Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has been argued as among the finest at his position since being drafted by the team in 2018. His ability each as a passer and a runner have improved over the course of his 4 years within the league, and in turn Jackson has changed into among the finest dual-threat quarterbacks within the league.
In an article posted by Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, he listed the NFL’s top 10 quarterbacks for 2022 as voted on by executives, coaches and players. Jackson one way or the other didn’t make the cut, as an alternative earning an honorable mention. When explaining why Jackson was absent from the list, Fowler said the quarterback’s stats from last season hurt his standing, in addition to talking about how his rushing ability may not hold-up long run.
“Keeping a quarterback with an MVP award and a 37-12 record as a starter off a top-10 list is surprising, but that’s exactly what greater than half of the voters did. Despite standout moments in 2021 — including 442 passing yards on Monday Night Football against the Colts in October — Jackson finished the yr with a career-low 50.7 QBR. He struggled mightily in his last three full games with six interceptions and 13 sacks as teams blitzed him heavily. And he missed the last month of the season with an ankle injury, fueling concern about how his running style will delay long run.”
When healthy, Jackson is among the finest players within the NFL, so leaving him out of any top-10 list at his position is baffling to say the least. He impacts the sport in so many various ways, has had an incredible amount of success as knowledgeable, and has proven that he a franchise player at the very best level.
Through 4 seasons, Jackson has a 64.1 completion percentage, 9,967 passing yards and 87 touchdowns on 852 attempts. The previous league MVP also has rushed for 3,673 yards and 21 touchdowns on 615 attempts.
