    Agent: Tarvaris Jackson popular pick

    Posted on Thu, May. 04, 2006

    St. Paul Pioneer Press


    The agent for newly drafted Vikings quarterback Tarvaris Jackson said two NFL personnel executives told him that they planned to take Jackson early in the third round.

    "After the draft, there were two clubs that expressed disappointment and were mad they didn't get him," Joel Segal said. "They were planning to take (Jackson) very high in the third round, and were lamenting the fact that the Vikings beat them."

    Segal's other clients include Reggie Bush, Michael Vick, Darren Sharper and DeAngelo Hall.

    The Vikings traded their two third-round picks to the Pittsburgh Steelers to get the final pick of the second round. On Saturday, Vikings then-vice president Fran Foley said the team made the move because it didn't want to risk not getting Jackson.

    Vikings minicamp starts May 13.

    great, maybe the Vikings really are onto something. of course it is his agent so obviously he's going to talk him up...nevertheless, maybe the Vikes did make a great move, we won't know for about 2 or 3 years. i have a good feeling about this guy though.

    Some light into the Tarvaris situation.

    This may explain why the Vikes made the move for Mr. Jackson so early in the draft.

    I like the pick, if he was a guy that you really wanted why not trade up to get him.

    I like the pick too. He was a sleeper with raw talent that I bet several clubs would like to have picked up. He may or may not be the next superstar, but I think he was a good risk to take.

    Yeah...well if Segal is SUCH a great agent WHY did he end up costing Reggie Bush the top spot in the draft???

    The dude is just a self-aggrandizing, pompous, lying self-promoter...who just wants to make his client look better than he really is!

    The ONLY proof that I will require is his performance on the field...NOTHING his weenie agent says will make me think differently about this pick UNTIL then!!!
