    Actually, I would take Pittman, Bush, or Booker over Jackson, but I explained the decision in the scout report, i.e. fits ZBS etc.

    Exactly, but crtics will say they are both reaches considering the rankings. I am inclined to wait to judge this entire draft class. ESPN likes both picks so far.

    Our next pick is 78 folks. Time for a break, cheese, wine and company. Good luck.

    I'll be back tomorrow...if tomorrow ever comes. Great forum!

    I think fans pay way too much attention to ESPN and other sports media on rankings of players. They all seem to focus on players from major football colleges and not by pure individual talent. Scouts get paid to check out how a player can play apart from the strengths and weaknesses of their teams. I remember two years ago they were going on and on about this Michigan safety, I forget his name, but people on this board were shouting for him to be chosen and when Nick Collins, who ESPN had as undrafted, was picked in the second round people were angry. Fact is that michigan safety didn't get drafted and isn't in the NFL and Nick Collins is a starter. Showing that perhaps the teams scouts know more than the media and we should give the players a chance to play before bad mouthing their pick. Media ratings mean nothing.

    The fact that "ESPN likes both picks so far." scares me more than you can imagine.

    Justin Harrell was an average pick...Jackson well they could of done better Tony Hunt or Antonio Pittman (Hunt especially) are better than Jackson. Look at the stats Jackson didn't ever hit over 1,000 a senior season might of been better for him.

    Strengths:
    Has adequate height and pretty good bulk...Has very good hands...Is more quick than fast...Tough, strong and physical...Great leaper...Will work the middle of the field...Aggressive with excellent ball skills...Can contribute on special teams in a number of roles...Gamer who'll step up when it counts...Still has some potential.

    Weaknesses:
    Lacks elite timed speed...Will probably struggle to separate...He's not a vertical or deep threat...Won't do much after the catch...Only an average return man...Plays too tall and slows down to cut...Concentration is key...Is he a one year wonder?

    Notes:
    Emerging prospect who really had a breakout season as a senior in 2006...Can also long snap...Has steadily moved up draft boards...He profiles as a backup but could be more...Still underrated but he could be a pleasant surprise for someone.

    No I think when the QB situation comes up we'll find a solution

    Harrell is not bad...Leon Hall would of been nice, Gred Olsen, or Robert Meachem

    Yeah for the past few weeks I was thinking Olsen at that pick, but when you have a potential number one pic fall into your lap like that you have to take it, franchise qbs only come around once in awhile, and I dont think aaron rodgers will be one.

    I'd have to think TE Patrick would be the pick at number 89, we haven't addressed that position at all.

    Understand the fact that Nebraska had a crap O line, whilst OSU had a great offensive line.
    Don't look at the stats, that means merely nothing.

    For TE I'd say take Scott Chandler in the 4th or 5th


    ....(and Drew Tate for the QB problem)....Ok maybe not

    Last I heard about Moss was offering a conditional 4th? That's a head scratcher. 2008 4th?

    Strengths: A tall, well-built strong safety prospect with exceptional straight-line speed for his size. He has the size potential to match up as an in-the-box strong safety type in the NFL. Fills hard versus the run and flashes some power upon contact as a tackler. He occasionally will make his presence known over the middle in coverage. Shows good closing burst when the ball is in the air. Also displays good ball skills. He has been a durable player throughout his career.

    Weaknesses: Former outside linebacker with some athletic limitations. Does he fit as an outside linebacker or strong safety in the NFL? He is high-cut and shows some stiffness in his hips. He has excellent straight-line speed but will struggle to change directions in space. He does not show the quick-twitch athleticism to match up one-on-one versus NFL slot receivers. He must also continue to improve his angles in run support. He can play out of control at times.

    Overall: Rouse appeared in all 13 games in 2003 as a true freshman and made 46 total tackles and three tackles for loss. He saw action in all 13 games in 2004, registering 37 total tackles, including 2.5 tackles for loss at outside linebacker. Rouse started all 13 contests at strong safety in 2005, finishing the season with 77 total tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, four interceptions, five pass breakups, one fumble recovery, and one forced fumble. In 2006 he appeared in all 13 games, with 10 starts, and recorded 57 total tackles, two tackles for loss, one forced fumble, and one interception.

    Rouse possesses an exceptional combination of size and speed, and he showed flashes of playmaking ability at the collegiate level. However, while he has first-round tools, Rouse is an underachiever and a positional misfit from an NFL perspective. He doesn't play the game with enough aggressiveness or toughness to project as a linebacker and he makes too many mistakes in coverage to be trusted as a safety at this point. In our opinion, Rouse is too much of a boom-or-bust prospect to draft any earlier than the third round.

    Well I watched his video He looks great...but why does the pack need a LB Poppinga, Hawk, and Barnett worked great. Overall though I like him.
