Lamar Jackson wanted every single reporter listening in Indianapolis to know this Friday: he is a quarterback. "Whoever likes me at quarterback that's where I'm going," he told reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine. "That's strictly my position." When asked if he would try out wide receiver if a team asked him to do so he was succinct. "No sir, I'm a quarterback." The questions about Jackson possibly taking some reps at wide receiver stem from a report Friday from NFL Media saying multiple teams are interested in seeing the 2016 Heisman Trophy winner split out wide. Jackson said he had not been asked by any team to work out as a split end. He also dispelled the notion he could be used as a type of single-wing quarterback who focused mainly on running and came out of the game on passing plays.
