Did anyone else hear about this? This is wild...

Nov 3rd (12:27 PM) - I have noticed how well the Buccaneers Tanard Jackson is doing so far this season and I wanted to address his situation. I was pretty high on Jackson leading up to the draft and was very surprised by the fact that he lasted until the 4th Round. But there's a reason for it. Prior to the draft, he failed TWO drug tests, which made his draft stock drop like a rock. This was not released to the media, which is why no one really knew why he dropped so far. A league source that I spoke with said his team really liked him and would have drafted him but had to pass because they were afraid of the failed drug tests.

I was huge on Tanard going into the draft (I'm an SU fan) and knew he would be a great pro (ask Bills fans on here). He is an excellent tackler with very underrated ball skills and a great break on the ball. I think the drug tests would be pot, since there is a ton up at SU. Tanard easily finds trouble, as is evident when he got stabbed in a bar fight.

I said he was the next Brian Dawkins months before the draft...the guy is a beast.
