Grading the Big 5: Week 9 grade for Louisville QB Lamar Jackson


Editor's note: analysts and former NFL scouts Bucky Brooks and Daniel Jeremiah will grade the performances of 5 top prospects each week of the 2016 season. Click the tabs above to see their Week 9 marks for each of the players.

Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville


Stats: 24-of-41 for 361 yards, 4 TDs, 1 INT. 18 carries for 90 yards (5.0 average). (at Virginia)

Skinny: The stat sheet warrants an A+, but Jackson missed some easy throws in this game. He's set the bar so high that every little mistake stands out. When it mattered most, he led Louisville down the field, coming through in the clutch on a fourth-down conversion, to avoid the upset by Virginia. His dynamic running skills were on display when the opportunities presented themselves. Jackson proved he is still the most dangerous playmaker in college football. -- Daniel Jeremiah
