    well at WR, you're only trying to outrun 1 guy, 2 tops, not 7/8

    Anyone who see's this Highlight clip of Jackson has to say this guy is world class. He is a polished receiver who unlike Ted Ginn was not even the best receiver at ohio state. (Gonzalez was the top WR)

    Jackson is 6'0 180 with 4.29 40 w/ Hester type return ability. Ithink he is the next Steve Smith. That said I don't think he will even be available when the Cowboys use the cleveland Browns Pick

    Check this out...... This will make you believe!!!!

    Harrison is at 180. I have nothing aginst Jackson but when talking 1st rd pick yes I would be concerned with have a smallish WR with that pick.

    He seems big enough to me. WRs don't really take much of a pounding unless they are constantly going over the middle, but Jackson's not that type of player. I haven't seen him enough to make concrete judgements, but I think he'd be an explosive weapon to add to the offense and special teams. As long as he runs decent routes and can get off the line of scrimmage, his weight won't concern me. Plus I'm sure he can add weight to his frame once he gets to a professional training program. He'll probably be considerably bigger by the combine.

    I like Jackson but not as sold on him as a 1st rd pick as some other WR in the draft.

    if you watch Marvin Harrison play, you will see that he's hardly ever asked to run crossing routes, and he gets down, or runs out of bounds, once he catches the football, if a team uses Jackson in the same way, and he committs himself to limiting the hits he takes, he will be fine

    He's awfully skinny, and to me it doesn't matter if he artificially bulks up for a week of weigh-ins.

    Doesn't mean he can't succeed, though... What's his work ethic like? How are his hands? Is he tough and durable?

    If he is available when we pick I think we gotta take him, but I don't think there is a chance in hell he will stick around that long. To bad though...:(
