Jackson won't switch spots: 'I'm a quarterback'

Jackson won't switch spots: 'I'm a quarterback'

"He really is. I understand why people say (he should switch to wide receiver) because they've seen guys convert that are special athletes".

The throng of reporters gathered around the podium where Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson stepped up to speak Friday at the NFL Scouting Combine numbered more than 100.

Jackson knows he has some work to do. He also set the Louisville record for total offense (13,175 yards), rushing yards (4,132), rushing touchdowns (50) and total touchdowns (119). Someone who could make sure there was an entire Lamar Jackson scheme in the playbook, that would let him catch, throw, and run and keep the opposing defense off balance.

- Western Kentucky quarterback Mike White was a baseball pitcher in high school in Fort Lauderdale and was good enough to get a phone call from the Toronto Blue Jays in the 14th round of the Major League Baseball draft. "Whoever likes me at quarterback, that's where I'm goin'". It seems likely that they will take a quarterback at that spot. I can lead my team, and I feel like the field general when I'm out there. Mayfield, however, isn't considered the top quarterback prospect, that honor belonging to Sam Darnold or Josh Rosen depending on who you want to believe.

"No teams have asked me to play wide receiver". Jackson played under head coach Bobby Petrino, who runs an Erhardt-Perkins offense, which is the same system the New England Patriots run.

"Exceptional athelete, exceptional ability to make you miss, exceptional acceleration, exceptional instinct with the ball in his hand", Polian said, "and that's rare for wide receivers".

Good for him, then, for explaining why he has a lawyer and his mom as his manager, but no agent. If the requests have been made, why not simply say, "Some of them asked me to do it, and I told them no". "That's insane; I thought I was doing a good job at quarterback, you know, but hey". I just love to win. "You gonna get the salary you're going to get". I'm here now. I'm at the combine.

Jackson also clarified that his mother, Felicia Jones, is his manager and that he hired a lawyer to negotiate his contract rather than an agent because of the current rookie wage scale.
