Haven't been around here lately since it's baseball season. Sorry guys.
Since the draft is getting close and I love the draft, I wanted to throw a name out for y'all:
Vincent Jackson, WR, Northern Colorado
He's 6'4 3/4", 241 lbs, and runs a legit 4.55 (official time). That size/speed is impressive, especially for a WR. Obviously he'd create tremendous matchup problems out there. The problem with him, is that he's raw (in aspects of the game that need polish, like technique, routes, footwork) and inconsistent. He played against a lower level of competition. However, the physical abilities are all there, including soft hands. Matt Jones is getting a lot of pub and this guy could be just as good. A player pretty similar to him, believe it or not, is Mike Williams. Same big body, decent speed to size ratio. However, Williams is obviously proven on the large stage and younger. However, Jackson potentially
could be a player of similar ability. I believe he's around a late Day 1 pick right now, so the value is certainly there. A possible comparison to him is an even bigger Terrell Owens, because of what he can do. We'll also see how quick he is. Receivers have to make quick cuts in routes to make catches and it's obviously harder for a bigger guy to do so. If he can do that, the package is going to be pretty damn impressive.
Like Williams (and Jones) he may end up at TE, where he'd be a huge matchup threat (this would obviously be developmental since all aspects of playing TE are entirely different from the mindset of play WR), but I think most teams would like to try him out at WR first.
"The son of Bobby Bowden once again proved he's as predictable as a Julia Roberts' movie.
And upon further review, just as sappy, too."
