Jackson adds size and speed

Posted by Chris Brown on March 31, 2010 – 2:25 pm

Buffalo’s newest wide receiver Chad Jackson is a guy that brings undeniable physical skills to the table.

At almost 6’1″ and 218 pounds (which is what he told me he weighed in at here Wednesday), the guy has rare speed. He’s only 25 years old and here were his combine numbers when he came out in 2006.

His 40 time was 4.32, his 10-yard split was a 1.5. His vertical leap was 38 1/2 inches and his broad jump was 10 feet 2 inches. So there’s no denying he’s a fast and explosive talent. Now it’s the offensive staff’s job to channel that athleticism into consistent production. The tools are there, which makes him a worthwhile wideout to take a chance on despite the fact that his career did not get off to the best start in New England.

Be sure to check the Bills media lounge a little later for an exclusive one-on-one interview with the Bills newest wideout.
