Desean Jackson's scouting report via Scott Wright from NFLDraftCountdown:
An outstanding natural athlete...Excellent speed with a fantastic burst...Extremely elusive and is a terror in the open field...Great quickness and agility...Good hands and will make the tough catch...A legitimate deep threat who can stretch the field vertically...Good leaper with nice body control and ball skills...Versatile and can be utilized in a number of different ways...Decent production...Electrifying return man.
Undersized and doesn't have the bulk you look for...Inconsistent and disappeared from games at times...Is not very strong or physical...Will drop the occasional ball due to lack of focus...A sub par blocker...Can still improve as a route runner...May have some typical star receiver character concerns...Durability might be a concern.
His brother, Byron, played professional football with the NFL's Kansas City Chiefs in 1992-93...An outstanding baseball player in high school who had Major League potential...Was hampered by a thumb injury in 2007..Scored 28 touchdowns in 36 career college games and 23% of his touches went for 20 yards or more...Awfully similar to Ted Ginn, Jr. when he was coming out last year but is more polished as a wideout and an even better return man..One of the most dynamic offensive and special teams weapons in this draft...He may never be a true #1 target in the NFL but he's the type of elite playmaker who is sure to keep defenses awake at night.
