Mel Kiper on Virginia's Rashawn Jackson

Adam Gottschalk, on the radio this morning, said that Mel Kiper is currently ranking UVa's Rashawn Jackson as the number one fullback prospect for next year's NFL draft.

Wow - until his 90 yard performance against Maryland last week, I'd never really even noticed Jackson ... and according to Kiper he is a legitimate NFL prospect! This furthers my thesis that Al Groh consistently produces players who can succeed in the pro's, but for some reason they don't gel as a team while at Virginia. What accounts for the discrepancy between the talent we've clearly got at individual positions versus the inability to win as a team?

The picture of Jackson is from last week's Maryland game and was taken by Nick Wass of the Associated Press.
