While the Ravens are using Lamar Jackson at multiple positions during minicamp, he has impressed his teammates at quarterback.
"Every time he runs I’m in awe because most people -- especially a quarterback -- can’t move the way he does," wide receiver Chris Moore said after the Ravens' first day of mandatory minicamp. "So you just know that this year he’s going to make some plays, for sure."
Moving Jackson all over the field has created a challenge for the Ravens' defense.
"It’s very creative," Pro Bowl linebacker C.J. Mosley said. "We don’t really know it’s going to work until we put it out there. It’s been giving us some problems on some of the plays. It’s cool just to see the way we can switch things up with quarterbacks. As long as we don’t have Joe [Flacco] doing too much running, that’s really all that matters."
Jackson has even elicited opinions to Michael Vick.
"Once he gets out of the pocket, it’s like watching a young Michael Vick," Mosley said. "It’s amazing to watch. When you’re defending him, you just have to act like you’re tagging off -- you don’t want to be on the highlight reel."
