Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson has impressed NFL front offices and scouts with his talent, but some have expressed concerns with the Louisville quarterback's 6-foot-3, 205-pound frame in regard to his professional future.
"I love the player," one league source told ESPN. "There's not a player I'd rather watch in college football. But he's so skinny."
Jackson was compared to Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, who suffered a noncontact knee injury during practice over the summer that ended his season and put his NFL career in jeopardy. Bridgewater is listed at 6-2, 215 pounds.
"I love the player. He'll play in the NFL," the source said of Jackson. "I just don't know what he'll be. He could be a slash, he could be a quarterback, but I'm not sure on that body type."
Jackson won Louisville's first Heisman on Saturday, finishing ahead of Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson. The Cardinals quarterback is only a sophomore and will have another college season to potentially fill out and improve his draft stock in the minds of NFL scouts.
