I watched him a bit last year and this year. I know there is talk that he should possibly be a safety, but he played corner much better than safety in college. He played corner fresh and soph year, and played well. The team asked him to move to safety his junior year and he did, but he struggled a bit. He went back to corner his senior year and looked good.

Some draft site said that teams only completed a total of 15 passes on him as a senior (playing corner).

Perfect fit for the Chiefs since he played some safety in college. :thumb:

He's gonna fall because of his 40 time. He's a good football player IMO, 40-time be damned.

Maybe he'll fall to the 2nd round. :hmmm:

I think he ran a 4.59 about an hour ago.

It's in another thread here...he ran a 4.59.

I think the 40 time is overrated. If he is a good football player, he should be a good choice to draft.

Pats will probably take him if he is still on the board at 32.

I've watched him for the last few years... I think he is the best all around corner in the draft. I would have NO PROBLEM with us drafting him with our first round pick... and would do cartwheels if we got him in the second round... OR traded down and got him later in the first.

hopefully we've learned our lesson by now: draft players not numbers....

Are you a Michigan fan?

There's no reason for his stock to have dropped this past year. Draft guys, like Kiper, like smaller corners who look good in drills.

probably making too much of what I saw at the combine, but he just seemed head and shoulders above the crowd...it was only drills, but he was smooth and looked like much more of an athlete than his peers.

Are you a Michigan fan?I believe he is. And so am I. And I agree with him. I'd take Jackson in a heartbeat. Even at 15. I think he's that good.

Yeah.. so I've watched him quite alot... and I can't see ANY reason for his stock to drop when he played GREAT this year and was predicted to be a top 3 (if not the outright #1) corner in the draft. He has been talked about for the last 3 years as being one of the best... I would much rather have a guy like him than someone I only starting hearing about around draft time.

I would only be happy with drafting him IF he changed his last name to Wayans

As an Iowa fan, I certainly have alot of respect for him. I think he's good enough to take at #15, but I don't think we'd need to (I've thought he would go mid 20's), so I haven't really thought about it.

With his 40 time and the number of CB's coming out, it's possible he could drop even farther. He could be the steal of the draft in the early 2nd round, IMO.

BTW, you don't visit any other message boards do you?

or does he "play faster" than his timed 40 speed?

4.59 seems awfully slow for a top-notch cb...

i would worry that if he really is that slow, he might have some trouble adjusting to the level of play (read speed as well as talent) in the nfl, even if he looked real good in college...

of course, i would be happy with any cb not named Mc-tee...

He plays faster as does Priest who ran a 4.7 at the combine and a guy like Drew Bennett who ran a 4.62 but was able to burn by our secondary last year.

of course, i would be happy with any cb not named Mc-tee...I think that he'll end up being the best corner out of this draft class, regardless of his 40 time. We're not talking about a guy who looked good at some mid-major, while there's still a big adjustment from college to pro, he's played against the some of the best college talent for four years. Personally, I think too much stock is given on measurables and times, the guy can simply play the game. Whatever 'it' is, I think he has it. I think he's a guy that nine or ten years from now we'll be talking about the same way people talk about another all-world Michigan corner who used to play for the patsies...

Now, obviously, I'm an unabashed Michigan homer, although that doesn't generally color the way I look at players.

Same here. I would love it, if the Chiefs drafted MJ, but not just because I'm a Michigan fan. This guy has proven himself on the field. He is one heck of a player. No complaints here if we got him.
