Teams want QB Jackson at WR in combine

Multiple teams request Lamar Jackson to work out as WR

Through most of the college football season, Lamar Jackson didn't seem to get as much attention as you would think a defending Heisman Trophy victor would get.

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". The easy comeback to teams asking Jackson to try out at receiver, for example, is: Why aren't teams asking Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen, a 6-5, 233-pound quarterback with upside but holes in his game, to try out at tight end?

"No teams has asked me to play wide receiver", Jackson said Friday. But hours later, Jackson said he was "shocked" by the news because "no teams have asked me to play wide receiver". Newsome said Baltimore is not thinking about replacing Flacco anytime soon but will not hesitate to draft a QB if that is the best player on their board at a certain time. It's the equivalent of a baseball team drafting a successful starting pitcher who doesn't fit the typical profile (he's too short, doesn't throw hard enough, etc.) and immediately moving him to the bullpen in the minors. Even though Jackson has never played the position.

"Yeah, I think you probably want to try it there (at quarterback) and see", Reid said. His dual threat ability has some National Football League analysts believing he should change positions because of a lack of pocket awareness and the speed he possesses. I'm just saying in general.

"That's insane. I thought I did a good job at quarterback".

Jackson said no team has asked him to considering switching positions. "I'm not going to be a wide receiver at all".

Turkey blasts France, US over Syria Afrin ceasefire suggestion
The Turkish government has criticized a Czech court for its decision to release a Syrian Kurdish leader who was detained in Prague on Saturday.

"Like I said before", Jackson said.

"I don't think that Lamar, the Louisville kid's in that discussion, in fact there's a question that he may be, he might be a receiver..." "That's why they're doubting me right now".

"I'm mobile, I can hit any target on the field". I love putting a chip on my shoulder. I love to score. "I love those boys - Jarvis Landry, that would be a great offense". "I just love winning, yes sir".

Ron Jaworski, who spends many important hours of his life obsessing over THE FILM, says Jackson is a star.

"I feel the film speaks for itself with [running], showing off my speed and showing I can make people miss", Jackson said".
