Meet WR/PR DeSean Jackson (California) potential Tampa Bay Buc Draft Pick

DeSean Jackson is first and foremost a dual threat. He excels at receiving and returning the football, color me intrigued. Jackson finished with 52 career plays of 20 yards or more. lists Jackson as the Nation’s 7th best Wide Receiving Prospect. Before enrolling in Cal, DeSean participated in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, he caught 7 balls for 141 yards. He also attempted a summersault for a touchdown and landed on the 1 YARD LINE, hah! A Heisman hopeful last season, a right thigh injury limited his touches. Jackson also missed the 1st Quarter of Cal’s 2007 Armed Forces Bowl for breaking undisclosed team rules.

DeSean Jackson doesn't read playbooks. He stares them down until he gets the information he wants.

DeSean Jackson does not sleep. He waits.

We obviously need major help at Wide Receiver and it would be incredible to upgrade the Punt Returning Corps at the same time (Sorry Ike, but ugh).. DeSean's been preparing for the Draft-Pro Days-Combine with future Hall of Fame Wide Receiver Jerry Rice. With the 20th Pick in the Draft I'm not sure the Bucs will have much of a shot at the purebred WR's in next months draft, but they could do a whole lot worse than scooping up DeSean Jackson. With his speed, I wouldnt be surprised to see him off the board come Pick #20...
