Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson believes that quarterback Andy Dalton has all the attributes to become one of the best at his position.

Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson has revealed that he is delighted with the ability of quarterback Andy Dalton.

The 26-year-old has been the club's starter for the past three seasons and guided them to the playoffs in every campaign, but is yet to record a victory in the post-season.

Despite his troubles in the playoffs, Jackson believes that Dalton has the quality needed to be a top-tier quarterback.

He told the club's official website: "[He is] spectacular. [It is] the first time I've been able to work with him hands on. He has all the characteristics I like in a quarterback.

"He's smart, he comes to work prepared and ready to go, and he comes to the practice field ready to compete. He can make all the necessary throws. I haven't seen any throw he can't make."

Jackson was hired as the Bengals' new offensive coordinator earlier in the off-season following the departure of Jay Gruden.
