I question Jackson's ability to adapt from college to the NFL based on his 13 wonderlic score alone.
Vince Young was another Heisman winner with a very low wonderlic score and he couldn't.

Vikings wide receiver Laquan Treadwell is another 1st rounder with a low wonderlic score and he just can seem to
learn route running in the NFL.
Adrian Peterson is another that was not a smart man, but fast strong running backs with good vision can succeed in
the NFL on instincts alone.

Yeah you got lucky the Ravens pulled off a dumb move. Jackson won’t make it as a QB.

Exactly. He is just like Tebow, Manziel and RGIII. Running qb do not make it in the NFL.

C. Newton?

Randall Cunningham had a pretty good rushing total, and Steve Young wasn't far behind him. Fran Tarkington would run too, but lots of times, it was for his life, flushed out of the pocket.



Vick and Kaepernick ran pretty well. Russell Wilson can be a dual threat. Kaepernick is out b/c of his protest, but I think if a team would take a chance he'd be as economical as Cousins, Smith and Keenum will be. He couldn't be any worse than the dud from Houston a couple years ago.

In his early years George Blanda could run. In the later years, it was hard to watch him try or even jog off the field after booting a field goal.

They don't make 'em like him any more..

As usual, the Texans idea of an Offensive Line , is 5 guys who haven’t showered in a week!
That's funny and don't know why I didn't acknowledge it as such sooner.
2019 draft they used their first 2 picks on OL, we'll see what the coaching staff can do with 'em.
