Just saw it on ESPN news. Sorry I don't have any links. I think he would be a great pick if he were to fall to the 2nd round.

personally I think he could be in the second round. I think it might end up like the running back class of 04. Everyone projected high but if I remember correctly there were only 2 taken in the first. Jackson and Jones.

do you guys see us grabbing him in the 1st? I think we would be better off getting a different player. However, if he fell to us in the 2nd (which he probably wont), I would take him in a heartbeat...

He would be a good No. 3 WR, hes got good speed and good hands, and since Saban has seen him in action we might have a good shot at him.

What round do you guys think this kid is gunna go in?

Skeet84
01-06-2006, 03:32 AM
I would say 2nd. I did see a Draft where he was going to KC in the 1st. SO I ma gunna say 2nd then again I think he could slip on draft day

Motion
01-06-2006, 03:43 AM
With this weak WR class, no way he goes any later than the 2nd.

Skeet84
01-06-2006, 04:27 AM
He could Drop I did not say he would I mean look at ppl who have dropped. I honestly think Jackson could be a Late 1st rounder.

Do you think the Dolphins are thinking of drafting a reciever in the 1st round? Jackson will most likely be a 1st round pick, and the kid has a lot of talent. I'm wondering if Saban feels that his QB (Cutler), will be gone by the time the Dolphins r on the clock in the first. I personally don't think we should draft a reciever in the 1st if that's their plan, I would much rather see us go grab a S or LB. We now see the Steelers had great success picking a SS with the #16 pick, Polamalu is one of the best defensive players in the league now, we sure could use a guy like Huff or Bing.

I would think we'd go priority wise QB, then S, then LB, then CB, DT, then WR. Maybe Saban's just making backup plans for his backup plans. You can never be too ready.

01-25-2006, 03:14 AM
I think we are just doing our duty and exploring all options at this point. Saban doesn't like to cut short any corner, besides its too early to know for sure if jackson if a first round guy, he could easily fall to the 2nd.(chambers in 01')

FinNasty
01-25-2006, 03:22 AM
I think Saban is just doing what he is always doing... being extremely thorough... He will be prepared for every situation. Who knows... maybe someone will want to trade up to #16 and we trade down? Saban is just getting ready...

Last thing we need to do is draft a reciever with our #1 pick. I couldnt think of any position that would be worst for us to draft besides tightend or kicker.

I agree. Coaches have all their bases covered come draft day. They know their prospects in case of any situation coming up. Coach Saban is just covering another base, getting familiar with this player in particular. I'm sure he'll have many interviews, personal workouts and scouting workouts with a lot of other players too.

How in the Hell do you know that Cutler is Sabans QB. You have no idea what his QB is.

Motion

Jackson is a playmaker. If we could somehow grab him in the 2nd that would be great, or if for some reason Saban trades down. But I do agree we have bigger needs than WR.

Chad Jackson is a 1st Rounder

All of last years draft experts were saying that Saban likes to go for the skill positions in the higher rounds so I would not be surprised if we take a receiver.

I wouldnt mind a wr - I thought C.C was very quiet until the final stretch when he started having those big games. He always starts the season slow - he needs to be more consistent over the whole season. But, he still had a great year and I congratulate him!

BlueFin
01-25-2006, 09:24 AM
Saban willl not pass on a player he might think is a superstar to draft a player of need, its called "best player available".

I'm not saying he's views Jackson that way, I'm just pointing out for the closeminded crowd that anything is possible.

Why would anyone want to replace Booker?

because i do not think he will be here any longer. If TO is a possibility, he is trade bait, plus i believe he could be cut to free up more cap space

Motion
01-25-2006, 10:34 AM
I love CJ but he's no TO. He would be a great #3 right away and challenge Booker for the #2 spot after enough reps. He's a playmaker.

Neither (for this reason), but if we squash the TO rumors it's fine by me. So we are talking to Jackson at the Senior Bowl. We will probably talk to most of the players there. Not sure why this is considered "news".

does anyone have more info on chad jackson? I dont follow much college football and would like to know more about him.

also to comment on the booker thing....I think for some reason fans seem to underappreciate him and always see him as expendible. However, I think he's a great compliment to chambers. If we got a solid young #3 guy we would be set a WR for years to come.

Jackson is a playmaker with very reliable hands. He set the single season record for receptions at Florida this year with 88 catches for 900 yards and 9 TDs, plus 2 rushing TDs. Very athletic, can make some circus catches similar to Chambers but not quite as acrobatic. Won't drop the easy ones like Chris though either. He would be a great addition.

The most important thing is to get some young guys behind our starters that we can groom for the future.

Man o' man!!!! Guys regardless if we draft him or not..its not gonna change our approach on much.....Saban isnt sitting around thinking " If I draft Jackson, I can let Booker go. Or stop looking for a CHEAP alternative" Rookie Wr's rarely come in and start so while it would be nice..its not rational.

Lets look at this year..

Edwards CLE...didnt start the first month of the season.
T. Williamson MIN...did not start but maybe 2-3 games.
M.Williams DET....Never started a game.

thats 3 top ten WR's from last year...it doesnt mean there not/wont be good..point is its hard to come right in and play.


And your talking releasing seasoned Vets..like Booker in hopes that a mid 1st/second round prospect like Jackson would pan out???

Guys, Nick will talk to players all week long...we'll talk to players on every position so stop reading too much into it....we CAN'T draft everyone.....maybe we'll draft 3 or 4 players that are in Mobile right now and the rest could be juniors or seniors that are that in Alabama right now.

Ozzy rules!!

If you don't think there are juniors (that have declared for the draft) making themselves available to the teams/scouts down in Mobile this week you are out of your mind. I never said he was playing....

William Cooley: what's the dumbest thing you've been asked by an nfl team while you are there?

Chad Jackson: (12:40 PM ET ) I've met about 10 or 15 so far. The Dolphins and the Jaguars coaching staffs really stood out. They were great.
