    We are old at this position. He has been most impressive in workouts. I would like to see him or a stud linebacker.

    He'll be gone by pick 15, Eagles or Broncos.

    The problem with Jackson is that he's not considered a speedster. If we take a WR in the 1st it better be somebody who stretches the field and runs a sub 4.4, 40. An impact player is what we need. Jackson's measurables remind me of Travis Taylor

    Unless we pick some undersized LB or some RB or something we really don't need, then I'm okay with the pick.

    I just can't see Parcells taking a WR with 18.

    Jackson ran one of the fastest 40 yard dashes at the combine at a 4.32

    I think Chad Jackson goes to the Broncos at pick #15 or the Dolphins at pick #16. Whichever team doesn't get Jackson will probably take Santonio Holmes.

    i didn't know that. here's a summary of his scouting report.

    Chad Jackson
    Height: 6-1
    Weight: 212
    40 Speed: 4.42*
    Position: Wide Receiver
    College: Florida
    Final Grade: I 6.4 PR


    GM JR Scouting LLC Grading Scale/Key



    SUMMARY
    Jackson is a junior who came out early for the 2006 NFL Draft, and because of the lack of game-changing receivers in this year’s draft, he definitely made the right decision. He is a good athlete, who is extremely smooth and fluid in his routes, and he consistently has shown quickness out of his cuts to get separation. While he lacks top-end playing speed, he accelerates to full speed quickly, and once he gets to full speed, he has deceptive speed and can get separation deep down the field. He is a smart receiver who sets up his routes well, and he sells his fakes strong to turn defenders around. He has very good hands, does a good job catching the ball with his hands, and can twist and adjust to make tough catches on off-target passes. He is more slippery and elusive running after the catch than you'd expect, and he has the strength and balance to run through arm tackles and keep his feet vs. grab tackles. He also offers the added bonus of being a solid punt returner. Overall, Chad is not a game-changing speed receiver, but he has all the tools and competitiveness to become a very good starting receiver in a season or two and will consitently get open, make all the catches, and make plays running after the catch. He will also contribute returning punts early in his career.

    I think those are the 2 teams most likely to acquire him as well.

    Jackson has 80 yard tds in both his last two seasons. His average per reception dropped his last season because his new coach ran a short passing scheme, but he did catch 88 for the year in that scheme.

    He is explosive and can change direction much quicker than that profile on nfl.com says.

    I saw him at a college all star challenge and he looked to have great hands and looked more fluid, faster and quicker than any other wr prospects there that day which included Sinorice Moss.

    He's the only WR I'd consider in round 1. Could develop into a #1 receiver in a year or 2. Size, speed, hands are all good. But he's probably gone before we pick.

    I still feel we'll take a LB with our first pick. If, in the highly unlikely event that Parcells would consider taking a WR this year with our first pick, which I seriously doubt he will, but if he did, I think he would/should take Jackson over Holmes, IMO.

    I think Denver is taking a receiver early on - esp. since A. Lelie is looking to leave . . . .

    I doubt we give up on Burnett so easily. LB in the second round maybe.

    We probably will go OT if Justice slides or trade down and take a CB/FS combo type of player like Jason Allen or Antonio Cromartie who can split time with Glenn as a nickle back as well as serve as a backup FS.

    I wouldn't mind Jackson or Holmes though. You can NEVER have enough depth or playmakers at the WR position. Especially when your two starting WR's are closer to 34 than 30. I'm not even going into how long it for most WR's to develop since most of posters on this board are pretty damn sharpe. :)

    If we took either of the two first round receivers at 18, I would be very disappointed.

    You'd feel better if we take CJ or SH and Terry Glenn were to be lost for the season.

    Instead of T.O. being double covered every play and hoping Crayton could get it done, we'd have a #3 with talent and deep speed lining up in the slot to help ease the pressure on those two.

    Would you rather have to depend on Crayton AND Copper in case of injury? I wouldn't.
