Future Watch: Lamar Jackson Rookie Football Cards, Ravens

Future Watch: Lamar Jackson Rookie Football Cards, RavensFuture Watch: Lamar Jackson Rookie Football Cards, RavensLamar Jackson was selected by the Baltimore Ravens with the 32nd overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. At 6-3, 215 pounds he has the kind of size teams usually spend higher draft picks on. But he slipped and now he has a chance to prove everybody wrong.

Jackson was a star in high school. He attended the University of Louisville. As a freshman he started in 8 of the 12 games he played in. He had 12 touchdowns, eight interceptions and an MVP award from the Music City Bowl.

In his sophomore season he had 3,543 yards passing, with 30 touchdowns and only 9 interceptions. He had 21 rushing touchdowns as well. That season he won the Walter Camp Award for player of the year and the Maxwell Award for being the best all-around player in college football. A few weeks later he won the Heisman Trophy.

His junior season was tremendous as well. He threw for 3,660 yards with 27 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He added 18 rushing touchdowns as well. He was named a Heisman Finalist once again but this time he didn’t win the award. He did make himself available for the NFL Draft.

At the NFL combine the talented quarterback had to tell the world he wasn’t going to be anything but a quarterback. Apparently, the message wasn’t received. This could be the reason a lot of teams looking for help at that position passed on him.

Here’s a look at him throwing at OTA’s:

You can find rookie cards of him in Score, Donruss Elite Football, and Contenders to name a few.

Joe Flacco and RG III are the current quarterbacks he has to pass on the depth chart. He may just need a chance to prove himself so now he waits for an opportunity and will carry a clipboard until that day comes.
