I want to someone to make the argument as to why Jackson is NOT the best FS in the league.

Ready...GO!

I have watched the pick in the Lions game about 15 times. I can tell you, without a doubt, Jackson read that play from the moment they lined up. Just like he did with the Vikings. His ability to diagnose a play, and time his route to the ball in order to make an effective play on it, IS RIDICULOUS. This is not normal. Being able to not only read the play, but then time the route to make sure you are there when the ball is, is insane.

OK. Someone make the argument. I want to hear it.

Maybe. He’s been a nonfactor on offense this season though.

Yeah, but can he run block?

Now in all seriousness, remember when a lot of us were concerned about how are we going to pay Amos? If I can only keep one, I keep Eddie Jackson. He needs to get paid.

Only real concern is how his tackling can be God-awful during his bad games. He had a 2-3 game stretch starting with MIA IIRC that he was routinely taking bad angles and just missing ballcarriers. I don't think I can remember a game where he was actually abused through the air.

But when he is on, holy shit the guy is ridiculously good. I think the 'lows' will dissipate with more time on the field, he really is a converted corner who didn't get as much game experience due to injuries he sustained in college. He is still learning the position really... which is crazy considering how often he is playing at an elite level.

When we drafted Jackson I was stunned he had fallen that far because his talent was lower 1st/high 2nd round. I also was worried his injury might be worse than thought going into the draft because he had fallen. At this point it is clear the collective GMs were all a bit too cautious and we got a steal in the 4th.
