Lamar Jackson: I'm a quarterback, plain and simple

Josh Allen threw some impressive deep balls

"Whoever likes me at quarterback, that's where I'm going". "I've just got to show off my arm 'cause that's where they're doubting me", Jackson said, joking that he feels "like [New Orleans's] Drew Brees" after widening his throwing stance.

It's fine to think Jackson's raw and needs further developing, but to suggest he play another position is a veiled attempt to stereotype quarterbacks.

So there will be no 40-yard dash or broad jump or high jump or any of the other stuff quarterbacks are asked to do.

Jackson has met with the Giants already here.

Apple plans to develop high-end headphones
There are also concerns that this new product could end up cannibalizing sales from the Beats brand that's also owned by Apple. In addition to that, the report says the new Apple headphones were scheduled to launch sometime at the end of this year.

Rather than focusing on what he can do as a quarterback, the rhetoric at the combine has centred on if Jackson should be playing an entirely different position.

"No wildcat", Jackson said. It's not the Dolphins with Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams. "I thought I did", Jackson, a two-time ACC player of the year, said, laughing again. The Patriots are expected to pick a quarterback at some point in the 2018 NFL Draft [VIDEO] who they can develop as an eventual replacement for the 40-year-old Brady, who plans to play until he's 45 years old.

Jackson has passed for 9,043 yards and 69 touchdowns, while rushing for 4,132 yards and 50 touchdowns during his three seasons at Louisville.

But other talent evaluators disagree.

"I'm a quarterback", said Jackson, per Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com.

The consensus is that Jackson is an exceptional athlete who can make an immediate impact at the next level, but the debate rages about where he would fit best. "If there's anyone who would turn that franchise around, it'd be me", he said. "It just motivates me to go out there and show my ability", Jackson told reporters. I love the game with a passion.

Jackson, though, was much more explosive than Allen was in his drops, consistently getting 7 yards deep on five-step drills whereas Allen made up for his poorer footwork with his superior arm strength. For now, though, he's focused on the present, and that involves convincing National Football League teams that he's the best quarterback on the board.
