Lamar Jackson: I'm a quarterback, plain and simple

Lamar Jackson: I'm a quarterback, plain and simple

Jackson has a different approach to the draft than many.

"No teams have asked me to play wide receiver", he said.

Jackson has been adamant this week about not changing positions after rumors surfaced that some teams were asking him to audition as a wide receiver.

"That's insane. I thought I did a good job at quarterback". And yet the Wyoming quarterback - who, as you can guess, is white - Is being hailed as the potential number one overall pick, while Jackson has to deal with countless questions regarding his position.

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".

He's an elite college quarterback (9,043 passing yards, 69 touchdowns, plus 4,132 rushing yards and 50 rushing touchdowns), but doubts remain about his accuracy, mechanics and football intelligence. It may look like it, but I'm not. I'm just saying in general. "If there's anyone who would turn that franchise around, it'd be me", he said. "I want to learn as much as I can".

The Patriots are also looking at Washington State's Luke Falk and Kyle Lauletta of Richmond as a possible backup to Brady. Rudolph even met Rivers during a workout a few weeks ago. "I think that would be great, especially in my situation, coming and learning from somebody who has been successful at that level, just trying to learn the ins and outs of the game and what they have done to be successful". "I want to bring him in. I think that would help me a lot". There is a possibility that Jackson will fall late in the first round, where the Patriots come into play at No. "You gonna get the salary you're going to get".

The Cleveland Browns would make sense as a destination, as Allen has the build of a similar quarterback the Browns missed on in 2016, and the team has two of the first four picks.

"Short, a little bit slight and clearly not the thrower the other guys are", Polian said recently. But when the offense can go 11-on-11, that's a defensive coordinator's worst nightmare.
