Kareem Jackson Scouting Report
By Matt McGuire

Strengths:
Good size and body frame
Three-year starter
Smooth athlete with nice change of direction
Comfortable in press and off-man
Mirrors receivers well
Above average speed
Underrated ball skills
Terrific at anticipating short routes
Smart and instinctive
Fluid hips
Very confident
Competitive and fearless
Very well coached
Displays great awareness of route recognition
Polished and does the little things
Tough in red zone




Weaknesses:
Struggles to get off blocks
Not a very physical hitter
Only two interceptions as a sophomore and junior
Somewhat inconsistent
Gets a little lazy with tackling technique
Needs to use hands better at the line of scrimmage

Summary: Jackson is a talented prospect with the tape to back him up, but he doesn't have first-round tape and is a liability against the run. Jackson has an impressive skill set overall and will be drafted anywhere from late first round to late second round.

Player Comparison: Marcus Trufant. Jackson isn't as consistent as Trufant, but he does have the skill set to be a very good corner.

Good pick. I guess they had him rated higher than Wilson and McCourty

Solid enough pick. I had Wilson rated a bit higher, but Jackson over McCourty. I will take this pick. I give it a solid B.

Believe we picked Jackson over Wilson because of the conference he played in.

The Texans know more than we do, they employ and pay an entire scouting department to sit around and evaluate these guys.

Default Re: Kareem Jackson CB Alabama - 1st round pick

I'll take you guy's word for it. I have no idea who he is (I'm not a big college ball guy, so I don't know who the prospects are). Hopefully he'll be solid contributor right off the bat and live up to being a 1st round pick.

I don't know much about this CB, but LZ was talking him up acouple days before the draft. I'm just glad we didn't draft a P-Burnt clone in Kyle Wilson.

Jackson on 610 right now.

Said he talked to the Texans at the combine but was still surprised they drafted him. looks forward to coming in and working hard and doing anything for the organization. sounded confident.

Where can I buy my Kareem Jackson jersey! Bleeding Crimson Tide red has got to be good for spurning NFL defensive players.

Welcome to Houston, Kareem!

I think with Jackson, Quin and Pollard we have the most physical secondary in the NFL.
