In The Herd Joel Klatt explains why he would take Lamar Jackson

first_imgWith only  week until the NFL Draft, the disinformation from NFL teams and over analysis prospect has reached peak silly season. Among the biggest questions heading into the draft is which quarterback the Browns will take with the first pick.According to a number of reports, Wyoming’s Josh Allen is firmly in the mix to go #1, but today in The Herd, FS1 College Football Analyst Joel Klatt told Colin that he doesn’t see any valid argument based on his evaluation to take Allen over Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield, or Josh Rosen.Klatt added that he would take Louisville’s Lamar Jackson over Allen because at least he regularly dominated his competition. When he watched Allen’s tape, he never saw a single game where Allen was the dominant player, in addition to his serious accuracy issues and inability to anticipate throws.Allen is the most polarizing boom or bust prospect in the draft, and Klatt is calling bust. Watch the Klattster explain why the honorable mention quarterback in the Mountain West has no business going #1.“If I was in the room, I would take Lamar Jackson before Josh Allen. Josh Allen has the biggest bust factor of any of these quarterbacks.” — @joelklatt— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) April 19, 2018last_img read more
