Despite shaky English, Jackson selected by Baltimore in 1st round of NFL draft

Lamar Jackson must improve communication skills.

Jackson must fix public speaking.

Mass Appeal Wire Reports

BALTIMORE — Everybody knows Heisman trophy winner Lamar Jackson doesn’t articulate well and his English is borderline atrocious. But he’s arguably the most physically-gifted quarterback selected in the 2018 NFL Draft. “I see him as a faster, potentially better, Michael Vick,” said a scout who believes Jackson’s upside is significantly higher than any other quarterback taken in the draft. Ok, if that’s true, what’s the logic behind four quarterbacks being selected ahead of him?

On Thursday (April 26, 2108), Jackson was nabbed by the Baltimore Ravens with the 32nd overall pick. However, several NFL insiders and football pundits believe he’ll serve a better purpose as a wide receiver or runningback mainly because of his inability to effectively communicate with fans and media.

For example… after shaking hands with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, football analyst Deion Sanders asked Jackson a series of nationally televised questions that were met with a plethora of incoherent answers. To make a long story short, Jackson replied to each inquiry with either a “Yessir” or “It’s on.”

That’s apparently the magnitude of his vocabulary.

Seriously, I couldn’t tell if Jackson was uncouth or merely stoned.

Hell, for a minute, I thought I was watching “Roots.”

Keep in mind, the quarterback is typically viewed as being the proverbial face of an NFL franchise which requires elevating public perception through ample promotions in conjunction with hosting weekly confabulation conclaves with the press.

With that being the case, should the Ravens ask Jackson to become open to switching positions to eschew the media spotlight? Or, should they hire a Public Relations expert to teach him the art of public speaking? Also, should parents spend more time reading to their children while coercing them to enunciate proper English?

  1. Lamar is going to become the best QB in the draft and there’s no doubt about it. Congratulations Lamar, now go show them who’s the best.

  2. Rooting for this young man. He overcame so much to be where he is today. He deserves credit, not criticism.

  3. I honestly believe he will win three or more SuperBowls one day 💯💯💯🚀🚀🚀🚀

  4. Congrats to Lamar Jackson 💯💯✊🏾

  5. Why is it that a black man always being told that he needs to switch from quarterback

  6. Didn’t Jackson win the Heisman Trophy a couple of years ago?? Another Black QB that the NFL wants to change to another position?? NFL SUCKS!!!

  7. can’t stand this Lamar Jackson slander smh! Dude was the best QB in college football past two years better than the recent heisman winner too yeah I said it, give Lamar Jackson some respect!

  8. NFL team owners says that, “Lamar Jackson doesn’t look or speak well enough to be the face of the team”. Therefore the NFL team owner’s will not draft him first round. Lamar don’t own the team. Lamar is himself as a Black man first, that’s looking for a chance to play in the NFL. Deion Sanders said it best. ” I take care of the business in front of me”. Lamar will be fine in the NFL. He’s from South Florida. Where we play football for fun. Making it to the NFL is just icing on the cake. Lamar bruh! Go show them NFL owner’s how much Heart you have. #Blackexcellence

  9. Can’t wait till Lamar Jackson shits in everybody’s mouth…

  10. Great article! He wasnt asked to switch positions because he’s black. It has everything to do with his speech and how he represents an NFL franchise. Lots of black QBs are intelligent — Russell Wilson is one of the smartest QBs in the league. It has nothing to do with race.

  11. They should ask him to keep his mouth shut and nod during press conferences.

  12. With his credentials, if he was white, the consideration of him playing other than QB is racist.

  13. I heard him speak and thought to myself “how could any team make this guy the face of the franchise???”

    Lamar seems like a nice guy, but he is not quarterback material

  14. Aaron Humphrey

    13 wonderlic, 49 mph passes, lack of anticipation, and a lack of accuracy. It’s not offensive to want to see what he can do as a WR.

  15. Ronald McDonald

    Stop listening to hip hop and start reading a book, geez

  16. Didn’t Jackson win the Heisman Trophy a couple of years ago?? Another Black QB that the NFL wants to change to another position?? NFL SUCKS!!!

  17. Football Freddy

  18. doesnt matter if he can speak good english as long as he kicks ass on the football field
