Draft Profile

arrowheadaddict with the pick:

Not only is Jackson one of the better underclassmen and potentially the best wide receiver in this class, the speedster is also that once-a-year Devin Hester/Tedd Gin-type return man. With Joey Galloway--a player who was a lot like Jackson coming out of Ohio State--aging, Jackson will make the perfect understudy. He will make an immediate impact as one of the NFL's best return specialists, and will eventually become the No. 1 target of all Bucs' QBs.

We felt that he was less risky than Malcolm Kelly and his knees, more proven than Devin Thomas, and less of a project than James Hardy. Jackson was the No. 1 WR on our board.

If there is a Galloway or Steve Smith to be found in the 2008 NFL Draft, it's Jackson. He may be small, but there wasn't even a small bit of hesitation in making this pick. The Bucs expect big things from DeSean.
