- Todd McShay, Scouts Inc.
Every year there are a handful of prospects that endure the painful process of nose-diving on draft weekend. The 2006 NFL draft was no exception. USC quarterback Matt Leinart was the big story early on, falling all the way to the Cardinals at pick No. 10. But he wasn't the only one. The following is a look at 10 other prospects who -- for one reason or another -- suffered agonizing falls on draft weekend, and how they fit on the teams fortunate enough to get them at a great value:
• Chad Jackson, WR, Florida
Patriots, third pick (No. 36 overall), second round
Jackson needs work as a route runner and he occasionally drops catchable passes when attempting to get up the field before securing the ball. However, he has the most upside of any receiver in the 2006 class -- and that includes Ohio State WR Santonio Holmes. Once again, the Patriots found a way to maneuver the board for a tremendous value at a position of need in the wake of David Givens' offseason departure.
