    QB Tavaris Jackson

    With the 64th pick in the 2nd round (from the Steelers), the Minnesota Vikings pick...


    Tavaris Jackson

    6’1 221lbs 40yd dash-4.75 Alabama St. Projection-6th Rd
    Positive:
    Jackson originally played for DI Arkansas before being buried on the depth chart and transferring to ASU. Jackson is an athlete he runs well and he throws well. He also throws well on the run. He is very accurate and has the arm strength to hit the deep out routes. Jackson is incredibly competitive and will work on anything he can to try and improve his game. He has huge upside and untapped potential.

    Negative:
    Jackson’s mechanics could use some serious work. He comes from a small school in DII and he never really needed to learn how to use proper footwork there. He tends to lock onto WR’s who are his primary targets and has shown inconsistency from drive to drive. He as of right now get


    According to Ron Jaworski on ESPN2, this dudes got a big gun of an arm and a knowledge and understanding of coverages.

    Projected 6th round?

    WTF?

    I had to turn off the draft but were Croyle and Whitehurst still on the board?

    All I know is this man has a gun! He has a huge arm man, I think Childress can develop him into a steal!

    God Damnit!

    Winston was still on the board. I'm really not happy with our picks. I like Griffin, but he won't make an impact as a backup. I'm still unsure about Greenway.

    And we take this asshole instead of Omar Jacobs? wtf.

    Yeah, I like this guy. Hopefully he can learn a few things under Brad for a while and be our future carrier.
    I've got a good feeling about this guy.

    I like the huge upside, and even moreso, the incredible competitiveness, but this is definitely not something I expected. Guess we'll just have to trust the FO.
