There's no reason to think he can't be a solid player there in the NFL. Yes and no, according to Jackson.
Louisville quarterback Jackson also was sitting in the green room a long time.
No, Carr is not in danger of being pushed aside by the Raiders drafting Jackson.
Michel also has shown the ability to be effective in the passing game.
The NFL average for the statistic is 19.5 percent, meaning that basically 20 percent of NFL quarterbacks' throws are inaccurate. I just fire away with the picks they done brung. Though, a trade up into the top five would likely cost all four picks in addition to a high-round selection next year. So many reliable draftniks (Mayock, McShay, etc.) think Jackson has the potential to be the most exciting and productive quarterback in this crop-but you'll have to cater your offense to him. For example, Geno Smith had a 71.2 completion percentage at West Virginia.
In three seasons at Louisville, the dual-threat Jackson passed for 9,043 yards with 69 touchdowns and 27 interceptions while completing 57 percent of his throws.
Players at the green room slide every year. Michel has the versatility to be a star in the Patriots' system, working as a receiver and slashing through defenses as a runner.
Carr never had to deal with the notion of moving from quarterback.
Patriots not concerned with fumbles: Michel had 12 career fumbles in college, which could be an issue, but director of player personnel Nick Caserio said late Thursday that the team isn't alarmed. So, I don't understand the whole "need" thing.
But Michel should be the No. 1 running back for the Patriots this year, and he's the best option to replace Lewis, who just had more than 1,000 total yards and scored nine touchdowns in 2017. That's almost even odds.
The Patriots were linked to Rosen, but it was the Cardinals who made the move up the board to make sure they got their man. So even then you don't know. Jameis Winston had been investigated for a slew of criminal acts ranging from shoplifting to rape.
The Patriots enter Day 2 of the draft Friday with three picks, two in the second round (43rd, 63rd) and one in the third (95th) so they could conceivably add a quarterback there.
With the first day of the National Football League draft over, here is a look at each of the first-rounder's situation now that they are officially in the NFL. But if he doesn't, it won't be because he's black.
