Lamar Jackson gives $100 to lucky man who didn't recognize him originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

When Lamar Jackson went through the draft process, some NFL analysts predicted he may have to switch positions to play wide receiver if his passing game didn't improve from his Heisman-winning days at Louisville. Jackson obviously proved those analysts wrong as he's become one of the top quarterbacks in the league.

But when the 2019 unanimous MVP crossed paths with one lucky fan during draft week and told him he'd give him $100 cash if for correctly identifying him, the fan didn't know who Jackson was and, much like those analysts, incorrectly guessed he played the wide receiver position. 

Jackson posted the exchange to his Instagram page on Wednesday night. 

"You might not get this $100," Jackson said in jest. 

Jackson has solidified himself as one of the league's most recognizable stars ever since becoming the starter for Baltimore in 2018. After the man in the video guessed Jackson was an offensive lineman, somebody may have told him who in fact had just given him that Benjamin Franklin. 

He came over and exclaimed "Lamar!" Jackson confirmed, the two embraced and the remarkable scene was complete.
