Louisville QB Lamar Jackson shoots down WR move

  • Lamar Dalton pretty much. Dalton

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. It appears he may know exactly what he was talking about when it comes to how some teams would evaluate Jackson. I'm not going to be at wide receiver at all tomorrow. This includes earning the Heisman Trophy award in 2016 along with back-to-back ACC Player of the Year awards and ACC Offensive Player of the Year honors in each of the last two years. 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. Even though Jackson has never played the position.

"... I think if he's going to make it, he's going to make it as a quarterback in the right situation".

Asked about the report Friday morning, Jackson said, "That's insane". I'm here at the combine now. I'm happy to be here. "I've just got to show off my arm - because that's where they're doubting me".

Only 13 people used that Delta NRA discount
Delta, one of the state's largest employers, would have been the primary beneficiary of the exemption. Nathan Deal has blamed election-year posturing for the Delta controversy.

Jackson was extremely likeable in his 15-minute interview with reporters. "You draft him, and wherever they're playing and used to playing ... that's usually where they play the best".

"No teams have asked me to play WR".

"I can break pressure and keep my eyes down the field", Jackson said, asked what he does well as a QB.

Facebook U-turns on controversial change to its news feed
In October, Facebook began testing Explore Feed with users in Sri Lanka, Guatemala, Bolivia, Cambodia, Serbia and Slovakia. Facebook is ending its short-lived (and misguided) experiment with the alternative news feed feature called "Explore".

"I'm mobile, I can hit any target on the field", he said. You know I love DeVante Parker and those guys out there - Kenyan Drake, [Kenny] Stills. I love to put the ball in receivers' hands. "It may look like it, but I'm not". He listed Brady and Cam Newton - "Superheroes", he called them - as two quarterbacks he loves to emulate and watch and learn from.

And wherever Jackson gets drafted, he expects to be the signal-caller. He is not hiring an agent.

Added Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome: "I don't know what other teams think about him, but on our board he's a quarterback". "You're going to get the salary you're going to get [depending on where you're drafted]". Just in case his 40 year old QB decides to hang up his helmet for good. Jackson said. "But hey, they're going to say what they're going to say".

USA envoy's retirement may hurt efforts to solve N. Korea crisis
State Department officials have also grown frustrated at times by the White House's approach to career diplomats like Yun. Washington has still not nominated an ambassador to South Korea, 13 months into the Trump administration.

Jackson was good-natured about the criticism of his game, but he made it clear during his 15-minute podium session that he has no intention of fulfilling any request to work out at a different position or being anything but a signal caller in the NFL.
