Despite his phenomenal college career, former Louisville quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson is one of the most polarizing NFL Draft prospects to come along in a while.
Bleacher Report NFL Draft analyst Matt Miller is high on Jackson, but is quick to point out that the system he lands in will be crucial. Take a look:
If drafted into the right system (i.e. someone that'll use his strengths), Lamar Jackson will have the biggest Day 1 impact of any QB in this class. I want him in an Andy Reid/Doug Pederson/Matt Nagy offense so badly. Maybe Minnesota with DeFilippo? Would be exciting

All of those coaches are known for grooming mobile quarterbacks, and running is the most lethal part of Jackson’s game. With uncertainty surrounding Case Keenum and former Cardinal Teddy Bridgewater, Minnesota could be a fit for Jackson.
He’ll serve as an interesting NFL Draft case study in the coming years. Jackson will likely be selected after Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Josh Rosen and Baker Mayfield, but he could wind up having the best career of them all.
