    I like it. Jackson's a player. It would be kinda hard to pass up Jimmy Williams though, but I think we need to go offense early in the draft. We just neglected it for far too long.

    I found it difficult to believe that kiper projected Youboty ahead of Williams.

    Jackson is, just look at the numbers. Caught a ton of balls at Florida and posted a blazing time at the combine. He's got the ideal body as well. This might not be a great class for wideouts, but Holmes and Jackson both are worth a first rounder. Who at 18 is more disserving of a pick? I could understand if we were top ten, but at 18 we could get a legitimate weapon for our offense.

    Chad Jackson played in a dink and dunk offense that inflated his catches.

    10 yard average?

    Same offense that Alex Smith came from.

    Is this Kipers latest update? Because already this is outdated due to what has happened in Free Agency. I would pass on Jackson. In that line up I would rather we take Jimmy Williams, Kamerion Wimbly or Bobby Carpenter.

    That works both ways. His offense shows that he has good hands, but if hurt his yards per catch. If he played in a more wide open offense his yards per catch would be higher, but he would have less catches. If you look at his speed, hands, and size, you can see he's got all the physical ability to be a big play threat. He just wasn't used in that role at Florida. You put him on USC and he's probably putting up number comparable, if not better, than Mike Williams did.

    Where the hell is Manny Lawson? I guess he's going to be like D. Ware, and shoot up everyone's draft board the closer we get to the draft. I remember a month before last year's draft, most people didn't know who Ware was, then he goes #12 on draft day. Manny is a faster version of Ware. I hope he's there for us @ #18, but I believe he'll go a lot higher than some of these prognosticators are sloting him. JMO.

    We got our ILB in Ayodele, which mitigates our need for Carpenter.
    If we sign TO or Walker, I don't think we'll take a WR in the first.
    Lawson is the potential OLB playmaker that we need.
    I don't think Lawson lasts til the second round.
    I like Holmes and Jackson and Carpenter, but Lawson is a freak.
