The Baltimore Ravens are in the midst of a deep contract negotiation with the star quarterback, Lamar Jackson.

The Ravens selected Jackson with the No. 32 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and they have seen their investment pay off in a big way as the fifth-year player has won MVP and broke countless team and NFL records.

But for how great Jackson has been over the course of his career, there is still one current defensive coordinator that isn’t a fan, sharing this brutal assessment of the dynamic signal-caller in an article from Mike Sando of the Athletic, saying Jackson will never be “a one” as a quarterback:

Jackson’s dynamic playing style is different from the traditional pocket-passer, but Baltimore has done a great job building a successful offensive around him. Jackson has proved to be both an effective passer and runner, which makes the defensive coordinators opinion very strange. While the quarterback still has areas where he can improve, he has a powerful arm with great touch on his deep throws, and is effective from the pocket.
