Eagles Take DeSean Jackson With The 49th Pick

I was not a fan of taking Cal WR DeSean Jackson with the 19th pick, but the Eagles were able to land him well into the second round. Jackson is a very crisp route runner, and has blazing fast speed(runs a sub 4.3 40). He has a great ability to create deep separation, and make big plays down field. He should stretch the field for the Eagles, and open things up for everybody else. Jackson is also a terrific punt returner, and I think he is a steal at pick 49.

    This is a STEAL. For all the criticism he’s taken for his size, he’s going to be the best WR in this class. He’ll actually be able to catch the McNabb laser passes that all of the other stinky receivers drop.

    ain’t this shit fun????? we got together with me, a cowboy fan, an iggle fan, a g-string, a cheese head, a vi-queen, a skinner, a rammer, and an all out wacko from the raidernation. what a wing-ding. we had hotwings and all the beer you could piss out. it was a great time. that’s the way to celebrate our draft, guys. not all of us cowboy fans are assholes. some of us are real diehards with the same passion you guys have for your team. it’s all about setting aside are differences and bonding for one day in obsevance of our national holiday good luck to you guys and i hope you all have as much fun out of this as we did….davedallasfan
