Lamar Jackson makes his National Football League position clear

Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson before the Tax Slayer Bowl

"I did!" said Jackson, laughing. The more i think about it, Lamar Jackson could be a special kind of player in the NFL.

Analyst Bucky Brooks called Louisville QB Lamar Jackson one of the "losers" on Saturday during the NFL Scouting Combine.

"I don't know if you've ever gotten the pleasure of throwing a touchdown pass, but nothing beats it".

"I'm not going to their team, if anything", Jackson said.

"No team has asked me to play wide receiver", the former UofL quarterback said. Miami, which played the 2017 season without injured starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill, would have a major hole to fill if Landry were to be traded during the offseason.

Then, another question, to which Jackson replied: "I'm a quarterback".

No one produced as many electrifying plays in college football over the past two years than Jackson.

Jackson not only indicated that he hasn't heard a single team ask that of him but that he has no intentions of switching positions entering the league.

Considering his credentials, Jackson is understandably surprised to be on "prove it" territory before the 2018 NFL Draft.

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

Jackson, who finished his collegiate career at Louisville with 9,043 yards, 69 touchdowns and a 142.9 quarterback rating in three seasons, said he is "shocked" to hear the rumors about him playing wide receiver. "I'm at the Combine, I've just got to show off my ability". Let's exhaust that other thing that we know he's good at and see. There's been plenty of pushback against Jackson already, even from normally reasonable voices.

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

Look, no one really has any idea if Jackson will be any good in the NFL.

Jackson shot down that report during his time at the podium. But surrounding him with talent which includes WR Keenan Allen, TE Hunter Henry, the dynamic RB duo of Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler will only set Jackson up for success shortly and help win over fans in the city of Los Angeles.

"Just trying to learn as much as I could, and be asking him a lot of questions like 'Why did you do this?"
