It doesn’t matter which draft analysts Authentic Eric Thames Jersey try to tell you otherwise. The idea that Lamar Jackson should convert to wide receiver is far and away the worst take so far about the 2018 NFL Draft. But it’s far from the only bad one floating around.
Sorry, that came out wrong. Let me try again: The main issue some analysts seem to have with Jackson is that he’s black.
Jackson doesn’t fit what some believe a great NFL quarterback should look like: the statue who sits in the pocket. Throughout history, that player has often been white.
Lamar Jackson is a quarterback. He will be drafted as a quarterback by a team that expects him to play quarterback. The end.

Nobody gets it right every time. Draft analysis isn’t easy. There’s a big learning curve for players making the transition from college to the pros. It’s impossible to anticipate with 100 percent accuracy how a player will pan out. But that’s not going to slow down the takes, and it won’t keep us from having a little fun with them, either.
If you look at the winners of the ESPYS Breakthrough Athlete of the Year award from 2012 on (Jeremy Lin, Colin Kaepernick, Richard Sherman, Mo’ne Davis, Jake Arrieta, Dak Prescott), you’ll see that the thread is a player who separated himself or herself among a crowded field and leveraged a star-making season into marketing success. I’d love to see that replicated in the NHL.
Price had surgery after tearing his pectoral bench pressing at the combine, but is expected to be ready for training camp. The Vikings could have a new quarterback next season, as they let Case Keenum hit free agency, along with Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Bradford (hello, Kirk Cousins?). A smart move would be helping keep whoever is back there upright.

In Kadar’s mock, he has the Vikings going with UTEP guard Will Hernandez, who (like previously mentioned players) had a strong combine. Prior to Price’s pec injury at the combine, Kadar had him going No. 29 to the Jaguars.
