Ford: Jackson should stay in draft

By ESPNBoston.com

In his latest story on underclassmen in the NBA draft, Chad Ford offers some advice on whether to stay in the draft or go back to school. He puts BC's Reggie Jackson in the "Stay in the Draft" category. Here's what he writers:

Jackson is the toughest call of this group. A handful of NBA scouts and GMs think he has the talent to be a lottery pick in this year's draft. However, there's not a consensus on Jackson. Other GMs and scouts think he's a late first-rounder, or possibly even a second-round pick. Those mixed signals have concerned Jackson's camp. He plans on playing in the workout in New Jersey, where he should be the best player on the floor. I'm in the camp that says he's got lottery talent, and I think it will shine through once he gets into workouts and the NBA draft combine.
