Tyson Jackson Drafted #3 to the Chiefs

Yet again, LSU has a player drafted in the first round.  It had been rumored for a day or two that Jackson would go top 5, and I must admit I am still surprised.  Jackson's a fine player, and I believe he'll make a fine pro, but I never would have imagined he would be drafted quite so highly.  I think the present NFL is putting a premium on big, strong defensive ends, where before it placed a premium on smaller, quicker defensive ends.

We're still waiting to see where Darry Beckwith, Quinn Johnson, Kirston Pittman, Herman Johnson, Marlon Favorite, and Brett Helms might go.  Only Beckwith has a decent shot of being a first day pick, and not all are definites to be drafted.
