Does anyone remember when Duane Brown was out there his first couple years and all the crap slung on message boards about him?


I do.


I don't care how "NFL ready" a guy is....there's some adjustment time and being surrounded by vets like he was last season can only help KJ improve.

Remember Mike Jenkins, Wade's #25th pick in 2008.
He started 3 games as the nickel back in his rookie year.

Here's what a Cowboy fan think of him in 2010:

Soooooooooo, it's being talked about but why do I smell smoke and have the feeling something is being blown up my butt? Is Jackson really improving? Have dogs and cats started living together in harmony? What's really going on denizens of texanstalk?

Also, what do we make of him now judged against his contemporaries who went near where he did in the draft of that year (Kyle Wilson, Devin McCourty)?
KJ has improved ten fold from his rookie year. Its a wonder what a good pash rush can do for your CB's.

Kyle Wilson still cannot over take the #2 CB spot from Cromartie, who is extremely over rated at his position.

McCourty is good.

Guys like Patrick Peterson, & Joe Haden... both top 10 picks have struggled since joining the league.

There's no doubt in my mind if the 2010 defense looked like the 2011 defense (or even the 2009 defense) the perception of Kj would be much different around here.

We lost our DL pass rushing rotation before the first half of the first game, Bullman was done for the season in training camp, Barwin went down early game one. Cushing got pregnant, Demeco tore his Achilles when Cushing got back.

Kj is going to be fine, I have no doubt in that.

Hey, didn't Wade draft Ball??

Being afraid to lay a lick on a big back has never been a weakness of Jackson's.

Glad to see he went and checked on the big guy, stay classy Kareem.

Kareem Jackson suffered from poor coaching and poor scheme his first year. He's a very good CB now. Not great, but very good.

He's never been bad when the play is in front of him except for too much cushion. I think that was a result of being beat on the deeper routes and his inability to turn and find the ball. So far he appears to have improved a little on that bot he hasn't had a good QB pick on him yet.

I thought KJ was a very good cb last year and I expect he will be even better this year. In fact do not be shocked if he makes pro bowl.

If KJ makes the Pro Bowl, even HE will be shocked.

I'm reserving judgement on him until I see whether he has learned to turn his head around on long routes.
