear most frequently for Jackson. Those all make sense and could be good landing spots for him, but the perfect coach for Jackson is the Chiefs’ Andy Reid, given his demonstrated ability to cater his offense to the strengths of his QB, including a dual-threat like Michael Vick, the player that Jackson is often compared to. Reid has his QB in Patrick Mahomes, though, so I’m not expecting Jackson to end up with the Chiefs, who don’t have a pick until late in Round 2 after trading their 2018 first-rounder to go up
