Multiple teams request Lamar Jackson to work out as WR

I decided I didn't need one.

Lamar Jackson is one of the most talked about players in the 2018 NFL Draft and has massive potential.

Multiple NFL teams have requested Jackson to work out at wide receiver at this week's combine, NFL Network's Peter Schrager reports. I really thought I did! "I know they want to feed their family", Jackson said. Adding, "you know, that's strictly my position". Hall of Fame general manager Bill Polian said recently that Jackson should move to wide receiver.

But the questions still came.

Jackson, a native of Pompano Beach, Florida is familiar with the Dolphins' roster and believes he would mesh well with the team's current running backs and wide receivers. The NFL isn't fond of outliers. If Jackson, who measured 6-2¼ here and weighed in at 216, has any quarterbacking viability at all, that is likely to be a more promising path than trying to learn how to do something he has never done.

The going rate for a Super Bowl MVP is normally high, especially when that MVP is a quarterback. The Quarterback was pretty dominant in college, but now teams are asking Jackson to try out at Wide Receiver. "I can hit any target on the field". "I love the game with a passion". I love to put the ball in other receivers' hands. "It may look like it, but I'm not".

Chiefs coach Andy Reid made a rare venture into sarcasm this week, when he was asked at the combine if he thought Jackson could be a wide receiver.

So plain and simply Jackson is indeed a Quarterback even though some want him to be a wideout. He knows he must improve his accuracy and his footwork, and he's working hard in south Florida leading up to the draft to make strides in that area. I'm just saying in general. "Don't wait to make that [position] change".

Jackson had sprinter training - as did Ross - but there you have it from the horse's mouth. "As a rookie, you're going to get the salary you're going to get. He's going to be taking a bit cut of my paycheck that I feel I deserve it right now!" "I do have a guy".

But going your own direction tends to make the National Football League nervous.

Jackson had a formal meeting with the Eagles which is significant because teams only get a limited amount of formal interviews. He'll probably have more soon.
