It’s no real secret that Lamar Jackson is one of the most difficult quarterbacks to defend in the entire NFL, and San Francisco 49ers All-Pro linebacker Fred Warner understands that as he prepares to face off against him this week.

During a press conference this week, Fred Warner explained exactly what makes Lamar Jackson so difficult to defend with his legs and his arm.

“When he is running, yeah, he can hurt you with his legs, but he can also hurt you by running [and] then look down the field and throw an explosive pass on you, that sort of thing,” Warner said according to David Bonilla of 49ers Webzone. “And him being more aware of wanting to stay in the pocket and deliver the football to the receivers, playmakers.

“So you can’t just sit there and say, ‘Hey, just hold him in the pocket. Don’t let him get loose.’ You hold him in the pocket, and you don’t apply pressure, then he’s going to hit you deep. So that’s where it’s like, we got to be on top of every little detail this week.”

We’ll have to see whether or not Warner is up to the task during this week’s showdown between the two teams.
