Lamar Jackson might work with Tom House before training camp

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson‘s progression as a passer is going to be watched closely once games get going later this year and he discussed his pre-camp plans to work on his throwing on Thursday.

The Ravens’ offseason program wrapped up with the end of minicamp and Jackson said that the three-day session was “very productive.” That’s a better review than he gave to his first days of work in the organized team activity period and an effort to extend the progress may include a visit with quarterback guru Tom House.

House and Adam Dedeaux have been the go-to tutors for NFL quarterbacks looking to work on their mechanics in recent years and Jackson said he might head to California for some of that work. He said will definitely be throwing with his teammates.

“July, we’re going to get together here or in Florida,” Jackson said, via the team’s website. “We’re just going to try to get better, keep it going.”

Offensive coordinator Greg Roman said this week that Jackson has “raised his level in every column” over the course of the offseason. He noted that has to keep happening for Jackson to get where he needs to be and the next few weeks will offer Jackson an opportunity to make that happen.

  1. The real question is that if Jackson doesn’t improve his throwing, will the MEDIA criticize him as vociferously as they did Tim Tebow?
    I highly doubt they would, now matter how poor Jackson plays…but the question MUST be asked.

  2. You want to improve, go to House – period. Even this January when Brady had a playoff bye week he spent time with House when other veteran elite QBs prob wouldn’t have felt a need.

  3. Trivia: In the bullpen as a reliever for the Atlanta Braves, Tom House caught Hank Aaron’s 715th home run ball, the one that put Hammerin’ Hank past the Babe on the all time HR list.

  4. Jackson should work with someone on WR/RB skills. He’s just gonna run. His IQ just isn’t there. He’s the next Pryor!

  5. I am not a Raven’s fan, but the kid is interesting. House teaches the best. It can not be a bad thing to want to learn and try to learn from the teacher who learned the best. Judge Jackson is 3 years. If he is still running 60% of the time, then they made a bad choice. Do not forget Michael Vick. Had all the same issues, and was a very successful quarterback in Atlanta.

    ==============================

    they did not have the same issues. vick was a faster more elusive runner and had a laser accurate fastball that had touch. vick was way more of an advanced player at their comparative ages.

  7. If Jackson can’t hold on to the ball, he won’t get the oppurtunity to throw. Ball security first.

  8. Lamar is going to be fine. And the Ravens will have a successful season (e.g. Playoff Team).

  9. Lamar is much farther along mentally than most young QB’s because his college coach, Bobby Petrino was so unselfish and dedicated himself to prepping this kid for the NFL. Lamar, like any other young QB has a long way to go before he reaches his prime. Just pure accuracy throwing the ball is really what he needs to work on, and maybe one of these specialists can help in that regard. The Ravens never drafted him to be a runner. Like Steve Young in his early years, you use all your skills until you master the game. It’s not a guarantee that Jackson will become an accurate passer, but it looks like the Ravens are willing to give him an opportunity. In the mean time, it’s a lot of fun.

  10. Lamar has earned the respect of his teammates and is working harder to improve every day, contrast this to Baker Mayfield.
