Baker Mayfield might be Lamar Jackson’s biggest supporter. At the very least, the NFL Draft quarterback prospect from Oklahoma sees his fellow Heisman Trophy-winning QB from Louisville throwing passes in the league, not catching them.
Jackson in recent weeks has raised his draft profile from a likely Day 2 pick to a possible first-round quarterback. It’s funny to think that a month ago teams supposedly were thinking he should try a new position.
He’s very talented, Mayfield added regarding Jackson. I love the guy. I think he’s going to have success. He’s fine.
I had a lot of fun with Aaron, Rosen said, via CBS Sports. It was really helpful. He taught me a lot, on and off the field, how to be a pro, how to conduct yourself.
It’s hard to deny Rosen is good at going through his progressions and finding players down the field. He is the most polished thrower out of the quarterbacks in this class and having run Jim Mora’s offense at UCLA, he is certainly prepared to step into the NFL and execute a pro-style offense.
I think we’re very similar personalty types, Rosen said of working with Rodgers. He’s a bit sarcastic and we kind of jab each other a little bit. It was all in good nature, it was a lot of fun. It was an awesome morning.
The question isn’t in Rosen’s ability though, it is in his commitment to the game. Whether this is an appropriate question or not remains to be seen, but he tried to assuage those worries at the combine as well.
Chow also said the SJHL has looked into the Go Fund Me page, which has raised more than $5 million. Chow said, to his knowledge, that money will only go to the families and players affected by the bus tragedy and that cannot be deviated from.
The news conference was held at the Broncos’ home arena, which has become a crisis epicenter. Sheldon Kennedy, a former NHL player who was a survivor of another junior hockey tragedy in the 1980s, was on hand to offer support. A bus carrying Kennedy and his teammates on the Swift Current Broncos crashed in 1986, killing four. Kennedy said counseling was not made available to him in the immediate aftermath.
