Lamar Jackson denies reports, adament he is 'strictly a quarterback'

Jackson certainly has a point there, even if based exclusively on his numbers at Louisville the past two seasons.

Jackson said it was "absolutely" disrespectful that teams want him as a receiver, but said none of the teams mentioned that to him in any of his meetings.

Asked by a reporter whether he would be open to being used "all over the field" by a team that already has an established quarterback, Jackson said: "No wildcat". "I'm not going to be a wide receiver at all tomorrow [during workouts] - quarterback position". "You know I'm from there - Pompano Beach Florida".

There isn't anything someone could say about a Bo Jackson athletic feat that I wouldn't believe at the drop of a hat. Because of his speed - estimated in the 4.35 range - and athleticism, former National Football League general manager Bill Polian of ESPN suggested last week that Jackson would make a better wide receiver than quarterback.

"No teams has asked me to play wide receiver", Jackson said.

Alexa will also be mindful of the Japanese culture, which is more formal and conservative than American culture. Google Pixel Buds has a similar feature and obviously work with a Google Assistant.


And quarterback is the position he sees himself playing in the NFL.

"Whoever would like me at quarterback, that's where I'm going". If Jackson, who measured 6-2¼ here and weighed in at 216, has any quarterbacking viability at all, that is likely to be a more promising path than trying to learn how to do something he has never done. We'll see how other evaluators feel about the 2016 Heisman Trophy victor.

Jackson did not catch a single pass during his three-year tenure at Louisville. "I am here now, I am at the combine, I just have to show off my ability". "But I know I can take it to a whole other level".

The notion was floated by former Colts executive Bill Polian, who said during an interview with ESPN recently that Jackson is "short and a little bit slight and clearly, clearly not the thrower that the other guys are" in this year's draft class.

"You know, things happen", Jackson said about that game and falling below the 60 mark. I'd just sit back and try to learn from him as much as I could ... But surrounding him with talent which includes WR Keenan Allen, TE Hunter Henry, the dynamic RB duo of Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler will only set Jackson up for success shortly and help win over fans in the city of Los Angeles. He's going to take a big cut, and I feel like I deserve it right now.
