Teams want QB Jackson at WR in combine

And in case you didn't get that: "Whoever likes me at quarterback that's where I'm going", Jackson said. "That's strictly my position".

The Cleveland Browns, who selected DeShone Kizer in the second round past year, seem likely to take a quarterback.

The 2016 Heisman Trophy victor is a fascinating prospect.

There's Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield, and questions about the Heisman winner's size and stature. Some evaluators believe he's Michael Vick but better.

In other words, it's no big deal for Jackson to be asked to work out as a wide receiver because several other players in this class have also been asked to work out at other positions.

Asked about the report Friday morning, Jackson said, "That's insane. I think he's going to get every chance to prove that before he ever looks at a position change".

"I started watching him", Elway said.

"I feel like Drew Brees now", joked Jackson about his newfound stance.

The sharply dressed staff were put through a battery of physical tests, just like their athletic counterparts down the round at Lucas Oil Stadium, including a "40"-yard dash, a shrimp cocktail bench press and tray-wielding agility drills".

I know it sounds insane, and it definitely is, but in some alternate reality where it actually happens, I'm being called a genius, because I thought of it first. That's not what we do in the NFL.

Stephanie McMahon's Slap to Ronda Rousey Reportedly Legitimate
Paul Heyman , Lesnar's on-screen manager for the WWE, told TMZ Brock Lesnar does "whatever Brock Lesnar wants to do". WWE has yet to issue an official confirmation regarding Lesnar's future in the coming Wrestlemania 34 .

Whatever the reason (s) for this, it's a prime example of why Jackson needs to hire an agent.

At no. 2 is the New York Giants. It's just odd the system hasn't caught up. He will not entertain any position in the National Football League other than quarterback.

"I can't speak for the media. I'm here now, I'm at the combine, I'm happy to be here, I just have to show off my ability". "I'm a quarterback. I don't know anything about no racial slurs". I thought I did!

Jackson is too polite to tell reporters what they should be told in regards to that question.

Since that report, Jackson made his feelings well known. Pundits aren't sure if the dynamic Jackson's play style will translate to the NFL.

"Yeah, I'm not much on that", Reid said earlier this week. "I just have to show off my ability". "No sir. No sir". And that's why Jackson is focused exclusively on throwing well Saturday morning inside Lucas Oil Stadium: to prove his doubters wrong.

With the fifth overall pick in April's draft, they are in good position.

"I'm mobile, I can hit any target on the field", Jackson said. I love putting a chip on my shoulder. I can lead my team. "I love those boys - Jarvis Landry, that would be a great offense". I'm not a ball hog, at all.

"I love putting a chip on my shoulder". When you have a guy who can move around a little bit like Lamar, you make a defense play 11-on-11. Jackson knows this. He was recruited by many big-time colleges.

"Cam Newton and Tom Brady". Ridley said the Dolphins were his favorite team and it would "mean a lot" to get drafted by them.
