The guys from the Pewter Report relay a good handful of Quotes from Head Coach Jon Gruden and recently drafted WR Dexter Jackson:
Gruden on DJax:
Gruden on DJax's Returning Ability:
DJax on his Draft Stock Rising:
DJax on his Return ability:
I know its incredibly early, but Gruden hinted to using DJax strictly as a returner early on and then slowly increasing his role within the offense via Wide Receiving. I think thats great. We need Jacksons game breaking speed in the return game more so than within the offense. Don't get me wrong, he should have a fairly prominent role at least by the bye week, but early on it wont hurt for him to focus on returning the ball and learning the offense. Great, Great Draft Pick. It probably wasnt their 1st, 2nd, or even 3rd option, but never-the-less, DJax is a playmaker and will be an asset on this team...
