NFL analyst Warren Sharp bullish on Lamar Jackson headed into season

NFL analyst Warren Sharp bullish on Lamar Jackson headed into season

Warren Sharp held nothing back when discussing Lamar Jackson’s 2018 season. 

In a blog post on his website, Sharp posted an article titled ‘You’re Wrong About Lamar Jackson’ that detailed why he thinks Jackson isn’t only underrated but poised for a breakout year. 

Sharp, a former engineer, is a football analyst who specializes in advanced statistics in relation to football. And when it comes to the Ravens second-year quarterback, he’s as high as ever. 

On The Daily Line, Sharp said, “I just think he’s severely underestimated with what people saw last season. What people don’t realize is that out of the 11 rookie quarterbacks in the NFL who started when they were 21-years older or less, Lamar Jackson had the best passer rating in NFL history.”

Jackson, who started the last seven games of the Ravens season last year, finished 6-1 as a starter, but left some doubting his ability to sustain that success. Notably, it was his passing touch that left analysts and fans questioning whether or not he was the right quarterback for the Ravens.

But Sharp is one analyst who is confident in what Jackson’s skillset can do for the Ravens, who are expected to run the ball more than any team in the league. 

Jackson also posted a snippet of the blog to his Instagram story on Tuesday, too. 

The Ravens open up the season on Sept. 8 against the Dolphins, where Jackson will begin his quest to prove his doubters wrong — and Sharp right.
