  • Tyson Jackson

    I know this guy was rising, but I can't help but think 3rd overall for a guy who is not great pass rusher or a feared sack artist seems a bit odd to me. I am sure he is going to be good, but you take a guy at 3, he better have the overall ability to become great. I'm not sure Jackson is that guy.

    That's because he's not that guy.

    He'll never live up to the hype, but he'll be a solid pro and fill a huge void and start the overhaul of that switch to the 3-4 defense.

        He has the potential to be that guy, I just don't think he ever pulls it off. Honestly I like him a lot less than I do Jarron Gilbert.

          I would never take a 34 De at 3 overall. Curry would have made a bigger impact for their defense.

            I don't see how any team could have Jackson rated higher than Curry. I thought that this could happen but in no way did I actually think that a NFL GM would be dumb enough to do such a foolish thing.

              Jackson isn't ideal at #3, but he's more valuable to us than Curry or Monroe would have been. I would have liked to trade down, but considering that **** package that Cleveland got, I'm glad we didn't.

                I think Jackson's a safe pick.

                Not worth the #3 pick though, and will end up paying too much money to him.

                Thanks BoneKrusher! The Sig King!

                  Absolutely 100% could not disagree with you more.

                  Curry will be an elite talent. Jarron Gilbert, like mentioned above, is still available. He could play 5tech in the 3-4 and he might even be better than Tyson Jackson over the years. Jackson was a mediocre or average college player and for whatever reason Pioli thinks that is going to translate to a good to GREAT player in the NFL and to put it simply, it just won't.

                  Curry would be an IMPACT player from day one and play at an elite level. He's shown he could do it. Jackson has not. Hell, you just signed Cassel to a 6 year deal with 34 million in guarantees, Monroe is the smartest pick here hands down.

                  It was an absolutely terrible pick, plain and simple.

                    The smart fit here would have been to take Raji and move Dorsey outside as a Seymore type... This pick was awful IMO...

                      One thing to remember. Scott Pioli has multiple Super Bowl rings and has won executive of the year awards while we're posting on a message board. Will wait and see on this one.

                      That's hilariously dumb. Stop posting.

                        Out of Scott's top 10 DEs, Jackson had the third most sacks. How is that "not a great pass rusher"?

                          Glen Dorsey's game translates better to a 3-4 DE than it does as a 3-4 NT...
                          He doesn't translate to anything in a 3-4.

                            Again, we're going to be running the 4-3 under, not a base 3-4. Which is why the Jackson pick makes even less sense than before.
