Best Pass Receiver -- Any Level
Shannon Sharpe's on the pre-game set, yakking away. Ed McCaffrey's in his easy chair. The guy with everything -- or everything to gain -- is University of Northern Colorado wide receiver Vincent Jackson, who should go high in next month's NFL draft, despite the presence of some big-name receivers from big-name schools. A 6'5" senior out of Widefield High School in Colorado Springs, Jackson had 1,462 yards and 21 touchdowns as a junior for the Bears, and this fall, when the team was overmatched in its move up to Division I-AA, he still caught eighty passes for 1,382 yards and eleven touchdowns, annihilating the UNC record book and winning All-American honors. Did we mention that Jackson weights 245 pounds and runs the forty in 4.4 seconds? Wow.
