Ron Rivera on drafting Donte Jackson. Gives Marty credit for selling him on a different type of player than usual

Recommended Posts

Thought it was a good pick, my only beef was getting a “groom him up” safety after that pick. Ron and his dated stubborn ideals really are depressing.

Wow your title is very misleading. Rivera was targeting a different type of player and was nervous that he wouldn't fall to us, not nervous about drafting Jackson.

I read it as Rivera was nervous because Hurney refused to move up to get him and Ron was scared someone else would draft him before our pick.

Most of this board hated this pick and wanted Joshua Jackson and that kid from Colorado.

That'd be me.

Hope Jackson pans out, it's still early but I like what I see so far. He's better than I anticipated and that has a lot to do with the fact that he was a Hurney second rounder and that clouded my judgement. 

Still think he's a little too slight, I've seen him pushed around on some run plays a few times, but not nearly as much as I thought he would be. He's a great and willing tackler and very physical for a guy his size. 

He's still a rookie but so far so good.

That's how the quote reads. The title of this thread makes one think Ron was nervous about Jackson being a different type of player which is not the case at all.

Draft guys who can actually run works?? Who knew? I thought it was a good pick all along. Tho I would have sold him and our 3rd to move up and get Derwin James... wanted him bad.

Ron has always had an eye for personnel and talent--it started with Hurney--when he took Marty's sister to the prom:

I'll have to rewatch the presser. I interpreted Ron's nervous as hell comments to fearing Donte would be off the board before we picked, thinking Marty should move up and take him, because they had targeted him so heavily and REALLY wanted him.

But I could be wrong.

I misread it. You’re right.

Changed the title for accuracy.

No problem, I know there are some posters out there who would do that intentionally but you are definitely not one of them.

Speak for yourself. I was one of the first to say the kid would be good. 

That's super cool man but also not the point I was making.

A lot of people that critique Ron over every thing he does despite most people in the thread hating the pick.

Now we're brerating him for admitting he was nervous about branching off from his normal and taking a chance when a lot of people here were mad we didn't drart one of those two cornere.

Doesn't apply to you, cool my guy, that wasn't directed at you then.

Turns out this was based off a misread anyway so

The draft is one of those times where people are all over the place. I think a week after most were excited about Jackson. The only person I remember trashing him was that Saints fan.
