It really doesn't make Jackson a better prospect just a more sexy one.
Yes, I do think its ridiculous to compare Jackson to Williams as a prospect. That's why I didn't do it. You
noted his scouting report weaknesses and 40 time and I simply pointed out that they were similar to Williams'. You discount his small school production and think he's a day two pick; I think he's a third rounder, maybe OUR third rounder is we acquire one and don't sign a FA WR.
For the record, there is NO other small school prospect with Jackson's hands, leaping ability and size/speed ratio. Yes, he's raw, but he demonstrated at the Senior bowl practices that he could compete with the big boys and everyone acknowledges that he is a monster. Three years ago, he would've been badly downgraded because he doesn't fit the WR mold. That won't happen this year.
