I Know Who Should Draft Lamar Jackson

NFL Draft 2018: 5 Teams that could use Lamar Jackson

NFL Draft 2018: 5 Teams that could use Lamar Jackson

Jackson is scheduled to speak with reporters at the National Football League combine on Friday afternoon. Michael Vick has been used as a comparison for his skill set.

"He's a great dude, I love hanging around him and being with him, and whoever gets him is extremely lucky", Quessenberry said. He has a lawyer, who will represent him in contract negotiations, and his mother is acting as his "manager".

While Jackson didn't take part in the 40-yard dash at the Combine, he did say he was going to run it at his Louisville pro day.

"I can't speak for the media", Jackson said. If the requests have been made, why not simply say, "Some of them asked me to do it, and I told them no". He listed Brady and Cam Newton - "Superheroes", he called them - as two quarterbacks he loves to emulate and watch and learn from. When you have a guy who can move around a little bit like Lamar, you make a defense play 11-on-11. I think he's earned that right. I love to put the ball in other receivers' hands.

"A lot of times you get tied up in the emotions of the situation and where he is".

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.

Here's the real question: Why would Jackson lie about this? Jackson has his flaws, but he is one of the most electrifying playmakers in this year's draft. "It's just more motivation to go out there and show my ability".

"I'm mobile", Jackson said.

As far as Lamar Jackson is concerned, there should be no confusion about his position. He's not bench-pressing even though he grabbed his biceps, smiled and assured, "I've been working out, 216 (pounds), you know?"

Among the teams he had met with at the combine: the Buffalo Bills, Chicago Bears, Pittsburgh Steelers, Miami Dolphins, New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles. I can lead my team, I feel like I'm a field general when I'm out there.

Whatever the reason (s) for this, it's a prime example of why Jackson needs to hire an agent.

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

NBC NFL draft writer Josh Norris has a pretty awesome breakdown of Lamar Jackson tape.
