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 13 marks for each of the players.

Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville


Stats: 16-of-24 for 281 yards, 2 TD, 3 INTs. 25 carries for 171 yards (6.8 average), 2 TDs (lost a fumble). (vs. Kentucky)

Skinny: This was an up-and-down performance for Lamar Jackson, but after watching the tape, I thought there was significantly more good than bad. He threw for 281 yards and two scores while also rushing for 171 yards and two more touchdowns. He made some beautiful drive throws down the field and he was dynamic on several rushing attempts. He did have four turnovers, but I don't fault him for two of them. His fumble was the result of a poor call by the officials and one of his interceptions came on a Hail Mary on the final play of the game. His other two interceptions were completely his fault, but he played well enough for Louisville to win the game.
