Careless ball handling, unable to sense the pressure? The ball handling can be fixed though with coaching, time and effort. The small hand thing would have been hard to overcome but now it doesn't appear to be a problem.

He brings the ball low through his delivery. He also rarely uses off hand to protect the ball

Yup. But he's accurate, which Lamar is not.
I realize you dislike Lamar but you might try reading about the 12% drop rate by hids receivers.His accuracy improved every year in college and as i have stated before Louisville used aa vertical offense and dink and dunk was not much of a option.But you just keep on believing your narrative.Noboby has said Lamar is perfect but commenting on Lamars "inaccuracy without bringing upp contributing factors and not mentioning Josh Allens accuraacy issues or dink and dunk offenses used by some othher 1st roud QB prospects innonsense,

Well I hate to break it to you, but all QB's have receivers who drop balls. Both Mayfield and Rosen had receivers that dropped near 10% of their targets as well, but they still completed over 60% of their passes. Out of all the QB's to come out of Petrino's system...Lamar has the worst completion %. I don't 'hate' Jackson by any stretch...I think he has a great arm and amazing athleticism, but his mechanics and footwork are awful, and he's definitely the most raw out of the top 6 QB's coming out. He has the lowest floor, but probably the highest ceiling, which means he's by far the riskiest QB prospect.
