Look out for Dexter Jackson Next Year...

I was a little perturbed that the Bucs got Aqib Talib instead of the Pats. Frankly, Belichek must be really high on Jerod Mayo, considering that Sedrick Ellis was sitting right there when they decided to trade down and pick Mayo at #10.

Since they got Talib, I decided to check out the rest of the Buc's draft board to see if they made any other choice picks (because that's the sort of masochistic bloke that I am), and it turns out they did.

Dexter Jackson won the Division twice-eh National Championship this past season with Appalachian St., and participated in that historic upset of Michigan along the way.

Actually, he was one mane wrecking-crew in that game.

Trying to find something bad about this kid, NFLDraft101.com says he has a tendency to take his eye off the ball...ooh, that is bad.

Regardless, Jackson had the fastest 40 time at the combine, and can clearly catch the deep ball (he ended the season with 52 and 60 yard touchdown receptions in the National 1-AA semis and finals).

And, coincidentally, the last Buccaneer player named Dexter Jackson was their only Superbowl MVP.

The Bucs took him at with the 59th pick in the draft...which, coincidentally, is the number of strip clubs within Tampa city limits (lucky on multiple levels I'd say).
