Lamar Jackson Has Already Proven He Should Be Drafted as a Quarterback

INDIANAPOLIS — Lamar Jackson had already answered the big question in virtually every version Friday. 

Has any team asked you to work out at receiver?

“No team has asked me to play wide receiver,” the former Louisville quarterback said. “I don’t even know where it comes from. I’m strictly quarterback. Yes, sir.”

What has your reaction been to people who suggest you should change positions? 

“I’m not going to their team—if anything,” the 2016 Heisman Trophy winner said. “Whoever likes me at quarterback, that’s where I’m going. That’s strictly my position.”

Just to be clear, has anyone asked you to play receiver at the Combine?

“I’m not going to be a wide receiver—at all—tomorrow.”

Do you see a racial component in the media asking about whether you move to receiver? Josh Allen doesn’t get asked about working out at tight end.

“I’m a quarterback. I don’t know anything about racial slurs.”

After he’d made that abundantly clear, Jackson’s Combine press conference moved on to the usual business of what teams he’d met with (Bills, Bears, Steelers, Dolphins, Giants, Eagles) and what he brings to the table as a quarterback. But then one more person tried to slip the position switch question past him.
