CRAWFORD | Lamar Jackson, quarterback, peppered with wide receiver questions at National Football League combine

The narrative that Jackson can't be an National Football League signalcaller has taken all the predictable steps up to this point, so we shouldn't be surprised teams are asking for a sneak peak at that possible future reality.

It is also worth noting that the Chicago Bears are reportedly one possible landing spot for the veteran wide out, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

The throng leaned forward as one.

Guess we can end that whole wide receiver debate for Lamar Jackson.

"I didn't want to show it out here, they've been talking about receiver and stuff like that so I didn't feel I should do it", Jackson said. Having Carson Wentz in place as the franchise quarterback as well as Nick Foles as his backup is a pretty good deal for Philadelphia.

Former NFL quarterback turned analyst for NFL Network and former Bills and Colts general manager Bill Polian completely ignored Jackson's passing skill en route to labeling him a wide receiver. But hours later, Jackson said he was "shocked" by the news because "no teams have asked me to play wide receiver". But surrounding him with talent which includes WR Keenan Allen, TE Hunter Henry, the dynamic RB duo of Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler will only set Jackson up for success shortly and help win over fans in the city of Los Angeles.

For instance, the vaccine is 67 percent effective against the H1N1 flu, which was the 2009 pandemic flu and is still around. Thirty percent of flu tests performed during that time were positive, and 61 percent of those were for influenza B.

Lamar Jackson, a Heisman Trophy victor, is being ranked by most experts as being the 5th or 6th best QB in the draft this spring.

Graziano agrees: "You consider yourself a quarterback, and you've been a good one - be a quarterback".

Then, another question about wide receiver. "But I know I can take it to a whole other level".

Quarterbacks Josh Rosen and Lamar Jackson have walked into the 2018 NFL Combine with questions marks surrounding them, questions that are outside of their control. "Wherever I can go as a quarterback, that's where I'm going". Adding, "you know, that's strictly my position". "I don't know where that even comes from".

The list of mobile quarterbacks that played a significant role at the QB position while Lynn was with the Jets included Geno Smith, Michael Vick and Tim Tebow. Lots of people wanted him to be a defensive back or a wideout. I think he's earned that right. "I can hit any target on the field". Jackson said. "But hey, they're going to say what they're going to say".
