Lamar Jackson details hilarious pre-draft visit with Bill Belichick

There is more than meets the eye with New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick. The sleeveless hoodie, frowning on the sidelines and no-nonsense approach in most dealings with the media give the impression that Belichick has no sense of humor.

Well, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson can confirm that is far from true.

Jackson admitted he had the same assumptions as everyone else before meeting Belichick at a pre-draft meeting in 2018. But his expectations were blown completely out of the water during his first face-to-face interaction with the six-time Super Bowl-winning head coach.

“I’ve seen Belichick smile,” Jackson told reporters on Wednesday. “I usually see him and he’s… [like straight-faced guy]. When I saw him smile, I thought ‘Dang, you have a sense of humor.’ I told him that. He was like, ‘Yeah.’ I’m like, ‘I didn’t expect you to smile.’”

The Patriots went into that draft with two first-round picks and came away with standouts in Georgia, leaving Isaiah Wynn behind and running back Sony Michel.

Jackson would have made an interesting selection in a patriot uniform. But then the team still had Tom Brady and they waited until the seventh round to draft Danny Etling.

You better believe the Ravens don’t want to see Belichick laughing on Sunday, when they enter Foxborough to meet the Patriots.
