UofL FOOTBALL | Lamar Jackson: "I'm a quarterback."

03/02/2018 05:21 PM

Former Louisville quarterback is in Indianapolis this weekend for the 2018 NFL Combine.

There has been speculation that Jackson would be better off as a wide receiver at the next level. He addressed that speculation on Friday afternoon:

Jackson went on to even make himself more clear, answering, “I’m a quarterback,” to another question on the subject.

Jackson also discussed what it’s like taking part in the NFL Combine:

Jackson has no agent as of Friday as well. He spoke about why he doesn’t have one:

He also said that his mom is serving as his “manager.”

Jackson set numerous school records while at UofL, and as a result, received plenty of national awards, including the 2016 Heisman Trophy.
