Going against the "Patriot Way," the Pioli-led Chiefs drafted Tyson Jackson with the third pick.

The Chiefs and Pioli passed on the best player in the draft to select a player rated 15-20 on everyone's draft board.

The Chiefs tried to trade out of the pick, but they had no success. Pioli and company decided to draft Tyson Jackson. Tyson is a player that Pioli and Haley have talked about, but was he worthy of the No. 3 pick?

Tyson Jackson loves football. He is passionate about the game. He played his college career at LSU opposite Glenn Dorsey.

The problem with Jackson is that he is a player that can lose focus and take a play off. Jackson will need to stay focused to live up to the No. 3 pick in the draft.

Right now, I think it is a mistake. We will soon see. I have no doubt that Jackson will be a good player, but he will be compared to Aaron Curry his whole career.
