    I have been looking at Jacoby Jones and have found this:

    This is an excellent read. If the writer is even 1/2 on with their analysis Jacoby could be an excellent choice. Check him out.

    He sounds young and inexperienced, will he even be able to start right away? I don't think he will even be a factor this year (except special teams), and that dissapoints me, we need help now!

    Oh yeah. this was a big old shot across his bow. Hopefully this young man can not only return punts but also play WR.

    He’s definitely a project with a lot of up side. Jerry Rice use to help his dad lay bricks in the summer growing up. Hint, hint.

    If he is as good and fast as written, even if he only plays special teams this year, he could still be a big factor.

    Field position isn't anything to sneeze at - and a few fast runbacks for a touchdown could be waay cool.

    If he works as hard this season as he did before his senior year, he might surprise us all. I'm optimistic about JJ.

    most receivers dont run with the ball tightly secure so if Jones is even a little more aware of that I'm not worried about him getting stripped, at least not anymore then i am with anyone else.

    Some may feel that JJ in the third was reaching, but Kubes obviously likes him a lot and if he is "their man" then you take him there if he wont be available when you pick later.

    While this guy might not be a starting WR this year, I like what I've read about him. If he does nothing more than add some excitement to the kick offs and punts, then he's worth it IMO.

    After watching his highlights and his body-type in some clips...coupled with his return skills....I feel much better about this pick. I like the look of this kid, and I like the way he moves.

    I think that they took a calculated risk on Jones .

    He may not have been as safe a pick as say Jason Hill but I think the Texans believe he can be really good .

    I say heck with it ... they paddled to the middle of the lake when they took Schaub ... there's no use in turning back now . :cowboy1:
