What do you guys think? I thought so. I'm surprised with justin miller still on the board they went with jackson since miller is faster and can be a return guy. Jackson is big-ten which we seem to like alot and a solid cover guy and tackler. Hopefully we'll go linebacker or a dt/de tweener like canty (shaun cody could drop we can hope)

I am a huge Michigan Fan and You guys got a great player. Ill miss him. I hope he does good with the Colts. Can play safety or corner but hes ALOT better corner.

ya I wanted them to pick Justin Miller to but I understand now after hearing about what Bill Polian said that Marlin Jackson is a good fit for the colts. You downgrade a little speed for a more physical bigger cornerback which the colts needs.

All in all I like there draft picks my only surprise was Kelvin Laydon 2nd round pick which I was pretty surprise they took him this high but from what I have read about him he has a huge upside.

Only player that I wish they took a chance on was Anthawj Hawthorne who I know tested for positive for drugs but what a big monster of a tackle that could be a huge steal which was picked up in the 5 round I believe. He was a projected 1st round pick. Thats too bad

I am very happy we did not draft Hawthorne as he is a loser - Polian doesn't play that, and bravo to him.

I think Miller also had "character issues" so again, Jackson probably was the most logical pick.

SUpposedly Jackson's biggest weakness is biting hard on play fakes. He will be going against the best play fakes in the game every day in practice so hopefully he will learn Very Happy Laughing Razz

Yeah I think Polian is counting an awful lot on Dungy's ability to teach Jackson and Heyden....
