NFL Draft: Lamar Jackson would bring excitement back to Chargers

When asked about the notion he should switch positions, Jackson shut down that as quickly as he torched defenders with his flick of a wrist deep passes or jukes in the open field. "I'm not going to be a wide receiver at all".

Jackson, a Florida native from Pompano Beach, is widely viewed as the most polarizing player in the draft.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have met with the 2016 Heisman Trophy victor at the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

There was a time when African-American quarterbacks who weren't traditional pocket passers routinely were turned into wide receivers, but that was, as Cross noted, a while back.

While USC's Sam Darnold chose not to throw at the combine because he'd rather show off his arm with his own receivers at USC's upcoming pro day, Jackson decided not to run the 40-yard dash. That's an unusual decision, but Jackson's explanation makes more than enough sense.

Elsewhere, Cleveland Browns hold No 1 and No 4 picks of the draft and Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield believes he could transform the franchise if he made the move, refuting claims his height could be a problem in the NFL.

Jackson added that he will throw Saturday but not participate in any of the athletic testing with the rest of the quarterback group.

"I've been working on that a lot during my process - working on my accuracy", he said.

"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. I'm strictly a quarterback.I thought I did a good job at quarterback".

Not the case. "Not that I know of", Jackson said.

How fun would it be to see Bill Belichick use Lamar Jackson?

"I'm mobile, I can hit any target on the field", Jackson said. "I play the quarterback position". I'm not a ball hog, at all. He's gonna be taking a big cut of my paycheck anyways, and I feel I deserve it right now. "He really is. I understand why people say (he should switch to wide receiver) because they've seen guys convert that are special athletes". He has a lawyer, who will represent him in contract negotiations, and his mother is acting as his "manager". "As a rookie, you're going to get the salary you're going to get. It may look like it, but I'm not". "I just love winning, yes sir". "They like him. The couple games I saw, I think he's a nightmare for defenses", Lynn said. I wonder how numerous media had met him.

Rosen's 3,756 yards, 26 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 2017 point to his processing ability doing what at times his body, through injury alone, could not, which proves he's more than just a sound bite at the interview sessions.
