Lamar Jackson: I'm 'strictly' a quarterback, haven't been asked to play receiver

Lamar Dalton pretty much. Dalton

But you know, they didn't really care. "I'm not going to be a wide receiver at all tomorrow [during workouts] - quarterback position".

Jackson was extremely likeable in his 15-minute interview with reporters. Oh, and he's not switching to wide receiver.

Louisville's Jackson, the 2016 Heisman Trophy Award victor and one of the more electric players in college football the past two seasons, said he has not been asked by any NFL teams to move from quarterback to wide receiver. "That's insane; I thought I was doing a good job at quarterback, you know, but hey".

During a fun news conference with reporters on Friday, the Louisville quarterback said he's not playing wide receiver and wasn't asked to. Adding, "you know, that's strictly my position".

Jackson hasn't hired an agent because he thinks the rookie wage scale is simple enough to negotiate. He has a lawyer, who will represent him in contract negotiations, and his mother is acting as his "manager". "Lamar has no idea how to throw with his core and legs", said one NFC scout who specializes in quarterbacks. "He's going to be taking a big cut of my paycheck and I feel like I deserve it, yes sir". "Yes sir. I'm cool under pressure". He mentioned the Eagles as a team he has met with, which might be due diligence, but is interesting, given that the team clearly left open the possibility of trading Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles.

But he was steeped in Bobby Petrino's offensive system that is derivative of the Erhardt-Perkins offense that has been run all over the National Football League, namely by the coordinators of the New England Patriots, starting with Charlie Weis in the early 2000s.

Lynn saw what a mobile quarterback can do for an offense during his time with the Jets and Bills as a running backs coach, offensive coordinator, assistant head coach and interim head coach.

While his numbers are akin to a created player in Madden, Jackson vows to take his game to another level upon entering the NFL. "I'd rather not have him switch positions", Elway said. I just love winning. I lead my team. I feel like I'm a field general when I'm out there. You know I love DeVante Parker and those guys out there - Kenyan Drake, [Kenny] Stills. If you look at film, I notice that myself. "I just love wining".

Last season, Jackson threw for 3,660 yards with 27 touchdowns on top of 1,601 rushing yards and 18 touchdowns. Naturally, he won't be a fit for every team, but there's without a doubt systems that he can dominate in.

"He is a special athlete", Beane said.

"... I think if he's going to make it, he's going to make it as a quarterback in the right situation". He won the Heisman doing that. Beane and McDermott expressed an interest in seeing how the quarterbacks would command a room and express their football knowledge. Jackson kept the mood light Friday, but he also made it clear that he won't be working out at wide receiver or playing wide receiver. He listed Brady and Cam Newton - "Superheroes", he called them - as two quarterbacks he loves to emulate and watch and learn from. "They say what they want to say". Just in case his 40 year old QB decides to hang up his helmet for good.
