As for whether he's ready to step in now and be a rookie starter at - no doubt about it - quarterback, Jackson said: "If I have a chance to compete [immediately], that's really where I want to go to".
Outside of Landry, Stills and Parker no other Dolphin caught 50 passes last season, with tight end Julius Thomas finishing 2017 with 41 catches. "I'm not going to be a wide receiver at all".
"Yeah, I'm not much on that", Reid said (when asked his thoughts on other people saying Jackson is best-suited as a WR).
More than one team has asked Jackson to try the new position at the NFL Combine.
Along with racist categorizations of what positions players are suited for, another thing the National Football League has moved past is the simplicity that would allow someone who has never been a wide receiver to segue smoothly into that role at the game's highest level. He participated in all of the throwing drills, but his decision to partcipated in the 40 left some analysts curious. But the Broncos own the fifth pick in the draft and this group of quarterbacks is unusually deep and top-heavy.
The 2016 Heisman Trophy victor is at the NFL Scouting Combine, which is an annual week-long showcase of the league's next generation of talent at the Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis, ahead of the draft in April.
So what will he tell a team that asks him to switch positions?
To take full advantage of Jackson's strengths - his remarkable open-field elusiveness and speed resulted in over 4,000 rushing yards in three seasons at Louisville - the Patriots would undoubtedly tweak their offensive approach. "The guys do their job, I just do mine", Jackson said.
The justification for such a ridiculous assertion was that Jackson came from a simple offense and his slight build make ideally suited as a receiver, a position he's never played in his life. If it's the Browns or Giants asking, then one can understand why Jackson would be a bit upset.
"You know, things happen", Jackson said about that game and falling below the 60 mark.
Since that report, Jackson made his feelings well known. He's going to take a big cut, and I feel like I deserve it right now. "I just have to show off my arm because that's where they're doubting me at".
