ColtPower's John Cimasko was in the Colts media room while Tony Dungy and Bill Polian made comments…
Marlin Jackson is a Colt with Draft Pick No. 29
Although Jackson is a cornerback/safety "tweener", the advice of Jackson's former coach helped Dungy make the call on where he fits in with the Colts. "I asked Lloyd Carr that question the other day, what he envisioned (Jackson) playing, and he really sees him as a corner," Dungy said. "That's where I think he'll play".
Jackson phoned in to the press conference and commented on being taken by Indianapolis, "I'm going to be on the same team as Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison," he said. "It's great to come into an organization that's all about winning and being competitive. That's what it's about, being competitive and trying to win and trying to be the best. And that's what the organization in Indianapolis is all about."
Jackson joins former Michigan teammate Cato June (linebacker) on the Colts defense and should compete for one of starting cornerback jobs early. Practice will once again be a daily challenge for Jackson, after years of covering Braylon Edwards every day, he now locks up against one of the NFL's elite receivers in Marvin Harrison. "Marvin's a smaller, quicker guy, more elusive and probably runs crisper routes than Braylon does," Jackson said of the new challenge. "I'll have to get better. Going against a guy like him, I'm a competitor, and that is only going to make me better."
