    1) I assume you're talking about me, since I'm about the only one thinking he has to be considered... but I have seen Jackson play in person.

    2) I think he will probably go first round. I'm not expecting us to consider him with our first pick, assuming that's in the top 10.

    not really you. im talking about the people who havent seen him that are going by what the cal website says. then u seeing him in person u know that those numbers are embelished. has he's skinny, but really isnt any taller then say terry glenn. can he add weight? maybe, but not 20 lbs. maybe 8-10 at the most.

    Maybe it's all a fake. Maybe it's CGI staged by NASA at Roswell. :cool:

    Dude, I know you've got common sense. Just use it.

    Ok your a Jackson H8R we get that.

    now, he is not the tallest or the heaviest but when he runs a 40 at the combine that will all go out the window.

    4.25 impresses people that way.

    The NFL does use CGI though, did you think it was a coincidence that Barry Sanders started to shake like his pants were on fire around the mid 90's??

    nah man the dot com boom boosted CGI so much they couldn't resist.

    40 times don't mean everything, but they do mean something.

    Common sense? So you stating that you can tell how tall a guy is from one camera shot is using common sense? And depending on that rather than every single piece of information written on the guy? If common sense is believe what you see on TV despite being told otherwise 99% of the time, then I guess I don't have any.

    I'm just saying, college websites routinely lie about players' sizes. Once a team website puts up measurements, then all the other sites just copy what they have. Teams do this to help their own players. It would help DeSean tremendously if he was 6' instead of 5'9-1/2" (or whatever he is). There were a handful of players this year that were 2-3 inches shorter than their previously listed heights. It happens every year.

    Of course we know Randy Moss's real height. He was measured at the Combine. Moss could be standing on a stool. Or DeSean could be walking on his knees in that shot, but common sense tells me that none of those things are likely to be occurring. And it's not camera angle -- they're standing right next to each other. He's just tiny. If you don't have a problem with him being tiny (as you've said before) that's fine. I do.

    Maybe his playmaking ability can overcome that. But Parcells told Ireland one very nice piece of advice -- to limit your margin for error.
