Jordan Lynch open to changing position

2014 NFL Draft prospect Jordan Lynch admits that he would be open to changing position.

Draft prospect Jordan Lynch has said that he would be open to changing positions in the NFL.

The former Northern Illinois Huskies quarterback finished third in voting for the 2013 Heisman Trophy, completing 6,030 passing yards, 3,735 rushing yards and 91 combined touchdowns in the last two college seasons.

The 23-year-old told reporters: "Kind of in my head, I'd like to stay on offense, running back, slot receiver, I feel like I need the ball in my hands. I'm a playmaker.

"Some teams, there's some questions whether I can play safety or not. And, I mean, that would be great and everything, but I feel like offense [is better for me].

"I started playing quarterback my freshman year of high school, and I ran the triple option in high school. So I had to prove again in college that I could throw. And that kind of keeps being the theme, can I throw, can I be a quarterback? It worked out this far. And, like I said, been proving people wrong ever since, and I gotta prove them wrong again here at this Combine."

Lynch is taking part in the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis this weekend.
