Lamar Jackson says he’s a quarterback, period

But the former Heisman says that he wont work out for any team who wants him to be anything other than a quarterback, and has no plans to change positions.

QB Lamar Jackson said no team has asked him to take part in receiver drills. “I’m a quarterback,” he said. He has no plans to change. #NFLCombine

Glad to see Jackson standing his ground and setting the record straight. 

For anyone to even think of drafting a guy thats being called the next Mike Vick as a wide receiver is absurd, and a team with such egregious draft analysis and scouting doesnt deserve the talented dual quarterback.
