New England Patriots: Should the Pats go after Lamar Jackson?

Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson before the Tax Slayer Bowl

"And if a team asked him to change to receiver, he wouldn't do it".

The throng leaned forward as one. Why is there a conversation about Jackson, who threw 57 touchdowns to 19 interceptions over the past two seasons, moving to wide receiver? Jackson, the ultimate source, says it never happened. "I'm strictly a quarterback". According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Dolphins have granted Landry and his representation permission to seek and facilitate a trade.

Jackson, who had 7,203 passing yards over the past two seasons, was surprised by reports suggesting National Football League teams would request him to work out with wide receivers due to his speed.

Jackson ran the Erhardt-Perkins offense under coach Bobby Petrino at Louisville. But Wyoming's Josh Allen, seen as a surefire first-rounder, finished his college career at 56.2 percent.

- Alabama's Calvin Ridley, a Fort Lauderdale native, is considered among the top wide receiver prospects available in this draft. "No, nooo. Like I said before, I'm a quarterback".

Jackson is scheduled to report to the combine on Friday afternoon. Jackson's recent measurements still make him seem like a QB. "Wherever I can go as a quarterback, that's where I'm going". "I don't even know where it comes from".

Jackson did admit that suggesting that he should play a position other than he's played his entire life is somewhat disrespectful, considering all of his accomplishments as a quarterback. Lots of people wanted him to be a defensive back or a wideout.

As of Saturday morning, no known meeting has taken place between Gang Green and the Louisville quarterback at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis. "I think I sense pressure very well ..."

"I'm mobile, I can hit any target on the field", Jackson said.

Jackson has met with the Giants already here.

Teams are asking themselves whether these guys can be the next Carson Wentz, who ignited the Philadelphia Eagles' Super Bowl run in just his second season before getting hurt and rooting on Nick Foles from the sideline.

"You know, things happen", Jackson said about that game and falling below the 60 mark. He said that it took place in the indoor bubble at Auburn, there was electronic tape at the start that triggered the clock, and that there was a laser at the finish line of the 40-yard dash.
