The polarizing prospect confirmed he will throw at the combine (unlike Southern Cal quarterback Sam Darnold) but won't run the 40-yard dash.
The buzz began building when former Colts executive Bill Polian told ESPN he thought Jackson should switch to receiver because he's not as accurate, tall or strong as the other hopefuls in this year's deep class of college quarterbacks.
"No teams have asked me to be a wide receiver", Jackson said.
"That's insane. I thought I did a good job at quarterback".
Buffalo general manager Brandon Beane feels as though Jackson has what it takes to play quarterback in the NFL.
Kelly Ripa reacts to allegations against co-host Ryan Seacrest
Seacrest , 43, has denied claims he sexually harassed his former stylist . " You are happiness", Seacrest told his co-host. I have always had a problem with the Fashion Police . "I don't know. that is where this stuff gets tricky".
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".
Jackson has passed for 9,043 yards and 69 touchdowns, while rushing for 4,132 yards and 50 touchdowns during his three seasons at Louisville. If you look at film, I notice that myself. "I just have to show off my ability". "I've been working on my accuracy", Jackson said. "I want to learn as much as I can".
The team has spoken to Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph, Washington State quarterback Luke Falk and Memphis quarterback Riley Ferguson, among others. I love the game with a passion. "I think that would help me a lot".
Not only that, but some think Jackson's athleticism would make him a unsafe wideout. But that day's coming, and that's why the Chargers are actively looking at players at that position. "You gonna get the salary you're going to get". "But we're also realistic to know that we have some work to do to plan for the future".
The Cleveland Browns would make sense as a destination, as Allen has the build of a similar quarterback the Browns missed on in 2016, and the team has two of the first four picks. When you have a guy who can move around a little bit like Lamar, you make a defense play 11-on-11. That's what he brings to the table, " Lynn said, per the Chargers' official website.
