    Question Tyson Jackson


    0 Not allowed!
    I was just looking at all the mock drafts today, and nearly everyone has the LSU DE Tyson Jackson being the Chiefs pick.

    My question is, how the heck did this guy rise so fast, and where did everyone get this information that the Chiefs are probably going to pick him? Its just strange, because 2 days ago nearly everyone had Curry on the board for the Chiefs.

    I think we could have waited until at least the eighth pick.
    Do you think the Jags wanted to trade up to the third pick?

    I know they wouldn't wanna trade up to that spot, but you said we could wait til the 8th pick, and that's where the Jags picked.

    Because you stated that we could have gotten Jackson with the eight pick. A trade with the Jags is the only way to pick Jackson eight.

    EDIT: What Three7s said

    I'm guessing he means to keep going past the allowed time until we forfeit down to that pick. It's an interesting idea, but I can't picture a team ever doing it intentionally. I don't even know if you can really do it or not.

    The Vikings did it a couple times. It doesn't work. The guy you draft doesn't take less money because you passed the pick.

    In fact he does. The only time I know of this having happened, was with Bryant Mckinnie. There was a long negotiation, but they did get a slight bargain. Or so they said.

    And that was only one position down in the draft. Five or six spots is going to be a much better bargaining chip, especially with a guy who was not expected to be in the top five anyway.

    Worse come to worse, you pay the same. No loss.

    The point is paying the guy as a number six or seven pick, instead of a number three pick.
