Did teams ask Lamar Jackson to do receiver drills, or didn't they?

Graziano agrees: "You consider yourself a quarterback, and you've been a good one - be a quarterback".

But he was steeped in Bobby Petrino's offensive system that is derivative of the Erhardt-Perkins offense that has been run all over the National Football League, namely by the coordinators of the New England Patriots, starting with Charlie Weis in the early 2000s. Former NFL general manager Bill Polian, citing Jackson's accuracy issues and physique, suggested Jackson should switch to wide receiver.

Everyone knows about Sam Darnold and Josh Rosen, the two prized jewels in this class.

Jackson, a native of Pompano Beach, Florida is familiar with the Dolphins' roster and believes he would mesh well with the team's current running backs and wide receivers. "And that has to do with girth and skill set as well".

The list of mobile quarterbacks that played a significant role at the QB position while Lynn was with the Jets included Geno Smith, Michael Vick and Tim Tebow.

Jackson said that's why he participating in quarterback drills on Saturday. "He's not a huge dude, but at 6'3" and 216 pounds, he ain't no tweener.

Considering his credentials, Jackson is understandably surprised to be on "prove it" territory before the 2018 NFL Draft. He had a prolific and productive career for the Cardinals, throwing for more than 9,000 yards and rushing for more than 4,000 yards in three seasons.


The 21-year-old won the Heisman Trophy in 2016, completing 56.2 per cent of his passes for 3,543 yards with 30 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Let's exhaust that other thing that we know he's good at and see.

Philadelphia Eagles lineman, Super Bowl champion, and resident woke white dude, Chris Long went on a long Twitter rant about the situation.

"Agents don't really negotiate anything", Jackson said. So plain and simply Jackson is indeed a Quarterback even though some want him to be a wideout. To ignore the role that race plays in these evaluations is just disingenuous. Jackson said that he had not met with the Patriots at the combine but that he'd be open to the idea.

How fun would it be to see Bill Belichick use Lamar Jackson?

The kid is wildly talented.

"No team has asked me to play wide receiver", Jackson said Friday at the Indianapolis Convention Center.
